Richard - I was like you with my bicycle - especially after having both knees replaced and a lung condition. I splashed out on an electric bike. Not fully electric (although it can be if I so desired!) as it has a 6 speed and works just like a regular bike - but has a twist grip to add electric power if needed.

When I started riding it I used the electric a lot, but now I find I use the assist only for helping with inclines and head winds, or if I have gone a long way and need help getting home (it has a 40 mile range!). As a result I am now actually cycling/pedaling more than I ever did with my old Trek 21-speed!

It is a Pedego Comfort Cruiser. Not cheap I must say, but worth looking up if you are interested. I bought the one that has the low crossbar (ladies version if you like) as I had the same problem as you, in getting my leg up and over - I fell too. Liane liked it so much she has bought one too. Now we cycle every day instead of maybe once every couple of months. [emoticon]

With the improvements in the bike paths in Gulf Shores state park there are huge numbers of bikers. We saw a couple of recumbent trikes that really looked great (except for the price [emoticon]) The one we liked the best was a Terra Trike, they happened to be made in Grand Rapids, MI I think. One model had an electric assist and with the recumbent feature you don't fear falling. The model we saw had a seat almost like a car seat that was more upright for back support and was high enough that it looked pretty easy to get in and out without looking like a fool.

If you get back to Michigan you could get a tour of the factory [emoticon]

Today is my birthday. I am 9 years old. I am hoping to get some of my favorite desert for super tonight. ICE CREAM I just love it. I know when Mom or Dad opens the freezer I can hear them take out the ice cream. I look at them like well where is mine and 99% of the time I get some. I just love my ice cream.

The sun is shining and looks like it is going to be a gorgeous day. So I will be taking Dad and maybe Mom on some walks to enjoy the sunshine and celebrate my birthday. [emoticon]

Good morning everyone. Yesterday I started feeling bad and had a low grade fever. Turns out I have a UTI. So I don't have the virus bug or anything exciting going on, just old age and a UTI. I slept intil 10AM this morning. Dixie was up and down on the bed trying to get me up. Boy I feel kind od rough with the UTI. Diapers are the dress for the day. Last night I woke up sweating like a race horse. I had a fever of 101.7 yesterday. was afraid I was coming down with the virus. After talking with the doctor the only thing I had was a fever without the shortness of breath and without the other symptoms. later in the evening I realized where my real problems were. Now I have to wait until tomorrow to see my other doctor and get an antibiotic.

I guess then all is well for now. Just wait and see how things turn out tomorrow. I hope all is well with everyone and you are safe and healthy. I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. cat fight on the front porch gotta go.

Happy Easter to everyone. Found out the other day one of my Grand Daughters tested positive and so did her Husband. Their symptoms did not include a fever or hard breathing. You all be careful.

Good Morning FOOFs

I got out of the house for the first time in a week over the weekend. We took the motorhome on about a 50 mile drive. It has been sitting for 2 months so I wanted to give it some exercise and to run the generator for awhile.

It seems like all I have been doing lately is spending money. I have been wanting to get my windows replaced in the house for several years. I finally reached out to a local window company and they came out and measured last week. I am having impact windows installed. They are supposed to be good for 150mph windows and they have a 30 year warranty on them. If any of them fog up, they will replace them for free (including labor).

We also took a trip to the local Jeep dealership. Jeep has been offering 0% interest and the lot is full of Jeeps/cars/trucks that aren't moving. We ended up getting a really good deal and traded in Donna's 2014 black jeep on a 2020 Jeep Wrangler 4 Dr. It has so many bells and whistles that it will take some time to figure everything out. Adaptive cruise control, dual zone climate control, backup cameras, automatic top, etc. The dealership did a good job with social distancing. They didn't have any cars in the showroom because they had large tables that were spaced out. The only person I go close to was the sales person who sat in the back seat during the test drive.

So I have done by part by helping out the local economy this week!

Here are a couple of pictures of Donna's new Jeep.

I really like the color of Donna's new jeep. Years ago when Garland and I were in our "classic car" phase, we had a 1959 Chevy that we had painted just about that exact color.[emoticon]
