  1. Hello All"

    This is a very old thread that I started a long, long time ago. However................................

    I would like to add this image file. After 30 yrs of being missing, this print of Bader and myself has resurfaced recently.............

    of course, I had hair then...................and a waist...................and two real human legs.

    My how time changes things!!!


    Hi Eddie

    Just made a rare visit don't come on here very often now nice to hear from you again we are a couple of the old members on here.

    I joined somewhere near the beginning when this forum first started one of the first 30 to join we were posting all the while just to keep the forum going we somtimes run out of thing's to say but now plenty of members.

    It still seems a good site to join.

    Well that's my visit over for a little while.

    Nice to still be a member and to see some good posting's good luck to you all.


  2. Hi

    Just thought i would have a look at the forum not been on here since Christmas.

    Don't know many on here now but it still seems successful.

    It was a great help for me when i came on here many years ago under 30 members then look how many now.

    Great to see it still helping people.

    Well until the next time Bye 4 now.

    Love Pat

  3. Hi

    Not been on here for a long time but i always like to check on here when i can.

    I don't know many of the members on here now but this is 7th Christmas i have seen on this site i was in the first 30 or so to join this site and still enjoy looking at it from time to time.

    This year's not been to bad apart from having a near to major heart attack then catching MRSA in hospital but gradually getting over that now.

    Still go to our local limb centre for our stepping out meeting's.

    So it was nice to comeback and say a few words.

    So i wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy new year and i will hope to visit a bit more regular next year god willing.

    Love Pat x

  4. Hi

    Just thought i would have a look in.

    Thing's seem just fine not been on here for about a year.

    Don't know many on here now but nice to see Cat is still around.

    Different from the old day's when just a few of us had to keep posting just to keep the site going nice to see so many members it's a joy to read so many posting's.

    Kind regards Pat.

  5. Hello

    Not been on here for a long while so thought i would see how things are.

    Nice to see a lot of new member's well new to me.

    I am one of the original 30 members that started on this forum before most of the moderators.

    So nice to see all these years later the site is still popular.

    I see Cat is still on here but not many of the originals well time goes on and i wish you all the best of luck and keep this site the best one for Amputee's.

    Kind regards Pat x

  6. Hi

    Yes me too I would post nearly every day once.

    Then more members came on here and gave me a rest at the beginning we needed all the post's we could get just to keep the forum going that was a few years ago

    I was in the first 30 then it was hard work thinking what to say to each other with out boring ourselves but as the years went on new members came and some very good posting's that gave me and other old members a rest.

    I now come on here to read post's now not posting myself the information given theses days on here is excellent keep posting I am still watching.

    Also I would like to welcome back some of the member's that have not posted for a long time Hi Ally & Mike.

    Kind regards Pat.

  7. Hi

    Each time I have flown I have no trouble and I am in my wheelchair with my leg on I just tell them about my leg and they have me put my arm's in the air and just go over me with a wand.

    But sometimes the wheelchair is push through and no alarm goes off.

    My husband walks through with loose Chang in is pocket and all hell is let loose.

    Just the luck of the draw.


  8. Hi

    Where as all the fun gone from this forum?.

    I have been a member over 4 years and thing's seem to be getting very serious with debates now.

    If we are offended by what someone may say then I think it's about time I left.

    We as Amputee's have to put up with a lot but I always try to see the funny side of thing's and in my case 2 Amputation in 28 day's was enough for me to see thing's that are important in life rather than make a fuss over a comment made on TV.


  9. Hi

    Wouldn't this idea be better to be organized through a group like step's that already have a back ground of organising event's like this.?

    As much as I can agree that it would be nice to meet some of the people I have made friends with on this forum it might a let down if only a few turned up for a conference.

    I think this would have to be a long term thinking matter before it happened.


  10. :angry:


    When I started this thread I didnt know what response I would get it's certainly surprised me how much response it got and mainly for the better.

    When I said that some of our friends were not posting and some had left under a veil of mystery I was hoping some would come back and they have.

    I only hope that a particular young lady who was a moderator will also come back one day.

    It's nice to see your comment's and I hope this forum goes from strength to strength.

    So may I wish you all a very happy New Year and may next year bring better times for you all.

    Best wishes Pat.

  11. Hi

    Who knows what the truth is about all these stories the photo's that were taken a few years ago must have been known about by the people concerned in publishing them it's just at this moment that they have become newsworthy.

    I try not to judge people solely on there past some people Chang for the better later in life.

    We should wait and see what the outcome is before we make our judgment


  12. You can't start a thread about people not being here without the reason they aren't here anymore coming up...

    I'd like to join you in wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year...

    Hi Oneblueleg.

    I take your point.

    History we cant change but the future we can let's try and make amends Please.

    Best wishes Pat.

  13. Hi

    Well this thread as brought some of the people that have been missing from this forum out again that's a good thing.

    But it's wrong to infer that they are squabbling it's that they are stating there opinions for not always posting let's all get back to posting when we think we having something that might be of use to help other's or we think of something funny then let's share it with each other.

    Thanks Nestudas for your PM. nice to hear from you I will get back in touch.

    So may I wish every member a Merry Christmas and may we all stay friends and go back to how we were before these little misunderstanding.

    Remember we all have our own thoughts and some we must keep to ourselves.

    Good luck to new and old members.

    Nice to see you back Muz and all the other member's that have come back.

    Best wishes Pat.

  14. Hi

    I don't seem to know many of the people on here now apart from Cat and a few others.

    No Muz and a lot of the one's that were always posting I see Cat as been promoted well done.

    I have seen a few changes some for the good and some not so good I was in the first few to join my membership number is in the low 30's without members like Muz the place don't seem the same no Eddie also the change in moderators we lost one of the best one's we had that young lady helped Lot's of people including myself shame she had to go.

    Then there was the two boy's M&M they helped to keep this site happy make some day's made us feel bright when we were not.

    Anyway I have had my say I will still visit every so often but it's not like it was a few month's ago.

    Best wishes Pat.

  15. Hi

    At my local limb centre there was a man in a wheelchair no leg's handcuffed to a prison officer waiting to go in for a check up his Prosthetic;s were in a plastic bag.

    If he wore them in prison I dont know but this guy was smiling at everybody and looking at his hand cuff's and laughing he was very friendly but he wasn't allowed to talk to anybody and when somebody spoke to him the officer moved him to the other end of the room.

    This guy had no chance of getting away.


  16. Hi Stephen.

    We stayed Sunny beach for two week's it's a nice place.

    The hotel we were at was very good we stayed in a disable friendly room roll in shower grab rail's high toilet etc wide door's as I am most of the time in my wheelchair I am AKA.

    Only thing Burgas Airport very poor long Wait's going in and coming out of Bulgaria.

    Airport staff not very friendly get over that and we had a good time in Bulgaria.

    All designer gear very cheap we went full inclusive did not need to spend much at all we were a family of 9 4 adult's and 5 children, children from 5 to 14 they were catered for.

    No drop kerb's pavement very poor but getting better so we were told.

    When you go into the resort sunny beach you go through check point only people living there and holiday maker's and people with work permit's can get past the check point's we were told that was to keep undesirables out of the resort as there is a like of crime in Bulgaria we felt safe there just dont go off the beaten track.

    Weather very good just right for the time we were there.

    Stephen if you want to know more send me a PM.

    Kind regards Pat.
