    two years later and it sucks again

    hmm a beach party huh? That sounds great. I will keep that option open. But hey you all will be proud of this. I drove through the accident site on my bike last week. I had to stop and regroup but it helped close a chapter in my book of life. And felt good to stop and say a prayer and thank my angel.

    An Ode On Being An Amputee

    excellent job
  7. life was good until 7/23/2007 had a good job a good wife and a nice house then BOOM some jerk hits me head on while on my harley and he had no insurance. my first thought was my wife would leave me cause who wants to be with a gimp. but she stood by my side through the whole thing. well anyway i went back to work a year later and again life was good had a good job good wife and a nice house. then on 7/23/2009 BOOM AGAIN! my wife left me for a man that has no job has no house and a old beat up mini van and lived in his sisters basement. so i ask now. what did i do wrong and she says "its not you its me" so i ask her "do you know what today is" she said "no" i proceed to tell her " two years ago today you almost lost me isn't it ironic that two years later to the day you have lost me" she started crying and i rode away! its was a very hard thing for me but i have moved on again. just wonder what July 23rd next year will bring?

    back on the horse

    i will post pics as soon as i get off this towboat. Only four more days then im off for 21 days. I havent done any mods to the bike. Im gonna put on some forward controls though. I have noticed that im alot more aware than i was before. Not that i wasnt aware to begin with. I have been around motorcycles all my life. I remember as a kid we would push start my fathers old honda and my brother mother father and i would all go for a ride at the same time. Lol

    How Long Off Work??

    i work on a towboat aka barges. I am a bka i was off work seven days shy of a year. I did this work prior to my amputation. my amp. Was due to a motorcycle accident. I was hit head on at 50 mph by a car. I had several injuries besides the amputation.

    what socket would be best for me

    thanks tigertatt i think i will stay with my suction socket then. Im gonna try the new liner thing. Guess i just assumed that all liners were the same. Well i better get back to work. Thanks again
  12. i am bka. I currently use a suction socket with an outer sleave to hold it on. My problam is i am very active at work with a lot of heavy lifting and walking. My limb sweats a lot and the sleave tends to slide down several times in a six hour shift. So if i got a socket with the pin lock do i still need a sleave? Or what would be a good socket to get? i go in to get fitted for a new socket in 13 days. Thank you for any and all imput.
