Not much to report here.
I did get out into the shop and did some clean up of the dirt on the floor from the seat.
On a sadder note. We rehomed my shop buddy Duke today.
Mrs T cant handle him on a lead and im too weak and slow.
He needs a more active owner than we can be.
He is a damn fine dog.😔

Sorry to hear about rehoming your dog. You're a good man to realize it and let him go.

That had to be extremely tough when he left. Had to drop off the best I've ever had to be put down for heart worms many years back. Those are not good times.

Keep pushing forward Torchie. You got this.

Thanks gang. A tough one for sure.
It what was best for him and us. Sure doesn’t make it any easier though.
Off to the leg store for my first casting towards a new leg.

Default And now for something different.....

Thought you guys might find it interesting to see how a fake leg is built.
This is the new liner I will be uaing. I used this system when I had my first leg built.
A threaded stud goes into the bottom of the liner. You put the stump into the socket and press down. You will hear the stud click into place and lock in.
Lots of measuring and markings on the plastic bag over the new liner.
The tech then puts a thin cast and the marks are trnsfered into the cast.
He will fill the cast with silicone and have a perfect version of my stump.
Back next week for the test socket fitting.
Keep on keeping on....
