"Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down."

I was going to title the post “wheelchairs, scooters, and canes…oh, my”; the above phrase fits my story better. Here is the background and again I wish I could write as funny as I can tell stories in personal. (I am an amateur storyteller) Bruce and I like to go to casinos, as do many other retirees. Last week we were in two casinos in St. Louis.

I had taken my walker, one of those marvelous rollators. I still have to be on my feet, however my spine and pelvic are not supporting me, which is tough. I spent much of my time at a slot or just people watching. I got to noticing how many people were using wheelchairs, walkers, canes, and especially electric scooters. During the day casinos have more older people than younger ones playing. (After all, we have the time and our SS checks)

Then I noticed a guy go by me that had the same wobbly gait that I and other RA/OA people sometimes have. (I wobble) The first guy was walking with a cane. For some dumb reason I started trying to pick out who had RA/OA, and which people had had knee or hip problems. Wasn’t that a silly game?

I am happy to report one never gets too old or feeble to go to casino and gamble. People are there with oxygen tanks, Seeing Eye dogs, and various medical equipment. I hope they all won a big jackpot.

Time for me to check the Cardinal scores, they were behind earlier. Also, need to apply Nature's Inventory oil on my swollen ankles and feet.
