    T-O.

    Dang. Unfortunately, the house is not very wheelchair friendly. You have to be able to somehow get up 16 stairs to get to the main living level, then stairs to a top floor and stairs to a bottom floor to get off it.

    I suppose the main level would not be a problem once she reached it as its a pretty open floor plan.

    If you decide to come, don't worry about food, just about enjoying yourselves.

    I'll be happy to help with T-O's transporting his friend up and down the steps. Every Tuesday I do some volunteer work for a woman who has Fredrick's Ataxia and is in a wheel chair. I'm very familiar with transporting physically disabled people besides Ted I think we have some BIG fellows that will be in attendance and could probably do the honors on our own.:D

    Well, Ive missed this thread for awhile.. Id love to attend.. I would have a friend with me (she is in a wheelchair/can use a walker though) would that be a problem? Any type of accessibility issues? What could we bring to help the host (food)?

    Thanks,

    Josh

    OK...being a Superintendent for a National General Contractor has its advantages....I'll send some of my Carpenters right over and make the whole house ADA compliant. Need an elevator? I have Otis, Schindler and Dover on speed dial...LOL

    For some reason I don't think RT1 will like the house modified permanately. :p

    I never implied that it would be permanent. I also have a dedicated Demo team at my disposal. Then comes the Carpenters again to make minor adjustments to the Demo Team's offerings.

    Cool....

    Ted, want me to strap those bad boys to the roof of the Accord and save you a trip to Tejas?

    EDIT: Just read Anty's thread (hang in there bro'), and I'm down for the pre-PF golfing, too.
    More later,

    Sorry I haven't gotten back to this thread in quite some time; however, many things have changed.. For the lack of a better phrase, **** has hit the fan... I will not be able to make this event most likely.. Thank you all for offering to help in any way possible.. My friend is back in the hospital and is in very serious condition.. It is looking like they may have to do some more amputations.. Life in general right now is not very good.. I was down in the dumps just contemplating life over a few (15) beers and a couple (5-8) shots of Jager the other nite.. Guess what, P.I.!!! Talk about compounding problems.. Now it looks as if all the money I have been saving over the past 4 months for some major upgrades to the HT is all pissed away.. Im still on probation for my last DUI and they are trying to throw the book at me.. Its a GD shame you cant get drunk and EFFIN WALK home!!! WTF, ya know! They took my license for 11 years, and Ive walked the straight and narrow line for 3 years.. I go to a local bar (approx 3/4 of a mile from my house) walk there and walk back, and get arrested and go to jail.. Just walking! NOT STUMBLING, NOT ROWDY, NOT PISSING IN AN ALLEY!! JUEST FREAKING WALKIN!! My appreciation for law enforcement has hit and all-time low! "To protect and serve" MY GD ****! I apologize for the explicit language. Basically, polkfest, polk speakers, and anything that has to do with my one ture passion is on indefinite hold as I am trying to keep my precious untainted posterier outta the slammer! I hope you all have a great get together..

    Thanks for the gracious replies about my friends specific handicap needs. It was/ is very greatly appreciated!

    Thanks fellas... And just to let you all know.. Yes, I did have quite a bit to drink that day, however, I was there from about 10:30 a.m. - about 11 p.m. I ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner there.. Its not like I slammed all this in within a couple three hours.. I was impaired, but in no way out of control.. Actually, the police officer was all about searching me. I complied with him without a hitch.. I believe he thought he had scored on a drug bust becuase I took an alley to my backyard.. Of course, when he found nothing he threw whatever he could on me. Granted, I should have never been in a bar to begin with, and for the last few years I have not been, other than to bartend.. As a matter of fact, I havent even drank in months. This cop was at tops 21-22 years old, very rude, and was even a lil pushy. Some what chest bumping me and what not. If that makes sense.. I think he was trying to get me to hit him!? Nonetheless, thousands of my hard earned dollars will be spent on judicial BS instead of another set on Lsi15's and a 50+ inch HD plasma.. Almost makes me sick to my stomach! Thanks for the supporting words guys.. Pray for me plz.. I just dont know what I will do if I have to go to prison..

    We get it, you're a drunk, so are a lot of other people here. Want support? Go to a meeting or make another thread, that's all. Nothing more, nothing less - lets keep the 'event' threads on track.

    Cheers,

    Fortunately, I am a grown man, and I do not have to take undesiginated patrol duties to make myself feel important on an open forum. If you do not like what I have to say, or do not think that is is necissarily pertinent to the particular thread than I suggest you skip over my posts.. You and no one else will or will not tell me what I can and cannot do.. Im not too sure what is up your **** this particular day, but you can get over it.. I have and continue to be a constant contributor to this forum in all aspects. Just because you have X amount of posts in no way makes you superior to anyone else on this forum. This is an open forum to any and everyone that would like to contribute. And by you continuing to post after I stated that I would no longer post on this thread makes you no different than me. So I suggest you step down off that high horse your seem to think you are on and lighten up. If you had read this entire thread, you would realize that what I posted was related to this thread. If you have anything else you would like to say to me, plz Pm me.. I apologize to this thread and anyone "I" have offended.

    I'll take a little of the heat off Russ. Cut the crybaby act or move it someplace else as it has nothing to do with the topic at hand.
