As many of you know my mother is recovering from hip surgery. Last night, while we were working in our basement, and enjoying our weekly visit from our dear friend Maura I recieved a phone call from her. She told me of many things she's able to do now. Small, meaningless, everyday things that people do, but for her six weeks ago were impossible.

I thought about this miracle today, and find myself thinking for my mother today as I did 9 years ago for myself. I'm thankful for the technology that has allowed my mother, as well as myself the ability to walk again. In this season of thanksgiving I also want to say thanks to all my friends who have taken a couple of minutes to spend with The Man of Steel Leg. All of your comments have become a source of great happiness and enjoyment to me. It's is really fun being one of an elite corp of independant male bloggers in our loop. "Jus' big old me and Papa D" I want to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving

It's amazing what we take for granted sometimes, isn't it?

Well, I think the male Bloggers rock (and that said, I'll ignore the previous comments on the Bengals !)

Wow, has it really been 9 years since you became the steel-legged man?!? Technology is amazing. I'm really happy that your mom is doing so much better.

And I'm glad Ray has some male companionship here. In another 2 years, he will be alone in our estrogen ocean Hotel!! (Jeff Foxworthy says he lives in the estrogen ocean. Ray loves the phrase so much he uses it, as it's so apropos to our situation!)
