    Checking in, 41 years post SCI. I have been here for all versions of Cando, Spinewire, and CC.

    I drifted over from New Mobility board years ago but didn't become very active until 2001-2002 when I broke both legs in a forward fall, (lousy wheelchair fit) hardware in leg, etc. I had to stop working full time but fortunately had private LTD. Slowing down a bit with the years but still hanging in there. Good family and friends keep it all worthwhile.

    Miss some of the MIA's and those who have passed mentioned by others earlier in thread .

    CC has been a wealth of information and a lot of good folks.

      Now Patrick, don’t go foisting your fantasies off on poor Cherry. I recall that she was not terribly shy, but she was very very nice and just the right degree of wholesome.

      I’m hesitant to join our Facebook group because that is my other life, and while I know there’s no real anonymity anymore, I’ve had some creepy experiences here that I’m not eager to invite into my local world, peopled mostly by high school friends. Who knows you better or loves you more than the people who saw the extra 15 pounds, awkward class office campaigns, and failed attempt at Farrah Fawcett hairstyles? I think I forget to post what I wrote about my delightful reunion this summer. May be coming soon…

      So I’m just going to keep trying to beckon people out of the shadows as they occur to me.

      Jen Jen – did I see you on TV? Did you get elected to office somewhere down there in the Southwest?

          Lol, you are so funny Random. There was a woman here who was a porn actress. She wasn't here long as I recall.

          Yes, the awkward reunions... you described them really well. I like seeing the old jocks all fat and mostly bald who are living in a van down by the river. And the the shy quiet ones who are remade with the big bucks their husbands made. Cass was a real sweetheart. I trust she is well. I always love reading your posts.... when you post lol.

            He's on Facebook now and then. He started a group a few years ago. I'll see if it's still in operation.

                      Check things out here quite often, don't post often enough to be missed but I appreciate the forums here.

I quickly found friends that enlivened my life on here in immense ways (even the people I argued with and had some ugly words with I still look back and think fondly of?I forgive easily, just my nature).

                                I read through some of the old posts and laugh at the good zingers we threw to one another and all the things we discussed. Mon dieu !

                                I know many have passed on and are no longer with us, and I keep them in my heart. Others maybe don?t come back here much at all because of their lives or whatever reasons they may have had. I was just wondering who is still alive and around living the best they can. I hope everyone is as happy as they can be.

                                Yes, I realize I?m more sentimental than many; the Portuguese have a word for it: Saudade; I?m stricken with it for life.
                                Still here as well...check in approximately once every two weeks. I'll "swing" through as a guest every now and again.
