ok everybody--a little gallows humor here---don't get mad at me---just for funny!~!
    So i was trying to imagine a group of us skipping rope in wheelchairs! HA! Put it on you-tube---=-any "trick" videographers out there?  om
A prisoner, tied down in a cage,could not move an inch. To keep himself fit, he evolved out a number of exercise and started doing it mentally. When he could free himself, he was in a good shape to fight against his opponent.Of course he was the hero of a novel.Fantasizing skipping a rope is not that difficult.
I know we can't do every thing we read. However, reading some good devices, keep us in a steady momentum of progress and self healing.A visitor from other groups may take the advantage of this reminder.I know it is quite far fetched. However let us take a chance.
