    For some reason I absolutely don't comprehend, we've been the target of several hostile takeovers.  First, as I remember, a deluge of gibberish posts.  Looked like English, but made no sense.  Then we were attacked by shoe huckstres, twice.  This kind of made any serious dialogue btween amps impossible.  Hope it doesn't ruin the site.  Before the hostile takeovers, it was splendid.

    spare parts

    Monday, February 27, 2012, 1:21 PM [General]

    For some reason the blog I started disappeared.  If it was blank, computer glitch.  What I wanted to talk about is spare parts.  I have an assortment of them.  As I got a new pros, the prosthetist would hand me the old one, I always took it home, removed all the parts removeable, have them stashed.  Know that a bunch of you do the same.  What do you all think of the idea of a spare parts exchange?  We list what we have, save bucks on the prostehtist by going to our buds, for a reasonable fee and shipping, rather than the prosthetist when possible.  What do you think"

    Hi Ben...I have had a prosthetic leg for 14 mos but it never fit right and I was never able to walk with it. I just got it back a few days ago switching from the lock and pin socket to a suction socket. I also had a problem with the hydraulic knee. So technically I have never learned to walk yet. In the interim of waiting on the socket change and fighting insurance for 8 months to get it...I've developed a blockage in my natural leg and now blood isn't flowing the way it should. So I need to first get that opened before I can get into a lot of walking. Right now applying weight to it for a couple of minutes has me going back to the chair.

    Good to hear you still ski. Tried that once with my brother, never again! I was a danger to myself and others. Wish he had taught me how to slow down and stop... The WA branch of the family is in the Tri-Cities and Walla Walla. Glad someone is enjoying the winter.
