Welcome to my blog. I have had ALS for 10 years now.

Since I started this blog in June 2008 I've had amazing feedback. Family, friends, people from all over North America, Australia, Scotland, England, and places I can't recall, have commented, encouraged and corresponded. I had no idea when Cynthia taught me how to set this up, how much I would love posting and how many people would read it. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has helped propel this therapeutic exercise into a daily routine. All of you, both friends and visitors, are now part of my blog family. Welcome.

I finally did it! Helicopter Ride to Remember.

Thanks to my friend Carol, I got to ride on a helicopter for the first time in my life.
I went with Grace(my Care Worker), Carol, Bobbi and Barb.
Are you wondering how many strong young men it took to carry me into the helicopter? 5 to be exact!! One young man had his head pressed against my chest and as they were about to lift me he said,"By the way--my name is Kevin." Great bunch of guys.
Getting out was a bigger challenge, but we made it and the last picture of me was taken at the Flying Beaver Pub. Perfect way to end the day.
We took a hundred pictures, but I had pity on you all and narrowed the collection down to 17.
