My Wheelchair-incorporating Halloween Costumes

There’s not much to say while editing what I hope will be my first published fiction—progress is being made—but I’ve seen so many pictures of wheelchair or disability-related Halloween costumes on social media that I thought I’d share my own. The below are from the early 1980s. I went trick-or-treating as a golfer after I got my first power wheelchair scooter, which was a very new thing and I felt like everyone in the world wanted to tell me that it looked like a golf cart. I think it was Halloween 1983. The injured Philadelphia Eagle picture is dated 1980 on the back, and clearly before I had the good sense to become fan of the Steelers!

Happy Halloween!
