Blisss Came to Visit
great is this? My eldest sister and brother-in-law came to
visit with my niece and nephew. I love showing this place
off. I dont just mean our house, I mean the whole county.
You have to remember, they live on Long Island, where all
the prices are sky-high. So when they come to our little burg
and see the real estate and even restaurant prices, its
the reverse of sticker shock for them.
always a pleasure have family come to visit, especially since
I hadnt seen this particular brother-in-law (hey, Howard)
in several years. You know how it is. Everybodys busy
and nobody gets to see family as much as theyd like
to. Especially when family is over five hours away.
my mother and other sister are at least eight hours away by
car, so I dont get to see family much. Which is why
it meant the world to me that my sister and family made the
effort to come here.
to me, that travel these days is at a minimum. Especially
air travel. Ive noticed airlines going bankrupt and
losing millions lately, so its not just my imagination.
Take Herman and I, for example, we drove to Florida this year
(not that Ill ever do it again) but I guess we had to
try it once. And of course with my wheel chair, it just makes
any kind of travel hard.
Im one to stay at home. I have no problem traveling,
its just the wheel chair that gets in the way. But even
with that, Im still on the go. Speaking of which, have
I mentioned lately that I have been getting up and walking
in physical therapy? This is with a lot of help on both sides
of me. But get up and go I do. Its very cool looking
people directly in the face as Im walking instead of
having to look up all the time. My last tour was seventeen
feet, and let me tell you, I am tired afterwards. And so is
my aide and the physical therapist.
to take this opportunity to thank everybody at the Wells House,
especially my physical therapist, Robin. That physical therapy
department is really great. I thank them each week, but I
want to publicly thank them here. So thanks, guys! It really
helps that you encourage everyone there to do all that they
once again to my sister and brother-in-law for making the
effort to come way up here to visit us. Talk to you guys next
