Hi Stumped how is your day going so far! I also am a LBK going on 3 years now. Due to a congential problem. Hope your coming along ok. I see you only had your amputation in January. How is the swollen going. I shrank down fast. But it took me almost 2 1/2 years to be completly down. I had many sockets because of it. I still hate the shrinkers! to tight. You take care and I'll try yo log on later! :)

Hey Stumped, North Carolina huh, I LOVE that state! I'm not too far north of you in South West Ohio.

How was the mother's day gathering? I relate -- my extended family gets a bit intense and insane at times! :blink:

One of my favorite (stupid) jokes: A three legged dog walks into a saloon. He looks around and says, "I'm looking for the man who shot my pa." (OK, you probably only "get" this joke if you've watched too many westerns in the USA!)

Welcome aboard!

Mornin' Jim T.!

Good Morning right back to you

Sorry for the delay, but every now and then my wife reminds me that I am supposed to be working on this computer also. <_< Nicely of course.

I see that you are fitting right in with everyone here - but then, I knew you would.

I know things like that. :blink:

Hey Bear!

I'm doing good today, but I REALLY wish the sun would come out! We've had a week of very cool and rainy weather! I want to go back outside and play in the dirt! :D

Are you doing ok with your leg now? How is all that going? I'm getting fitted again tomorrow with test socket #3, trying to make a definitive #2 socket that will be my leg for awhile. I hope it is a good fit! Right now I've got on 18 ply of socks!! I can still use it, but I think a great fitting socket will make a big difference!

Hi Stumped, :D

a late, but none the less HEARTY WELCOME FROM GERMANY [of all countries]!

Like Bearlover, I'm a dog nut, too.

Take care!

God Bless!
