Say “OO-oo”—it’s a child’s imitation of a cuckoo clock.

After over a year of trying to get a power wheelchair, Wendi finally got one on August 10, 2022, paid for by Medicaid. During all that time, her ability to walk worsened considerably, making it easier for them to approve the chair.
Now we needed a mobility van, with a wheelchair ramp, to accommodate the new chair. I had to take money from my IRA to do this because insurance doesn’t cover it. We were able to order one through A&J Mobility, but it wouldn’t arrive until September 13; meanwhile, our old 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan broke down, so we had no working vehicle from August 20 until the new van arrived.
A guy bought the old van for salvage on September 24 but was unable to get it moved until September 27.
Oo’s Picture Place is fully up to date for now. All of the original pictures (2004 and earlier) have finally been restored, and I’ve added photos from 2020, 2021, and 2022. There probably won’t be very much from any years that are missing, but even those won’t be posted for some time.
Oo’s Writings has been caught up since April 21 of this year. Find the latest additions at the Old “News” Posts page.
I’ve added a new link to an old site, at the bottom of the Laughs cover page. Since most people will never spot it, I’ve decided to post it here too:
Weird “oo” site (was featured in USA Today on November 17, 1998)
