LINDA STEVENS, RN, CHECKS IN
Hi everybody, Happy New Year!
I love hearing from old friends! Because of my physical disabilities, my activities are limited butI always seem to find things to do. I'm still busy with my genealogical research. I always get these crazy ideas. Several years ago I decided I wanted to learn to play the bass guitar and so taught myself. This year I decided that I wanted to learn to play the drums! Fortunately, the drum shop is right down the street from me. I bought a starter set of drums and then traded up to a better set. You would really get a kick out of the expressions on the faces of the young kids waiting for their lessons when this old chick comes walking out of the practice room. I told my instructor that if I keep up the lessons that they are going to have to add a handicap entrance for old people :D I really enjoy it. Now if just had an extra arm and leg. Maybe the lessons would be easier! I have a breeding pair of canaries, although they have only produced 1 live chick. Then they decided that they wouldn't feed him. So rather than letting him die, I started feeding him every 2 hours for weeks. He turned out to be an amazing, fun little guy. I can't bare to keep him in his cage, so he pretty much has the free run of the house! Here is little Eddie on DAY 1.
Wonder where his name came from, he was born on my dad's birthday and yes, my dad's name is Edward.
The other thing I decided to do was learn American Sign Language. I'm doing well.
Have a great year everybody!
