Raises Bat

I've just noticed that this would be the one hundredth post on this blog and couldn't resist getting back to say so. It's remarkable how much more time I have on my hands when I'm on the moby dick. Doubtless posts will become rare again when I'm no longer the limp master. And, I have become the limp master.

I can now hop and stop without falling over. I can even hop with a cup of tea in my hands - riding the slosh as it were. I can walk on my heels or more correctly, my heel. I can negotiate stairs with a single crutch and shuffle myself down them on my backside using my crutch like a canooist's paddle, digging it in to steer the bend.

I've developed some pretty snazzy kitchen techniques using the crutch an extended arm: opening cupboards, prodding pedal bins open. As a gadget I might even miss it. But not that much.

Happy blogging century, even if it does find you in reduced circumstances.

Learning to walk like a one-legged man - see, that's one thing you've accomplished already in 2006.
