Thursday, 3, February, 2011. Good At Solving Problems.

Cadavre Exquis - 1997

Acrylic on canvas
Painting made by Leonora Carrington with collaboration of
Pablo Weisz-Carrington.

This morning at 08.30 Harm from Welzorg came round to collect my wheelchair to 
 repair it.

At 11.47 Richie and I were both extremely surprised when Harm was back with the wheelchair.

Neither of us had expected the wheelchair to come back today, let alone earlier than 13.00 which had been agreed.

Amazingly it was not only back, but it seemed to be well adjusted for the table to be pulled right out without hitting me in the face.

When Richie had hoisted me into the wheelchair, he could effortlessly and safely put the table in front of me.

Then we discovered that it was listing to one side, as well as resting on my right knee, which could cause a pressure sore.

Luckily Richie is good at solving problems, so he made some adjustments which raised the table and straightened it too.

Tomorrow we have a 14.0 appointment with Michelle my last advisor who organised the adaption to the wheelchair seat and getting the wheelchair table.

Richie wants her advice how best to adjust the left arm support which is now on inch too low right now.

Once that is done then the wheelchair table will have been well adjusted for me to use safely

Hi Herrad~
Just stopping by to say hello.
Down in the dumps a bit as I lost a dear friend suddenly. (he was just 49). Ron & I have been friends my whole life. I am just sad today. Life is so precious. One day everything can change.
I worry about his son (17) and hope that Ron was able to tell him enough, teach him enough, and love him enough.

Hi Janis,
Really sad to read about your losing such a good and special friend.
He sounds like he was a wonderful friend.
Anytime is horrible to lose someone so close to you.
His poor boy, 17 is too young to lose his dad.

Hi Wheelchair,
Thanks for your visit, I intend to visit your website soon.

Thanks both of you for coming by and leaving comments.
Hope you remember lots of good memories of your special friend.
Have a relaxing weekend.

Hi Jamie,
Thanks for your visits.
The picture is by a very well known artist/writer and is in an art gallery.
Probably priceless.
