No Regrets

I'm sorry I wasn't good enough.
I'm sorry I was too perfect. 
I'm sorry I was too sick.
I'm sorry I never told anyone.
I'm sorry no one believed me.
I'm sorry we grew apart.
I'm sorry I was condescending.
I'm sorry I made a mistake.
I'm sorry you couldn't forgive me.

But most of all,
I'm sorry I'm not really that sorry.

Wheels

I've got new wheels; he arrived today via UPS.  I shall name him Wally, and he shall be my new wheelchair. 

My old wheelchair had a few issues (really just a transport chair - the difference being transport chair has little wheels, new wheelchair has big wheels).  Like the brakes only working when they felt like it.  We may have worn out those brakes on the steep hills of San Francisco and Seattle.  Also there was the brake that would fall and drag against the wheel.  We tried fixing that but couldn't.  And then there was the issue of the little wheels - not so good for off-roading in grass or on gravel, like at a Renaissance Faire.  Rolly (the Rollstuhl - because we first used him in Germany, he got a German name, sort of) has been good and been many places (New Orleans and Colorado Springs are the two farthest away that I have yet to mention).  Now it is time to take Wally for a test drive at the EAA Air Venture - hopefully mostly paving, but hopefully much easier to push in grassy areas. 

Thanks, Rolly, for all the places we've trekked together.  Hopefully Wally will see many more wonderful places and help me do many wonderful things I wouldn't normally have the energy to do.
