This is what I have come to! My mother didn't use a walker until she was in her 80s. I bought this one from a resident here at the apartments for a good price. I thought it would help me get down the hall to the mail boxes, and office. Some times I get a package and have a hard time walking and carrying a box. This way I can sit it on the seat and push it down the hall. It really isn't a long hall, it's just my hip and back hurts and before I can get back to my apartment I need a rest. A long time ago, when I attended camp outs, I saw some people using what looked like a three legged stool with an umbrella handle. When tired you just folded the seat out, sat and rested for a while. One lady said it was nice, but a little heavy to carry. Anyway I thought the walker  was a deal, and it folds and easily goes inside my truck. 
Signs of old age?
Yesterday was a really hard day, I went to Wal Mart and they did not have the electric cart, so I had to walk the store, I had a lot to buy and my prescriptions to pick up. Well, guess what, my meds. were NOT ready. I had called them in several days ago. I waited for two of them, and finally today got a call the other one was ready. Now, another trip to Wally world. Was not in my plans. Ah  the plans of mice and men!

  1. One of those seat walkers would have been handy for me after I had foot surgery! I bought a walker just to hop one footed around in. Anytime you go to WM, if there isn't a electric cart available, ask for the manager. You might have to wait a little while, but they will locate you one. I had to do that once too.
