YES OF COURSE just give a rough idea when you will be coming.i had 5 missed calls today. i wonder who it was "unknown number". i only heard the last call and could not get there fast enough. it is usually something to do with medical, and i don't talk to them anyway.
yesterday a woman here separated my books. she left the art books and took the rest. yesterday i went past the recycling area and noticed a large computer screen. this one is a fair bit larger than my largest. i carried it about 20 yards then had to give up.it was too big to carry on my scooter. a youth from that neighbour family from el salvador about 14 came along. i asked him if he would watch over the screen while i went home to get my dolly.for five dollars he agreed then said he would rather carry it.
i drove home and he was already there. he offered to bring it inside. i only had $6 to give him.i found that it had shimmery line and a black bar in the middle of the screen.....useless,
i was sleepy and slept a couple of hours. i forgot to turn the screen off. just as well .when i tried it again it was perfect. i have joined it up with a laptop and then i put on the boom box and speakers, beautiful.it is in the spare room on the good computer desk ...also salvaged.
i have to solder two headphone wires tomorrow. i think i tripped on the headphones during one of my unsteady moments. two days ago i left the scooter to climb three steps to ring a neighbour's door bell. i stumbled but fell back on my scooter. i could have hit my head on a sharp brick step and i could be dead. there was no handrail,-.it is like an earthquake is happening or you are walking on the deck of a boat in heavy seas.
several months ago was the last time i was on the transit system.i tried to go up the escalator with my walker. on the way up i tripped on my walker and went down on my back , one shoe caught in the metal revolving teeth. two men stopped the escalator somehow and lifted me up.i was unhurt except for bruises.i was lucky not to lose a foot or more.
a similar thing happened to an old lady on the millenium line. she fell on her head and died the next day.
i am recovering from my three recent trips to hospital. i get a little home help...three hours a month total. but i am managing with frequent rests. better than the hospital.
i have plenty of bacon and eggs. you cook and please wash up afterwards. my back gets a pain bending over the sink.
