These new fandangled inventions. Took me years to get a VCR and a microwave, lol... Works though. I had to use it for 911 this last month. Second time in 2 months, sheeeesh!!! I tripped on the chair mat in my office. Our world Tom has indeed become one of inches.

Stick: Thanks.
Ray, and all others,
I hope no one interprets my earlier post, and I apologize without reservation to all who do interpret my post as me saying "I'm worse off than you; I have it rougher… etc". My intent is to point out that living with a disability can be difficult but and here is a list of some of the things that make my life difficult. In my case difficult does not mean impossible and I want to to give hope to others with disabilities.
What we need to do is look at what a person can do, not condemn them for what they cannot do.

Hey Tom, I for one did not take what you said that way at all. I hears ya bro and we do have the choice of standing (sitting, laying) still or moving on the best we can. I for one will be out there in my garage figuring out how to work wood from both the layman perspective and the disabled perspective. We shall cheer each other onward!!!
