Hello All,

My name is Paula and I am a LBK and a RTMA. I was on the forum a good long time ago but then driffted away and now from the nagging of Neal I am back. But happily so. I do attend the ACA conventions and this last one was one of the best. I do plan on going back next year, but I believe next year I will go and see a bit of Hotlanta. I did do the 5K but had to walk a good deal, my running leg needed my CP to adjust it. Next year I do hope to jog it all the way. Hopefully they will pick a better course.

I am from VA, but I was raised in NJ and have NO intention of going back north. My husband is very southern and we will move to the south once he decides what he wants to be when he grows up. :-). Right now he is serving in the military in Kosovo but he has been to the desert as well.

I am a sign language interpreter for 25+ years and still love my work. No I do not have Deaf parents and or sibling I just fell in love with ASL and just kept plugging away until I went to interpreter training. Way back then it was for 8 months, now it is 4 years. Talk about baptisim by fire!

Ok Neal I have posted so now you must answer back.

Love to all

Paula

So you finally went through with it? I was ready to give up on you. Nag, Nag, Nag!!!!

Glad to have you here.

RTMA= Right transmetatarsal amputee.........She has no toes on her right foot as well as bk left leg. I've seen this gal run and she does a darn good job. She is in the pics from 2006 of me learning how to run. Paula and I learned at the same time from Dr. Bob Gailey.

G'day Paula and welcome back to the Forum.

We had the pleasure to meet you, briefly, in Min. at the Conference.

Thanks Neal for nagging Paula to drop back in here, I know we can all learn from her as she is an excellent runner. :D
