What is the absolute best purchase you have made for yourself?
September 3, 2007 2:59pm CST
I know it can be a house or car, but I'm thinking along the lines of small low cost items such as maybe a book that changed your thinking on things, or a ticket to a museum and now you are a painter....For myself it was a book titled "Voluntary Simplicity", which led me back to college, to take classes in the subject of my passion and what I should've done in the first place. What the book did was help me remove the clutter in my life and look at what really mattered.

This is probably really going to shock you but here goes. A new leg. That's what I said. A new leg. I lost my right leg below the knee in an accident some years ago. Since then I've had a real basic leg. What I used to call my peg leg. It did it's job though. When it came to walking it was fine but beyond that it was a lame duck. About a year and a half ago I decided to splurge. My insurance is great. I only paid 10% of the cost. I got a leg with a foot that flexes both left & right, forward & back. I also have a fully functional ankle that swivels. So you can just imagine the difference between the two and the sort of activities I can now do. The only thing I wish there was but doesn't exist yet is a fully waterproof leg. That's my best purchase to date. ‹(°¿°)›

Thanks for the vote funnycole. Thanks for the sentiment. No need for sorry though. It's just another chapter in my full life. Sh*t happens and we live on. I'm like your father in as much as I feel my foot all the time. After all the nerves are still there. Pain is something we just deal with and in my case don't think much about unless it's so bad I have to take my leg off to rest. ‹(°¿°)›
