Prompt for the Day: “Tourist”

The homebodies from the Daily Post group of Word Press want us to create works of art based in the word “Tourist” today.

Loved Playing Tourist

While I lived in Lombard (Chicago suburb) for 18 months and then when we moved to Colorado.  There were so many exciting places to explore.  Chicago offers many great museums and wonderful public transportation via the train systems.  Colorado lacked transportation services, but made up for it with the beautiful mountain scenery!

Used a wheelchair only when necessary while we lived in both places.  Glad I didn’t become confined to a wheelchair permanently until after we moved away from both places.  Here in MN, they have great transportation for the handicapped via a service known as Metro Mobility.  That service has a specially designed bus / van? that picks you up at the door you specify and delivers you to the front door of your designation.  If you request it, they return to take you back home after you finish your outing.

If you would like to contact me personally, all you have to do is fill out the form below.  I will read and respond to each submission.

Look forward to your comments and or suggestions!  This home body likes to stay in our safe handicap accessible home near my great neighbors!  Would like it even better if it was winter, but at least we have decent air conditioning.  Spring, Summer, and Fall tend to be too warm for my health!

Please Help Fight Hideous Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.
