Script Details

Narrator must have a North Carolinian accent.  
People from here and there have sometimes felt sorry for me because they see me as a person who is trapped in a useless body, trapped in an iron lung, trapped in a place not even big enough for a stoplight. They need not shed tears for me.
I treasure every minute spent with every friend, whether it’s the gynecologist who trains horses in dressage, the illiterate handyman who listens in secret to opera, the college professor who pilfers rides in boxcars, or the grandmother who roller skates alone in a rink on Wednesday mornings. Each one has a special way of expanding my world. They have made my life not only bearable but also rich.
I’ve “attended” more weddings than Liz Taylor and Mickey Rooney combined. It’s not unusual for a newlywed couple to drop by after the ceremony for me to see them dressed in their wedding togs. One couple rented a horse and carriage for the first leg of their honeymoon. Before they drove into the sunset, they detoured by my window. Every May, proud graduates in full academic regalia march through my door and we imagine we are hearing “Pomp and Circumstance.” Not long ago my friend Jim walked the entire web of our village streets with his camera to show me the results of the cleanup and beautification project.
Brunch is a favorite time for entertaining. It gives us the time we must have for morning chores but not be exhausted from the day’s activities. My friend Pat is the consummate hostess. When she’s here from Raleigh visiting her mother, we look for reasons to have a party. When a fellow who grew up in our village and was thought by many to be a loser came home a winner, Pat and I decided a celebration was in order. We invited a few others and had a magnificent time reliving old days of basketball victories and special teachers. With balloons, banners, and flowers, we made him aware of our pride in him.
The roads I travel with friends are endless.
