It's Not Even Summer Yet!

Whoa!  It has been HOT down here!  No....I was NOT referring to Hell!  Just the good ole South!  It's not even Summer yet for heavens sake!

I can just tell...........that it's gonna be a really HOT ONE! 

The "Memorial Day" weekend just flew by!  I hope everyone had a great time during the Holiday. 

You might or might not notice that I changed my background on the blog. 

I decided that there was just TOO MUCH going on with the patchwork stuff!

Me, I just sat at home and kept nicccccce and COOL inside!

Hubby played golf, and ohh........then he played some more golf!  LOL!

Honestly, I'm not sure what he'd do if he ever became unable to play the game.

Oh, by the way, the hubby is now something of a celebrity, I suppose. He was interviewed and appeared in an issue of an online newsletter for "Prosthetic and Orthodic" Technicians.

He was interviewed by the Marketing representative for his Prosthetic Tech. Doctor. 

The link is presented as an email, but is actually an online Newsletter for Prosthetic Technicians and their patients.

As you all know from past posts, the hubby is a "BTK" amputee. His left leg had to be amputated due to a surgical procedure that went horribly wrong. Even though he walks with the aid of a prosthesis, he manages to do most everything everyone else does, it just takes him a little longer.

If you missed the pics I took of his prosthesis before, you will find them HERE

His "Prosthetic Technician Specialist" made it especially for hubby. He can play golf just as good as anyone else. His prosthesis is made especially for him to be able to 'pivot' with the swing of his golf club.

Most recently he was interviewed for an article in a Prosthetics Technicians Newsletter about his 'Disability'. The hubby does NOT like to consider himself disabled, even though, technically he is most definitely so. 

Anyway, I thought I'd put it out there for ya' all to see and read.  It's worth the read, because it was a very good article.

So, without further ado, below is the link to the article.

Do me the honor of letting me know what ya' all think please?  I thought the hubby did an excellent job of presenting his feelings about being a BTK, (below-the-knee), amputee.
