Also got gas bill today, and even being home all day most days, I'm using half the gas I did last year at this period, so go me.
There's a guy in the neighbourhood, younger than me, who uses a walker but bends his torso almost double to do so. If I used my walker that's what I'd do too, because my legs are happy to clop along if the weight of my upper body is taken off it. This I discovered while zooming about with one of Loblaws' short shopping carts, and that actually is what I really want for walking with. All walkers want you to support yourself on you arms, which is a problem if your arms aen't up to it. Something that takes the torso weight is what's needed, and I'm surprised no one here has designed it. But it took forever for walkers to get over here, decades after I used to see them everywhere in Japan. We lag, is all.
