Feeling stronger today.

Posted 04-25-2024 at 11:56 AM by Driver 47

I'm feeling pretty good today. I just turned 69 earlier this month but in my head I'm still 17 and reckless. I had my last day of physical therapy, at least for this go 'round with the insurance companies. I got the go-ahead from my medical team to re start my yoga instruction. That's helped me gain quite a bit of mobility so far. The only thing giving me difficulty is transitioning from reclining postures to standing and back down again, but I'm improving steadily. I feel like I'll be...

Bathroom Project

Posted 03-27-2024 at 11:32 AM by Driver 47

Finished a while ago actually. The contractors all gone, dust has settled, and now I have a second walk-in shower. Our on-suit has one at the other end of the house but it's too cramped for me. The new one is mostly for guests, but I like it better so, I view it as "mine". Rainfall shower overhead with an extended handheld attachment so I can sit on the built-in bench and not worry about falling down.
What I really like is the way the glass doors shed water. Everything just runs...

Jealousy or Cooties ?

Posted 11-24-2023 at 09:39 AM by Driver 47

Remember kids teasing about one having "Cooties" as an excuse for ignoring them?
Several years ago I was in what the media described as a "horrific accident." Let's just say it was life changing! Most injuries aside, The most life threatening was a compound fracture of my skull which caused internal bleeding in my brain. I wasn't expected to survive the night, but I did. One of the complications was amnesia. Not just a "forget about the accident" kind...

Bathroom Project

Posted 11-10-2023 at 10:18 AM by Driver 47

Funny how one project grows and morphs into something bigger. I wanted a bathtub taken out of and converted into a walk-in shower as both my Mrs and I prefer showers to soaking in the tub. The bathroom in question is for the first floor and the second-floor guest rooms. I would rather have a half bath for the first floor (Where the master suite is) and a walk-in shower with W/C & vanity upstairs for the guest rooms except it would necessitate repositioning a wall and running plumbing up from...
