We live in a city that has a good bit of traffic and lots of active people. I have a hard time figuring out what to do on holidays, e.g. July 4th or Memorial Day. There are events planned, but Mom doesn't walk well. There are so many people now that you might have to park many blocks away and walk to the event. It's not very practical. I usually just end up getting some barbecue and bringing it home. The only family we have here have their own plans for the holiday that don't include an elderly mother.
What do the people here do on July 4th? I thought it would be fun to start having a barbecue at the house. Alas, I don't know anyone who won't be with their own family. I don't know who I could invite. Man, I'm a bit pitiful. I need some ideas.
