well done-- a good night's sleep !!
janine's idea of a donkey blocking the off cameraq area a worked fine--
outta teh box--- every time.
a good night's sleep is an idea generator-- and today's problem is teh "UP" factor.
37.3 % of teh hanicap crutch/walker problem is the "UP" factor...
and too much bending over to keep your centrer of gravity where it does not get behind you
will eventually get you into a wheelchair...
to use a crutch, cane, or walker insists that you bend forward--
now if...... keeping in mind i have minus 13% of medical knowledge
and only 12% of practical engineering background ...
if there is some way of attaching a weight to a cane---...
if you have a 150 pound moveable cane--- which i can not figure out -- unless...
you attach your handle to either a dane or the rear end of a 150 pound companion
this would enable you to stand up straight and walk more normally because of teh "UP" factor
as long as teh dane has a comfortable harness and teh person does not mind an ocasional wedgie
your chances of walking normally is far better than a cane .
ustabe-- long ago -- megan had a perfect pet dane and very useful in all manner of things... fido
i think it was fido that enabled us to test if a kid could walk with a dane-
i remember giving a small kid a $10 bill in one hand-- fido in the other-
and told her i would meet her at teh ice cream booth at the other end of the mall
30 feet behind her, she was followed by 2 very nervous parents
i left for the ice cream booth- ( as you would expect me to do) and she made it.
that was our initial test case- which eventually evolved into bella hunter,eve, fiona and erica..
as i watched them-- and so many others - i saw the UP factor was not being addressed by the normal medical community.
i am very sorry to say we do not have a fido now.... sizzle and bentley just are not there i am ashamed to say,
maybe megan's old gal might be close-- but very old... we need a bombproof fido.
so LACKING THAT...... WHERE COULF I POSSIBLE TEST THIS UP FACTOR?
THE MONKEY FIST/BALL ON MY ADULT SWING SET !!
I CERTAINL DO NOT WANT TO TELL SOME KID TO GO TRY IT- THAT IS WHAT MOMS ARE FOR.
THERE WAS A NICE KIKD HERE LAST NIGHT AND I WANTED TO TALK TO MOM BUTTHE TIME WAS JUST NOT RIGHT-- SO MOM IF YOU ARE READING THIS-- I KNOW YOU SAID THE BACK POCKET WAS WORKING... HOW ABOUT STANDING WITH THE MONKEY FIST??
WHO KNOWA WHERE THIS COULD LEAD??? I KNOW Hving ropes haqnging around here is a big helop to alot of people- but they in themselves do not address the up factor-- now we could modify them by attaching bowling balls to the bottom of tehm-- or more conveniently bottles of water..
might be hard to explain to visitors- but we are not trying to impress visitors--
i gave that up long ago...
i never in my life had anyone stop me and tell me what a well cut lawn--- or spotless kitchen counter i had.
i get untold number of compliments on my dogs
so i gave up lawn cutting and counter wiping
