Now this next one was taken in 2005. Great memory there!

 I was playing around with a cam an a mirror, so it is a picture of me in a mirror. LOL  I was trying to look serious!  Trying to hold the cam straight. Was trying to look at the screen to see if my head was even in the picture! lol

Then in the early Spring of 2006 my son just had to go with me as I revisited the Pacific Ocean. Believe me it is still cold! This was the first time he had seen an Ocean He went Ocean picture crazy with his camera!


Now Leslie saw this picture and thought I had lost one of my legs! No, I am walking in this shot!

 I got caught by the tide coming in!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I was bent over just about to take my shoes off, to test the water and it had missed me so much it came running to greet me!

Another 2006, early Spring shot on the Pacific Ocean. Wow, look at all that redwood drift wood will you!

Yes, I came sailing out of the air in a freak accident and did a crash landing which sort of broke up my back and knees etc.

 Was told I would never walk again. First I was a bed patient. Then finally I could stand the pain enough, after doing lots of bed exercises and I went to a wheel chair.

But I keep fighting 

 Hey, I made it to crutches! Wooooo Hoooooo

But what really changed in how I look now was face cancer. A tiny black mole appeared and from the sun? it turned black and very hard to the touch! Very painfull as well. But I was having ear aches before I noticed it. Which were not from ear aches!

Wow! "Getting to know you , getting to know all about you!" LOL

I had no idea about all that you have been through.  Wow, you are so strong to have made it through all of that and still to have a smile on your face.
