    Just wondering if you are one, the other, or both. Any which way...

    All the best,

    Thanks for the offer, Jim. I considered doing that on the 56 year anniversary when I realized the implications. Changing it would disconnect me from earlier posts and references. I decided to stay with what everybody had come to recognize. Besides, it is kind of like staying 39 years old. lol The truth is that I will become an Oxygenarian on November 22.
    Only your name would change, wouldn't be a new account.

    Ever think of wiring a book about your life experiences and how you dealt with them? I am sure you have a wealth of knowledge living with a spinal cord injury to share.
