I have driven the car a bit in the past few months, but yesterday we tried something different -- additional. I came out of the house, not in the wheelchair, but using my walker. Unlocked the car, put the walker in the back seat, and then drove over to the library.

Typically Cliff has taken the scooter out of the van, and brought it to me. Yesterday I climbed out of the car, retrieved the walker, hobbled to the back, and unloaded the scooter -- all on my own! Cliff was watching me carefully, but even after I returned, put the scooter back, and closed the deck (that was the hardest part), I did it all without falling down! Ta Da!

* As you grow older, your secrets are safe with your friends because they can’t remember them, either.

* I would be unstoppable -- if I could just get started.


  1. Good going, but it's nice to have some back-up.

  2. Mobility is a wonderful thing, whether it's by self or with help.

  3. Yay!!!! Freedom!!!!

    I received your surprise! Oscar thinks it's the same recording his Dad had, and we both love it, thank you so much! :-}
