Amy Purdy, keynote speaker, amputee, snowboarder! I had the distinct pleasure of hearing Amy Purdy at the Professional Photographers of America Convention, in Atlanta, Georgia, where she was the keynote speaker. I still had my leg at that time, but after a lifetime of pain and dealing with my disability, her story touched my heart. Now, as
I started my blog as a hobby! It would be, a way to share my photos with the world and to share experiences of my travels. But, it has become so much more than that to me. In January of 2016, I had my left leg amputated below the knee. I have to say; having
Need a little help or inspiration? Amputee Support Groups… I know that there are others out there, like me, who sometimes feel alone and don’t know where to turn. Did you know that there are free resources for education and amputee support on Facebook? Well, now you do! I know that I will barely scratch
Wild Sassa? Denise and I are, wanders. We love to take drives to nowhere and just explore. On our recent excursion to The Freezer with Denise’s mother, we decided to take the “scenic route” home. We discovered a few things in Homosassa that I thought we could share with you. The first, Wild Sassa Food Trailer! (The second,
Denise loves the beach But, since my amputation and before DryPro, our waterfront activities were limited to drives along the coast. Before my amputation, it was difficult for me to walk in the sand.

“While visiting The Ringling you are welcome to explore the Bayfront Gardens at your leisure. As awe-inspiring as any work of art, The Ringling Bayfront Gardens are a living treasure.

The echoes from the past where the Circus King finally rests in the Secret Garden.”
Laughter is an instant vacation!

How would I know? I don’t speak owl! “who0” am I kidding your just lucky I didn’t start singing… (ok, now you made me do it!) “who, who are you?”
