This morning I have decided to visit my Bowling friend in the old-aged home who lost his leg to gangrene last year. He has been up and about visiting the Bowling club on two occasions but felt it too tiresome to go for a long ride (wheelchair) in the mall and have a cuppa tea today. I am not a very keen Hospital/old age home/homes visiting person, they make me very depressed, but our visit is long overdue and I am sure he will enjoy some cheering up. (thats if I get it right) So here goes - My happy face ON! My good demure present! My tolerance for the things I dont like in place and away i go! Wish me luck. Have a great morning/evening. Leave your calling card.

@Inlemay Good. Is he adapting to life without his leg?

@jaboUK yes he is - and I can tell you that he has already ordered his wheels to start Lawn Bowling (special sleek wheelchair wheels) So it seems I shall become part of a paraplegic team as well - Isn't that just marvelous

you are too kind - I have to be pushed that way, not always easy

I know this was a while ago but hope the visit went well. These places can be very depressing. It was hard sometimes visiting my Mum as occasionally she would be upset about something.

I have been in a few that were rather nice, but most aren't

Good luck. When you put on that happy face you choose to focus on the positive, and that is great. I am sure he will appreciate seeing some friendly faces. Is gangrene common there?
