General Discussion / Re: How is everyone braving the winter?
« Last post by Joe A. on March 25, 2014, 05:25:45 AM »
Officially we've received just under 5 feet of snow with more expected tonight. Temps in the teens to -15. Don't forget to make use of such things as Yak-Trax, flip up spikes for canes and ski poles.

Scandal? The communists are still in power and they have the economy so screwed up that 41% of the population is on some form of government assistance. 6 states have filed court proceedings to secede from the union. 28 states have decriminalized marijuana while 2 have made it altogether legal.

Annieg, how are you? I know that here in Western Mass, spring only seems to tease us! Must be nice to live near the sunny beaches of the cape or in warm, toasty Ireland like Steve! I'm jealous! We drove up to North Hadley this morning to have a waffle and pancake breakfast at the sugar shack on RT47.(peak of maple sugar season here). It would have been a one and a half hour wait. We thought the parking area was overflowing due to all the tourists and locals out for Sunday breakfast and to tour the process of taking the fresh sap from maple trees and boiling it down to the maple syrup we all love!! Imagine our surprise when we learned that all those people had come from all over New England because of an internet rumor that someone had actually seen a real, live crocus somewhere in the Pioneer Valley! ;)  Anyway, spring is just around the corner in this part of the world. Now, if I can only find out which corner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good to see everyone waking up after this long winter.  The first day of spring has come & gone.  Today on tv the weather person was predicting a snow storm for Tue/Wed!  We have gotten through the worst and are looking forward to better weather.  We had a lot of snow and scary walking.  Hope you are all well.  Steve, that is a great picture - Mother Nature can be a b***h!  LOL  annieg

And I was just gonna ask if they paid travel expenses.
Oh well, guess I'll have to find another way to get there.

I was stationed in England (Ipswich) for 4 years with the USAF, but never made it to Ireland.
Made it to Wales tho,

I hate replying to myself, but, yesterday I was fitted for a new socket, given a better liner, and had the dep dir of the VA Hosp I'm going thru, oversee the process.
I've got a new Plie' 2.0 sitting in the box waiting for the socket.
And, it's going to be the right length, and attach directly under the socket.
 (the one I have now is offset to compensate for the articulation of my stump)
(my issues were: 1. Poor fitting socket, losing air while walking (let alone sitting)  2: too long by 3/8 inch 3: rubbed in my crotch)

My stump has now shrunk a little more and is now hanging down to almost the same level/angle as my good leg. (vs forward a little)

So, hopefully I'm on the way to a better gait and normality (whatever that may be for me)

Love, prayers, and the best of our situation to all.

  Dave, it defintely is not easy to {walk} in snow or ice.  Went to beauty shop & had to have someone move my vehicle closer;  good grief there were {ice} ruts 3 inches deep       >:(     More cold & ice storms predicted for tonight & tomorrow morning.

I am glad Dolphin loves to ski in it, but I think he's right;  Spring is just around the corner  :)

Here in central Ohio, we had a brief bit of warm (50) weather, but, then back to 0 and snow flurries.
I'm about had it with this long, cold winter.
Fallen a few times on the ice/snow, and get mad as heck.

I'm gonna retire soon and move SOUTH.
Where? I don't care, just SOUTH.
Texas probably. Daughter is there, and she's got a nice pool, and cold beer
Yea, that sounds god. Pool and beer.
Yea, I'm gonna move in with my daughter.
OK, Carry on
