Caregiving: aces & kings

Friday night we enjoyed a one man lollapalooza so talented he has to label himself with the multiple personality stage name “Buc Hill Aces”. We are referring to our friend and entertainer Brian Lockman who we visited at the Crimson Frog Coffeehouse in Camp Hill, PA.


Saturday Patti, myself, and Patti’s parents went to watch the “sport of kings” or Polo. Our Central Penn Chapter of National MS Society was sponsoring its second annual MS Polo Match.


None of us had ever been to a polo match. (I wonder if Homeland Security is aware the game began as a training exercise for ancient Iranian cavalry? <grin>) … Anyway you are invited to join us below for three minutes as we ‘discover’ polo in Mechanicsburg, PA.

I also MUST take a moment to thank “Rachael” with the Central Penn Chapter. MS fundraising and ‘living with MS’ are two different worlds. It takes a unique person ‘to care’ enough to return my call inquiring about terrain and wheelchair accessibility at a polo field. And then … since the only road and packed level parking surface was restricted to high rolling sponsors,  “Rachael” appeared on site to help me navigate driving and parking on the surrounding terrain to make sure my wheel chair accessible van did not bottom out and we had room to deploy our ramp.


Caregivingly Yours, Patrick Leer
