Purple horn…

When I first began to walk again (after 2 1/2 years in a power chair) I was vain about wearing shorts, as i have to wear AFOs all of the time. So to most people, I was a middle-aged person who carried a cane. Most probably thought I had either had a hip or knee replacement, or was waiting for one. Once I began to wear shorts or capris, then it made others realize that I did have some kind of permanent & more serious disability. I wear shorts now whenever I can, even though I live in northern MN! There is a saying that you know you are from MN if you have worn a winter jacket with shorts (a joke on how cold our summers can be.) Well, that is me!
