    I was fortunate to have a few days in Ft Lauderdale In April. HOWEVER, in my hometown airport a new thing...those with braces/artificial limbs had a new snafu! First time ever, was taken to a room off the security space with 2 women and had to actually drop my pants swab by prostesis so they could take a reading for explosives or whatnot. Still it was a first, but still irritated me. Hopefully they'll find the real folks who are carrying any contriban.bb

    I use both. I use the prosthesis for business/everyday use. But I also use crutches for sports, recreation, & some unusual "off" days.

    Nail Polish

    I've always wanted to know that too. Have yet to wear sandals. So, give me a shout if you find out.

    B) One addition to the reading list, "On the Ragged Edge of Drop Dead Gorgeous." Its a short book by Ivy Gunter a formal model. I think there might be a short story about her also in the John Sabolich book, " You're Not Alone." I'll have to check out the others!

    Hi Linda, I unfortunately am a below the hip amputee. And yeah!!!!! We have some nasty appliances. Did however come across a unique prosthetic company in the southern states(I'm a usa chick myself). They are innovative. Would be worth a call. If you want the #, drop me an email. Kind regards, Jill
