When I was in high school I took some apptitude test that said I should stay away from any occupation that required mechanical skills. My mother, fully aware of my limited abilities in that area, got a big kick out of those test results and put them up on our refrigerator, I assume to remind her never to let me work on the family car. So, knowing that, I'll just let you guess how long it took me to put this wheelchair together and whether I might have used language not entirely suitable for a children's author. Doris has very weak back legs so I'm hoping this will give her a little bit more mobility around the house. But she's really kind of a miracle. She came to me with a bad heart and then she developed kidney disease, two things that are very hard to treat at the same time. About four months ago her test results were so bad our vet wasn't sure she'd make it through the week. But here she is, doing great and handing whatever life throws at her, including a poorly assembled wheelchair. #goodattitudepoorapptitude

Explaining John Henry's name: When I was in 4th grade a new kid transferred to my elementary school named Ronnie. His family had a lot of money but that kind of thing doesn't set up barriers when you're only 10. We found out we had the same sense of humor and we quickly bonded. I wanted to call him after school to see about getting together that afternoon. My exact words were, "Hey do you have a phone?" His exact response was, "We have several." I thought it was an odd response for a 10 year old kid but I called him anyway and we became best friends for the next 40 plus years. At that time he had a little white pomeranian dog named John Henry. I always thought that was such a cool, strong name for a little, spunky dog. My friend Ronnie passed away from cancer almost 2 years ago and naming this rescue after his childhood dog felt like a nice way to think about him again, and at the same time honor Englebert, who will never truly leave my side. Englebert's name by the way, before I adopted him was Henry. It just all seems to fit. #whatsinaname Enoch and John Henry
