My Photo


  • a happy, ordinary, middle-aged, suburban woman who paints odd pictures, gardens in a straw hat, lives with the love of her life, is owned by one cat and the ghosts of several others, and walks a little funny 'cause she has a fake leg. She started this website because there's more to life than what we lose, and we need to let each other know what's possible, even if it's only a happy, ordinary life.

Too damn funny.

What if I just clip it like so?: ""People are looking out for you and are waiting to give you a leg..."

Could you actively ask for it?

Ron Sullivan

Wouldn't it be easier* for you to give them one?

Just askin'.

*for values of "easier" that don't include "less expensive"


Oh, Ron, you are so right! And all because of the miracle of velcro. (More to come on that topic shortly.)

The only problem is that I would have to take off my pants to do that, and no one wants to see that.


Oh, and Melissa, it may please you to know that someone already offered me a leg. My friend Karen was still working in the meat department of my store when my surgery was scheduled. We were having a special on Icelandic lamb at the time. She offered to set me up with a replacement leg from what we had in stock, but sadly, it just wasn't a good fit.

I have such good friends! (sniff)


Hahaha...that's funny.
A friend of mine organized a fundraiser for to help me with hospital bills, and he called the event "One Leg Up". Cracked me up.
