We gave Betty a wheelchair today.

Actually, by the time you read this, Betty will have had her wheelchair for a few days. Betty (not her real name, but a story always goes better with a name attached) and I met each other about 3 months ago. Betty is a homeless person who said she was running from an abusive situation in eastern Washington. Betty looks to be around 70-years old, it is hard to tell her real age. Life is hard on the streets.
