Old firecrackers are not duds.

Yes, spent fourth of July with one of my favorite people, friend, prior coworkers for over 20 years, supporter, confidant and ...sister. We are seniors, spirited, animated and far from
ready for the rocking chair. No duds here.
We drank wine, ate a beautiful home cooked meal modified to fit my program. not picnic food, saw 2 great movies, on this 95 degree day it was comforting and filled with laughter.
Personal goal, I was able to drive to her home, walk the 120 plus feet into her home by walker and navigate within her home, bathroom,etc and navigate back out 8 hours later. No wheelchair used today at all. —- I felt like I was out of prison.
This is the first time I have been inside her home in 5 years. It is a century plus home with very narrow doors and my wide chair was not a fit. We cried.
Yes it was independence day for me.
