A New Ride

When it comes to wheels, you have your Mercedes Benz E350. Or you have your Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet. Then there is the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4. Well, these car companies have nothing on my brother's Fuze T50.

My brother Larry has been patiently waiting for his new ride. His old wheelchair had definitely seen it's better days. It was tired and worn. When the call came that his new wheelchair was ready for delivery, I don't know who was more excited. Larry or his family.

When the delivery van pulled up on the curb, we all waited with baited breath. The wheelchair was brought into the house and everything was put in place for the transfer from the old chair to the new. When my brother was placed in his new chair, it fit him like a glove. The technician went over all the details of the chair, but my brother was having none of it. He wanted to ride his new ride. :-)

Doesn't he look handsome? Here he is ready to break speed records and see the world. And check out that cup holder. I want one of those! :-) He says, "That cup holder is a life saver!". Do not mess with his cup holder. lol!

He spent the weekend getting used to it. As with most new models, there are bugs to get out. But it's all good. :-)

Here is hoping that wherever life takes you, you can get there on a smooth ride.

Thanks for looking in!
