A few of you will remember me from when I was active on LJ before my stroke. A lot has happened since my stroke. Here is a brief overview.
We sold our large house in the country and moved to a condo in town. I sold many of my bigger tools (table saw, lathe, jointer, large band saw. large drill press and drum sander). I retained enough stuff to do woodworking on a smaller scale. I will rely on my Shopsmith for many functions. I also kept my planner, tabletop drill press, miter saw, router table and most hand tools.
On the personal side, I reacquired the ability to drive legally and safely. I spend a lot of warm weather time riding a customized bike. It is a recumbent e-trike. I sold most of my farming toys but kept one tractor and plow. I have not driven my tractor since my stroke but hope to this spring.
Most importantly – I am still enjoying life and I am incredibly grateful for a loving, supportive and understanding wife.
