Things my BSO can do
I've got a new one: I can ride my Trek Pure Crank-Forward
Semi-Recumbent (pedal-powered wheelchair for short) without sticking
band-aids on my face.
I can even wear a niqab instead of my surgeon-style mask, because the
PPW doesn't go fast enough to blow it around. I haven't tried the
headband-style niqab yet, mostly because it's gauze and wouldn't keep
enough sun off my incisions. I should complete a double-layer linen
niqab tomorrow; perhaps I'll try it then. [I did; it works.]
Old news: I can back the PPW without dismounting. I can *walk* it
without dismounting, but it's more comfortable to walk beside it and
use it for a cane: the deep notch makes it possible to walk with the
handlebars in front of me.
I can ride it while wearing an ankle-length skirt -- but I have to
wear black pedal-pushers instead of frilly white drawers. I *could*
keep the skirt down, but it's more convenient to pull it up to my
I think. I haven't worn a skirt since April.
And, knock wood, I've always been healthy enough to walk to church.
(Maybe it's because I haven't been catching colds or anything.)
I can ride the PPW on a walkway. But I dare not ride *anything* on
the MUP, or walk either. It's only ten feet wide, nobody wears a
mask, and nobody steps to the side.
I did use the Heritage Trail the first time I went out without
stopping anywhere. When I got back, I undressed into the washing
machine and took a shower, and washed my hair in peroxide. Also, the
plague hadn't quite reached this county yet.
Found this hanging out in my drafts folder, can't think of anything to
Joy Beeson, U.S.A., mostly central Hoosier,
some Northern Indiana, Upstate New York, Florida, and Hawaii
