There was so much going on with getting this piece of equipment onto our deck in the 100° heat yesterday, that I am mortified that THE MOST IMPORTANT fact was overlooked when I hastily announced how thrilled we are with this new aspect to our lives.
This most wondrous piece of equipment was the generous gift of NOLA Boy’s brother, and we are beyond grateful for this fabulous opportunity for NOLA Boy to exercise in situ to his heart’s content. Excellent coordination was handled most expeditiously by our sister-in-law, who directed the operation from their end. What seemed like an easy thing in the beginning, turned out, like so many aspects of life, to be a lot more complicated than first imagined.
Thanks to the incredible hard work of four fabulous people, I’m happy to report that everything works perfectly, and there were three “Maiden Voyages” yesterday. Luckily there is sufficient lighting on the deck that a “Midnight Ride” may be possible in future.
As my hip replacement continues to improve, I hope to be able to spend some time on it myself – a bonus!
Now the hunt is on for a cover for it. Does anyone have any experience with a Colorado company called Equip, Inc.? They are a small company, and I would love to be able to support them in this difficult time for small businesses. They seem to have the most promising cover style, and they are made in Colorado Springs, which is a definite plus.
You can see their website here. Would love to have any feedback on the subject that you care to offer.
And, again, a big shout out to NOLA Boy’s brother and his wife for generously having made of all this happiness possible! ;-> We will take good care of it.
What a great thing!!
We are getting our exercise in similar and different ways. Suzanne is using a stair stepper and elliptical machine at least “2 miles” per day. I’m mowing the lawn (about 2 miles) twice per week and bike riding 20-40 miles per week in hilly terrain. I’m sure it is doing us good. I don’t feel it much, though I’ve lost a little weight, but Suzanne definitely notices the benefit in her joints and muscles.
Other than that, were all about the same.
What a great time you had as a family bringing this all together. Life is the very best when you share it with others.
