Still Going Strong

Our son, who is going to medical school volunteers 2 days a week at what is now La Rabida Children's Hospital. It is now a facility for children with lifelong acute conditions requiring extended care.

Hand-powered trike

My friend's daughter who's wheelchair-bound has a hand-powered trike, and has competed in a few bike races with it. Hers looks more like a recumbent bicycle, though.

Interesting to see they've been around a while.

Happy Thanksgiving Day

to my fellow Canadians.
