So Long, Miyagi


Have you ever seen such a beaut? Talk about rolling in style. Take a good look at this bad boy. Padded seats, extended legs, flexible arm rests, fancy wheel locks… and the mega granddaddy of them all… a pouch for my goodies.

Just the other day, I asked my cousin, if she would look for a Fannie pack for me. Yes, that’s right, a Fannie pack. It’s annoying traveling around in the chair without a place to set essential items… i.e. cell phone, chap stick, sunglasses, Skittles, whatever tickles your fancy. But, now with my new and improved set of wheels, I can ride in style and sit longer than a few minutes on my broken pelvis. Sayonara Mr. Miyagi. Hello…… Durango!

If it wasn’t a rental, I would slap some bumper stickers on the rear. The ridiculous ones like, “My Child Is An Honor Student.” I’m so happy it is a rental though. Bud always says… nothing parties like a rental.

Sticker Family Pride

Oh snap! I just thought of something brilliant. Not sure how you feel about the white stick figure people car stickers… but now, my Durango is a proud sticker toting two wheel drive.

I spent the rest of the day enjoying the many amenities Durango has to offer.

On a side note, I slept through the night without waking up to take a pain pill. The morning hours are always the roughest, because my body is so stiff from laying in one position. The pain is still there, but, I’m happy to be making strides on the road to recovery.
