caregiving: Jubilee Day 2008 outing

Creating time to laugh IS caregiving!


Join us for a 3 minute version (from a wheelchair perspective) of today’s Jubilee Day™, the “largest one day street fair on the East Coast.”


If you have problems playing video through this journal you can view directly on You Tube at:



P.S. Uploading this video I noticed that Caregivingly Yours videos on You Tube have been viewed 39,000+ times since the first was uploaded 20 months ago. Thank you ALL for sharing the journey of caregiving and living with Multiple Sclerosis.

  1. what a delightful day it looks like you and Patti had, Patrick

    Patti always looks so sharply dressed with a nice hat and jewelry on; and always a great smile on her face and an infectious laugh; you just want to laugh along with her

    loved the chicken

    impressive 39,000 views!! do you have a sitemeter site thingee on your blog where you can see where your readers are coming from? Krissy over at Sometimes I Think posted a site ( where you can get a free account and they track where readers come from; I have someone from Belgium that paid a visit the other day; its kind of neat to see who stumbles upon your words written

    so glad it was an enjoyable day! you've had your van for a few years already, seems to me you got it while we still lived in Montana and next week we'll be here 2 years (my how time flies :)


  2. ((((((((((((((((hugstoyou)))))))))))))))))))I always like watching your videos.Have a nice weekend.

  3. Looks like an enjoyable time. Patti's laugh is infectious. She just makes you want to smile and enjoy yourself. Thanks for sharing this. Congrats on all the views on Youtube! (Hugs)Indigo

  4. A wheelchair's perspective... that was an eye opener! I hadn't thought about seeing it from down there. Once I tried to understand my son's discomfort at DisneyWorld when he was 7 years old. I stooped down to his height, surrounded by all those big adult bodies, and felt the pressure he felt, the heat, the suffocating stuffiness of being pressed in by too many bodies standing around waiting for the Parade to pass by. I urged my husband to move into an open area, to stand up on a wall, or to just leave the crowd. We left the crowd, and went on some rides that weren't crowded because everyone else was standing outside watching the parade. I imagine it could be like that for someone in a wheelchair, surrounded by towering bodies. Patti is so cute... both of you in your hats are a pair. Loved the video! bea

  5. Loved the video and her laugh is just wonderful.    All those butt's, LOL.
