    Thumbs up 1 year anniversary

    1 year yesterday (May 28th)... Don fell 30 feet from a ladder while trimming a tree in our back yard.... We went to a party yesterday to celebrate life yesterday.

    Don has come a long way! When he first came home from rehab.... wellllll it was ugly... but now he is self-sufficient... he is healthy. He went back to work at Lockheed-Martin in November 2005. He was 60 years old when he was injured so the fact that he went back to work is pretty impressive.

    He is in the process of having friends help him build a bridge into the veggie garden so he can take of the garden... what a guy!

    We count our blessings...

    Thanks to all on this list who have been there to give support and answer my questions!

    Congrats on the 1 year progress! My grandfather was a farmer. When he left the midwest and lived in California with a "regular" job, he always had a big garden in his yard. When he got older and was in a wheelchair we put in a lot of raised beds for him to garden in. It truly was a joy for him.

    me and my brother bought a 150 acre farm in nicaragua last year, i cannot wait to get back to my garden, everything grows there so well, including pests. the problem for me is the hour long hike thru the jungle to get to it. i need an ox-cart i guess,
    Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened
