Memzy made a pre-birthday cake for Uncle John.
Cathleen and Jillian. Beautiful girls, inside and out.
Of course we had to take them to Dewars. You can't visit Bakersfield without going to Dewars for ice cream. It's mandatory.
The other big news of the week. . . . .drum roll please. . . . . .Cris got his new power wheelchair!!! This beautiful chair came with mixed emotions. Grateful to have it--wish he didn't need it. Now here's my question. Why does this buggy cost so much (you don't want to know). Kudo's to our insurance company--love them. It doesn't have a windshield or windshield wipers, no turn signals, no radio or CD player. So what's up? It's kind of like a transformer robot---you know--one minute you're sitting, the next minute it's a sky chair raising you up. (Sky chair is a reference to a game Cris used to play with the kids when they were toddlers) The computer screen lets you do all kinds of things, forward, back, round and round. It's really quite awesome.
We are currently accepting suggestions on how we can accessorize/decorate/flamboyantize it. This will be for amusement purposes only--he plans to keep as low a profile as possible while in it. I say he needs flags, a squeezer horn and side mirrors.
These are the technicians delivering, adjusting, instructing. Click on this picture to make it big and marvel at the intricacies of the machine.
