Leaning on something

You all know I broke my foot.  This led the doctors to give me various assistive devices, including a cane and a walker--not simultaneously, the walker came first.

  I can now report that walking with a cane makes you look ten years older.  Instantly, even if you have just undergone a facelift.  A walker adds another  ten years, plus the suspicion that you are either deaf or senile.  So people enunciate carefully, making sure you are looking them straight in the face.  Ugh!

Stunning story there. What occurred after? Take care!

Looking straight in the face helps with hearing aids too. I often tell my interlocutor "Talk to me, please, not the wall." I'm treadmilling daily to stay off the walker. But a cane is somewhat attractive. Can't go on pretending to be young.

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and
I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if
you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
