We had a great time countering the peaceniks in Fresno on Friday night.

Freepers present:

Jim, Sheila and Chris Robinson
JustAmy and Marissa
FriendAnn
Enterprise
Gracie1

The weather was crisp. Felt like the cold air was blowing down directly off the snow covered mountains. Great for FReeping! The peaceniks clocked out early, so we headed over to one of our favorite restaurants for some dinner and great pie. Yummy!

We missed those of our regulars who couldn't make it and hope to see you there next time.

To Bob J, Diotima, Syncro, the FRN Board of Directors and all who contributed for this wonderful gift:

Thank you all very much!!

The Bruno Turney Seat was installed in our van last week and delivered to us in time to try it out at the Fresno Support our Troops Rally. Works great! As you may know, it was getting very difficult for me to transfer in and out of the van. My legs are getting weaker and it's sometimes very difficult to transfer, especially when it's cold.

The new Turney Seat makes it a breeze (and it's fun too):

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

The chair looks great Jim. Our daughter has a platform lift on her van. She pushes a button on her remote control and the door opens and the lift lets down. She rolls her wheelchair onto the lift, locks in and pushes another button that lifts her up to floor level of the van. She just rolls over under the steering wheel, pushes another button that brings the lift in and shuts the door, and off she goes. She had to have one like that because she can't transfer very easily by herself. Anyway, I'm so glad that you are now better able to freep. Eagles up!

Looks GRATE Jim! They were supposed to call us when it went in as Sink was going to drive down and take pictures but it looks like you have it all in hand! Hope you like it!

BTW _ I'd like to put up a separate post for all the donors, if you don't mind.

FReepers be GREAT people, huh? Is it any wonder the Liberals are retreating in a dead run?

Wow, fantastic Jim!

Now my question is, how many times did Marissa con you into letting her ride it in and out of the van?...LOL

Bob thanks for getting the ball rolling on this.

It was an honor to be involved in this in the small way I was. It will make things so much easier for Jim, and also myself and ChrisRob when we drive JimRob and SheRob to various events and FR Chapters.

I had offered to drive to Fresno to take the FR Van to the shop to have the seat installed because at first it looked like it would have to be done in So. California.
But as it turned out it could be done in Fresno, and ChrisRob took it in one evening and got it done that way.

Thanks for posting the Thread acknowledging the people who graciously (and rapidly!) donated to this project.

For all of those of you that didn't get a chance to help on this project (the majority of the costs were donated in the first few hours of the notification), maybe we can get this made for RoboJimRob:


(Thanks to Echo Talon for designing this.)

Dr. Zoo, would you like to start the donations with a check from the Institute of Phenomonology?

JimR,
It does our hearts good to see you and how well the new seat works! It was, indeed, an honor to contribute.

I haven't been on in a while but I moved from San Francisco where I was active back down here to the valley. Can you ping me when gatherings in Fresno happen. I'd like to join you all! Great Pics!
