Roll with me


So the other day I cracked my frame of my wheelchair. Thank goodness the company that makes my chair has a lifetime warranty on their frames. They are located fairly close to us, so we were able to take it there for a quick weld. They are making me a new frame to replace this one also. I've had this particular one for about 5 years and am due for a new one anyways. I'm going ahead with letting them replace my present chair, but will be ordering a brand new one soon. The one I have now is a Colours Spazz and the new chair will be a Colours Razorblade. They are great chairs and just love their way of thinking and being. If you check it out at Colours you will understand what I mean. Also they have one of the most insane tricks done in a wheelchair you've ever seen. These chairs are not cheap, but I look at it this way...I have spent everyday for the last 5 years in this chair. It has taken me so many miles and different places that I could never had gone with me hobbling along, it is so worth every dime. Actually, last couple times Muscular Dystrophy has bought me my chair. Yes, Jerry Lewis does really does help kids and adults with MD. And yes, I am a Jerry's kid. :) Wonder how many of them have done an ISM? :)

Those videos were worth a thousand words. It is amazing what people can do if they put there minds to it.
You are an amazing young woman. Keep your great attitude.
Keep your artwork coming.

When you sit and think about it, a chair that's sat in continually, any chair, would need repair, replacement or something done to it. Yours has given you great mileage. As they say, you get what you pay for.
