Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!

The view is much better at 3 feet than it is at 30,000 feet!

Bill you've also given me some great information about past trains here in Atlanta.  Thank you, and I am glad to hear you are feeling better.  Enjoy your new surroundings with a view of the tracks!  - Chris J

I AM BACK

 

First, thanks, for the kind words and prayers.

 

I was struck by two kinds of flu and this caused the parkinson medicine to lose its worth..

 

I fell and was too weak to get up.- I lay in my apartment saying HELP for SEVEN HOURS.

 

 

 

I was taken to a hospital first then a rehab center.

 

No way did I go back  to my home of 35 years after all that ordeal yelling HELP for seven hours.

 

Instead I am  in a nice assisted living place behind Lenox Mall..

 

NS freigthts, the Crescent and  both north south route MARTA  trains are about one eighth  of a mile ffrom my window

Aww, Bill. I'm sorry to hear you laid there for so long. :( I'm glad someone finally helped you.

 

Hooray for being only 1/8-mile from the trains. :) I hope you're all settled in and enjoying your new place. Can you see the trains in addition to hearing them?

My grandmother had a similar thing happen to her a few months back. My legally-blind and half-deaf grandfather was at the other end of the house and didn't hear her and didn't wander back that way for a few hours.

Scary stuff. Glad you're somewhere that won't happen again.

Bill,

 

Glad to see you back on-line. I know how I felt with my recent 2 day hospital stay, I was glad to get back to the cyber world.

Wishing  you well,

Welcome back Bill.  We surely missed you.  Hopefully you will recover to the point of riding the rails again. Hope to see you at the station the next time I travel on the Crescent.
