And you could run him into things too! The last time we went to Disneyland (about 17 years ago) Janet's Rheumatoid Arthritis was fairly new and not yet controlled so she was in a wheelchair, I was pushing. I hit a number of people BUT it wasn't my fault. Damn stupid people walk like they drive, see a small space in front of the chair and move into it. Did that hurt? Well DUH!!!! A wheelchair with an adult passenger doesn't stop on a dime idiot.

There was one good side to having the wheelchair, you get to jump the line on most of the rides. The one for the Matterhorn has the switchback corral and then usually wraps all the way around the mountain. We got in line at the beginning of the switchbacks. Space Mountain? They send you in the out door. Soon as the ride finishes and all the previous patrons get out, you get on. No line at all.

And now you know why I am not going to take a bunch of pills for a "maybe" diagnosis, of" maybe you had a partial seizure, but we can't really find anything to support this"......:barnie:rant:somad:rant:duc
.
I Also agree on the taking pain meds all the time. I would like for it to not hurt so much, but would not want to not feel any of the pain in my ankle or knee because then I would abuse it. If I could get enough relief to be able to walk semi-normal, it would be nice. And yes, I would probably put off the surgery for another year or so, because I really would like to be completely retired to do it. I am working on that but like @Mini Horses , I would like to do a few more things to get a little better set financially before I get to having no "extra" paycheck. Although I do have the cattle and sales of calves to add to the coffers .....
But I also am not so stupid to do things that I shouldn't just because it doesn't hurt ..... I believe that pain is the body's way of telling you that you need to take it easier, be more careful of the area hurting. And since so many of them do nothing for me, no sense to just take more and more.....
But there are days I would like to block the pain in the ankle just so I could walk normal....

Going to buy a new Dewalt table saw thats on sale at lowes tommrow, have decided to wrap center kitchen island in barnboard and make barnboard doors for pantry ...
.the move has been put on hold for this year as we just don't want to leave the things that we enjoy living here, goats are pregnant, bred some rabbits today and I really want to see the bamboo grow and the landscape plants mature...
Guess we will just take our chances living away from a hospital.
My SSD ( single sided deafness) is making me more of a reclusive person, and that is just fine with me. I can't hear traffic when I try to cross the parking lot when shopping and driving is a challenge, so being alone here works well for me. We will just have to figure out the back surgery for leon.....
So now we will get to enjoy the fruits of our labor that we have been busy doing. Love the new tile lookin the master bath and kitchen., and am really happy to get that barn board look going in the kitchen.
Got to bring neighbors doe here tommrow to rebreed, then off to get the table saw and a burger.
Since Mel has moved on to a larger and better home for his needs, Missy and Sophie have moved back inside with us....and loving it.
Hope everyone had a good veteran's day, and to those on here that it applies to THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE....
hope ya all have a great night !

Forgot to mention, part of the not selling reasoning is that they are going to be putting in a highway to cut out using I 10 and it will connect to I 75, we are hoping that it will increase property values and there has been "talk" of a hospital being built nearby....fingers crossed !

Did we transfer Mel too early? I'm glad you guys are taking the time to do what you want to do rather than what you thought you needed to do.

No Mike, ...I really want the best for Mel....he has more space to run at your place and looks very content with his sheep herd and Maisy, and his humans. , leon and I were talking about that last night, and although we miss him and love him....he truly has a home now where he can be a true LGD, he was ready for his new job.
I love him enough to want the very best for him...and he has that with you (can't get emoji)to work so ) big hugs to you and Teresa, and much love to Mel
Still probably should move, but old and stubborn enough not to leave what I love........till we are forced to. @Mike CHS...but if you need him to go, we would welcome him back in a heartbeat, lol

Well -- sometimes things work out. You MAY be able to stay and you may be able to work Leon into a rehab after his back op to help both of you through recovery. It would be AWESOME to have facilities closer but, that would probably be a few years out. And you have been looking to see what's out there in case you need to rethink again.

As to Mel, I believe he is doing what God intended for him. While you certainly miss and love that awesome guy, he does appear to be so very content with Maisy and the sheep. If I were an LGD, I'd sure be happy living there with the farm and wonderful animal caring humans!! At this stage in YOUR life, it seems the best to know he's loved, cared for well and settled.
