If I had needed a wheelchair during my recovery, I knew exactly which one I should buy. I could multitask while I was recovering. When we were at the Oregon Coast for our anniversary weekend last month, we stopped at a little antiques and collectibles store in an old gas station beside the highway. This was parked near the front door.When we saw it, we couldn’t help but smile. We had to get closer to see this amazing piece of equipment! This was a ‘working’ chair.Think of the lawns you could mow and the things you could do! The sign on the seat gave more ideas.I don’t know if the price included Winnie The Pooh, but we sure would have included him in our bartering - if we had decided to bring this lovely chair home with us.Fortunately, I don’t need a wheelchair and I don’t know anyone who does. If you’re interested, I’d be glad to give you directions to this little shop. You could head that way to see if this special ‘find’ is still there – waiting for you!

Joey, my little rascally dog, recently sneaked into my office to tell you that I was having back problems. Thank you for your good wishes and prayers for my recovery. I am much better and I’m able to do most of my normal activities again. At first my doctor thought I had a compression fracture in my back but the good news was that x-rays didn’t show a fracture. They showed that I have osteo-arthritis in my back so I’m learning to change the way I do some things. A bone density scan yesterday confirmed that my bones are strong and healthy. That was good news that gave me peace of mind. However, I did learn that I’m shorter now than I used to be!
