Journey to the Land of Windmills

We have all seen pictures of windmills, often with fields of tulips. It seems so exotic, so foreign. This summer my family got together in The Netherlands. That is no small feat, considering Sandy and I live in Florida whilst our son and daughter-in-law live in faraway Taiwan. Meet up we did, and we had a wonderful time.

Over the next few days I’ll be sharing some of our experiences and talking about getting from place to place in my wheelchair on streets built in the 14th century.

I’ll award kudos and, of course, toss a few brickbats. ūüė≥ ¬†What fun is it without a few brickbats!?!

Please check back soon. This app is no longer picture friendly, so I’ll have to dust off the old computer (remember those?) and get creative. Thanks for stopping by.

If there is anything specific you want to hear about or have questions, please leave a comment.


Stills from the video

Sandy and I have been in The Netherlands. Among the things we intended to accomplish before leaving was to put up a few still shots from the National MS Society’s video.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you will look for some upcoming pictures from The Netherlands along with some Kudos and Brickbats about things we encountered on our trip. Soon, I promise.

Sandy somewhat stole the show with her sincerity and insightful comments about MS and the family.
George leg stretch
Spasticity is a major problem for me. Here my physical therapist, Patty, is starting our session with some serious stretching.
George Sandy PT in pool
There is a lot going on in this picture. Sandy and I are in our ¬†pool doing an upper body, aerobic exercise. Right behind me is the accessibility feature of the pool. I slide from wheelchair to block, then lower myself down the steps¬†into the pool. You might notice the steps actually go down into the pool. I’m sitting on one.

It’s late in the day. They are filming elsewhere, and I decided to catch up with some of my MS Peers on MS Connection. One of the photographers captured me engrossed in someone’s discussion.
