Polio and the red wagon
My cousin Brenda had polio when she was 3 years old . Dad had bought us 8 kids a radioflyer red wagon we were alwas fighting to see just who got to ride and who had to pull. When Brenda come home from the hospital we didnt argue anymore who would ride we argued who would get the honor of pulling her around the block.It was a pleasure to see her happy face .all the neighbors would come out and talk to us, give us cookies and kool-aid and one lady made her a cushion to put behind her back and one to lay her braces on her legs upon.In my mind i see how that red wagon and Brenda made a neighborhood more friendly with one another.we gave Brenda our much loved radioflyer wagon.

"My Radio Flyer story is quite new. For the last several months every time my husband comes home from work (he works overseas on a month off a month) our youngest son has to go to the Co-Op the very next morning. They go and make their purchases and then he tells his Dad and the clerk he needs to go check on "his" tricycle. He knows right where it is and hops on ringing the bell. This Classic Red Dual Deck Tricycle has become his greatest Christmas wish. Oops they went last Friday and "his" tricycle was gone. We expected a complete meltdown, however, what we got surprised us. He announced Santa must have come and got it for him already and ever since he tells everyone Santa went and got his tricycle to bring him for Christmas. Boy I hope Santa makes good on this big wish."
