Lovely To Be Well Dressed Again.

 Vilhelm Bjerke Petersen.

It’s windy, rainy intensely gray today, on Monday Richie and I ate two big, tasty strawberries from our plant on the bedroom balustrade, we have had the plant for over 11 years.

It is a plant we had in the Haarlemmerdijk; we moved away in 2000, this plant has consistently produced good strawberries.

Richie has made a wonderful discovery, which will have a positive effect on me and my clothes.

Yesterday Richie cut the bottom out of a baggy pair of trousers; he also cut the waistband, cutting a large part of the bottom out of trousers means it is much easier to get them on.

Up to now a lot of my clothes have got ripped being put on me, I get dressed in the shower chair, Richie has to somehow pull trousers up over the hard plastic chair.

That causes strain on the clothes which end up getting ripped, better to remove than to rip trousers.

What is good about this is it makes dressing me easier for Richie and it means that my trousers will finally fit well again.

All Richie has to do is pull the trousers up my legs, then lay it over me up to my waist and tuck the sides and waistband around me.

This is a wonderful development; it means that I will be able to wear smart black trousers and black jeans again.

Beautiful prospect, not be bundled up like a poor invalid, it will be lovely to be well dressed again.

hmmmmmmm, you know till you mentioned it i hadn't even considered that wearing clothes was an issue. Stupid of me eh, but it makes sense. I am glad you both found a solution.

Today i witnessed something that made me a bit sad. We (other passengers) waiting for the bus to arrive. It came and everyone boarded. There was a woman in one of those scooters. She needed to get on. The bus has a ramp that is lowered and the person will drive in where the seat will be positioned up so that they can lock in, in that area. Today it seem that the ramp wasn't working. The driver made no attempt to get out and try to manually open it and just said to the woman. "you will have to wait for the next bus." the next bus is 30 minutes! I thought, 'God that so easily could be any of us, to be just left, it wasn't a good feeling to see and i imagine for her it wasn't a good feeling to be left.

Have a great weekend
regards to richie.

Wow, I doubt I would ever have come up with that solution. Good job, Richie! I imagine it makes taking them off in a hurry easier too!
