RDP Monday: Nimble

Walker

Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over the candlestick.

The candlestick is not my problem, it is the jump. I now have my walking stick, my walker (known as Rollator in German because I suppose it rolls with you) and for long distance travel my electric wheelchair. I met someone last week in the store that I had not seen for some time. Another surprise for them as they remember me from 20 years ago and not a golden oldie clinging to the shopping trolley for support.

And then someone made the comment, “it cannot be pleasant depending on a wheelchair”. They were being kind of course, but my answer brought a laugh with it. I said “a wheelchair is the best I did. I can now go on photography expeditions and no longer have to carry the heavy equipment with me. Just put the camera and the lens in a bag and wheel on with it”.

Even my walker has its advantages. I can move around at home and my computer, iPad, mobile phone and Kindle moves with me. It is all a matter of organisation. Nimble is a matter of interpretation.

    • I love my walker, it is so useful and a safety belt for me. I cannot take it with me when I go shopping as I have too much and use the supermarket trolley, but for a quick errand or a doctor visit it is very useful. I can collapse it to put in the car.

  1. I have one of those rollators too. I have not had to use it yet, but I keep it where I can easily get to it. I want one of those electric tricycles 🙂 I want one that will travel on dirt, not just on sidewalks or smooth floors because most of the places we go are grassy. That’s why I don’t have a chair. We live too far out of town for me to get there from home and even in town, everything is too far from everything else. The chair would run out of power before I got to see anything.

    • I am also,thinking about a tricycle but do not have the possibility in my apartment to upload the battery, only in the garage where there would be problems as the costjs will be charged to everyone living in the block
