We enjoyed our first ever Fourth of July in the USA last week.
Taking a weeks holiday on the way home from the Society for Disability Studies annual conference in Orlando, Florida we got to experience some wonderful times with great people both in Orlando and LA.
In true form we didn’t miss the opportunity to “pimp” Mac’s wheelchair – he was well and truly ready to celebrate in style with the rest of the USA. A couple of flags some cut up plastic tablecloths woven to represent the USA flag on his wheels and his chair was right to go.
The exciting part was we actually got to participate IN the local parade with our friends and their friends who also had international visitors staying. We helped decorate a ’66 Ford pickup, decked ourselves out in flag shirts from Old Navy and sat back and enjoyed the ride.
