Wheelchair Race!

Oh my, I've been so busy and so much you-know-what going on, with the contractor winding down on the renovations and all sorts of glitches with that, plus the usual junk, plus other junk, including a sick kitty, and still trying to unpack and set this house right  --  I haven't had time to blog.

But here's a quickie.  Chris finally moved into the apartment in back this week -- (lots of glitches there too --) Then Chris challenged Bob to a wheelchair race!  Here's some pics:

And they're off! Down our alley --- 

Chris takes the lead ---

Bob had to stop and change his speed mode as Chris left him in the dust --- she actually turned around, so he could catch up....  

Whoo hooo! Bob takes the lead!

And I have to say, Chris was more freaking out about Bob's driving abilities than I usually am -- shouting to Bob to "watch the curb!"  or "watch the dip!" or  "WATCH THAT TREE!!!" ...  Yikes -- She made me a nervous wreck....

But we reach our destination, an estate sale six blocks away.  OK - I am, following behind on foot, trying to keep up, sweaty, nervous and exhausted! Phew!

 Bob and I bought an old oak rocking chair at that sale, for $8, (needs a seat), and I carried it home. We must've looked pretty strange, on the way back, two disabled folks on power wheelchairs and one able bodied woman, running behind them, carrying a fixer-upper rocking chair! Oh my, what do the neighbors think?
