Cool hi I'm Mike

Hi Im Mike Rayl...
I am a pal. My condition seems to have stablized. I live at La Veta healthcare center, a nursing home.
I have a quickee electric wheelchair and i go out to starbucks, the mall, in it... When I came here 4 years ago I thought it was the begining of the end of my life... wrong. It was the beginning of a new wonderful life filled with love... I met the love of my life here. Her name is Marion, she is a 90 year old dynamo, im 52... I am very happy and I am greatful to God for all I have... I am the proud father of 2 grown children, Steven and Shellee. Ive been married twice.

Exclamation Arnold...

I met Arnold in Mammoth Lakes, Ca in the 70's. I found him an alright guy, very warm... He was there to snow ski. I met Jerry Brown, Ronald Reagan, Gray Davis too, so I have met 4 governors of California... And 2 U.S. Presidents, Bill Clinton and Reagan...

Smile Welcome

Hi Mike -

Nice to meet you. It sounds like you've gotten yourself well situated. When I think of going to a nursing home I get scared but you make it sound like fun. Looking forward to your contributions to the forum.

How did you come to meet all those famous politicians?

Liz
