Thread: Today's my Unhappy Anniversary!

  1. #1

    Today's my Unhappy Anniversary!

    It's been 62 years of chair-life since Polio struck in 1949. I jokingly refer to today as my unhappy anniversary, but it's far from "unhappy". I have had a wonderful life and my best wishes to you for the same.
    Between my husband and I we have one hundred and three years of wheelchair living.

    Congratulations (or uncongratulations) on a long happy life. May you have many more unhappy anniversaries and keep posting.

    Have a graet day.

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Have a good day however you look at it Triumph. There should be a new word invented for these bittersweet anniversary dates.
    My cousin told my husband "Happy anniversary that you survived, but sucks you got hurt day."
    103 years of wc life! THAT is an accomplishment. and deserves congratulations.

    I make up 41 of those 103 years and Triumph is most definitely my "better half". She taught me how to get up those high curbs in NYC when we met in 1972.

    Well, congratulations to both of you....that is really remarkable.

    So many people get plaudits on the news for their "achievements".....but you guys blow them all away. Very impressive
