All this bicycling and dog walking should make one fit enough to climb a tree to photograph a raptor... right?
I managed to get a few great pics in spite of my modest amateur camera.
Speaking of unique sights in small towns...
An athletic male bicyclist on a sleek recumbent bike was seen peddling along country roads while carrying a quad walking cane as curious cargo. Joggers dropped their jaws, car slowed down extra slow. Isn't a walking cane and a bicycle quite the oxymoron in motion?
So what do these two stories have in common?
But I am recuperating from a minor accident. The quad walking cane was delivered by bicycle to my campsite so I can hobble around in dignity... a polite term for being mobile enough to hobble to the broom closet where I keep a bathroom stashed.
The rest of my day/night is spent with my leg propped up or iced down. Dog walking duties have been farmed out while I figure out this temporary lifestyle.
But I am going to be fine, I just know it. And I didn't really climb a tree... notice I never said I climbed a tree ( read carefully!) but it's a far better story than what really happened.
Kind of like the shark bite that wrecked my knee or the busted leg from skydiving. Those other times when I used walkers, cranes, canes to get around.
Assorted quad walking canes (click for more info) are available from Amazon with one and two day shipping options.
I am lucky and very grateful and thankful that my eccentric friend chose to go buy one miles away at a pricey drug store by bicycle. (I say pricey because I noticed that Amazon has the price beat by 20% plus free two-day delivery for Prime Members. )
Any which way you look at it, having an angel fetch and deliver a quad walking cane in an hour by bicycle... PRICELESS!
Life is goof.
