ON THE ROAD

Found a PC to use. (German keyboards are not the same as our Qwerty oneshence it isn`t so easy to type especially when the spell chaeck want sto correct in German!) I am in Mecure Airport Hotel in Stuttgart , Germany. Today has been cold and snow is forecast for the next few days here and where we are headed. Yesterday was sunny and warm.

Last night in Luxembourg we could only find two restaurants that were wheechair accesible!!!! The first one we went in had curtains in a semi circle over doorway but a slope in so we wne tin only for me to almost hit a large post that was hidden by the curtain. Then Daniel jammed as the place was not accessible at all, too crowded. People were not interested in either helping or getting out of the way. In fact, those coming in were pushing past me. So I got flustered, and embarrassed andthe more I did the more I could not control Daniel. So John gave me my sticks, I got up and out whilst he manhandled Daniel out. Urgh!

The next restaurant was totally different. We were greeted at the door by a really nice waiter, about 30 I guess. Camp as tits and funny, cute and quite disarming. He took charge, moved a table and without needing to be told, he allowed me to manouver into palce with my back toward the wall so I could see all in front of me. I HATE having my back facing anywhere. Service continued to be excellent.

Unfortunately, the food, although very tasty, was poncy Neuvelle Cuisine. In other words it looked pretty, presented artfully but would not have satisfied one of my dogs. I HATE that!

Tonight I think we are going out to the SI Centre where there many restaurants. This Centre is Stuttgarts IN PLACE it would seem.

Today has been very pleasant. We drove half the distance on back roads thru lots of beautiful villages etc. Trouble is being Sunday nothing was open so we had to get back on the Aurtobahn in order to find a place to eat at a service station.

I can feel my innards getting motivated. I hope so as thay have not moved since Tuesday. Side effct of the Morphine I fear, despite only taking one dose per day. Yes, I am keeping myself well medicated with painkillers, thank you but not with Ms Morhpia. She is being kept back for special ocassions.

Dawn, my common as muck friend who I love dearly , made me laugh yet again. She noted that I cannot use my right arm much and I told her that Elizabeth had diagnosed that as something I cannot racall. Dawn said `f***ed shoulder?` I guess that will do!

Oh and the presription person f**ed up! She only gave me one third of my heart meds. As didn`t know this until Friday night, it was either come on the holiday without or stay at home. I have juggeld so that some days I can have a full dose and others only a third. If I stop Twittering you`ll know this didn`t work out too well.......
