    Good morning, (afternoon) ,,, went to Oakland, Md this morning and had breakfast with a few Ma Bell retirees . Before breakfast stopped at storeroom and talked with some of the fellows my brother and I had worked with. Some hadn't heard of him passing away, same at the breakfast. Had a good visit, then went over to my JD dealer and talked with shop foreman for a while.

    I have a Chiropractor appt at 1400 so needing to move on.

    Just looked at a rollator thing on Harbor Freight. Didn’t realize they have a seat also. That might be an awesome thing to have also.

    I see you went prepared - good for you! I’m sure those things helped make it a much more enjoyable trip for both of you.
    These are what I bought.

    Rolator http://www.amazon.com/Lumex-RJ4718B-...66198794&psc=1: My dad wore out the wheels on his old one (Medicare purchased) and needed one quickly. Didn't want to deal with the paperwork AND wanted a height adjustable one for a better fit. Bonus was that being adjustable, handles would come off so it would fit in my trunk; first couple of rollators that he had could only fit in back seat. Added a front pouch/sack and an air-adjustable seat pad. Since my dad is currently in a wheelchair only, hubby tried this rollator and liked it better than the one I'd gotten for him when he'd had a severe gout attack during a bout with pancreatitis.

    Cane Seat http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1: This is NOT good as a walking cane, but is very good as a seat - just like the reviews say. Saw posts that the leg bolt was weak, so replaced it with a hardened one before using.



    Airline wheelchairs: I did not see a place on the American Airlines website to pre-select wheelchair assistance. It said to just ask. In Austin, the moment the walker was unloaded from the car, we were asked if we wanted a wheelchair. He was transported through security and to the gate waiting area. They would have taken him on the plane too, but we told them that he could make it with the walker. Once at the plane, the walker & the cane/seat were stowed by the crew and he used the seat backs to help while walking to the seat.

    American had a wheelchair and an attendant (pusher) waiting for him automatically at our DFW plane transfer and at the destination, Vancouver. The walker & cane/seat were waiting by the plane's door too. I used it to transport some of the carry-on luggage which left a free hand for one other piece. We'd checked 1 bag originally ($30) so I had to deal with 2 carry-on bags, a laptop case & hubby's camera backpack. Flights were full, so American offered free checking of carry-ons at the gate area. I checked 1 more bag which made my pack-horse duty easier.

    The return trip was via Alaska Airlines and I'd selected Wheelchair Assistance on their website. We had to change planes in Anchorage and Seattle. Wheelchairs were waiting at Fairbanks, Anchorage & Austin. Apparently 7 wheelchairs had been requested for the plane in Seattle, but only 6 showed up. Fortunately the gate for the plane to Austin was close & we told them he could manage rather than sit & wait for another chair.

    Pretty soon we'll be getting out the bird feeders.
    Thats what my wife is doing to. The birds will stop on their way through on their migration and will remember where they got food at. So each year we put them out when they start and take them down when they are finished. I am hooeful next spring we will have a bunch of residents here because they had a bunch of young ones this year. Going to plant more flowers and trees too. This year it didnt happen for obvious reasons.

    Hubby says to tell you that the biggest problem that he had was the stairs on the buses. They seem to have a higher than standard rise. Some had good handrails and some had missing sections.

    See....that’s stuff you never would think of.

    I was really impressed with the airlines. My first question was going to be what do you do with the roller walker when you got on the plane. And I find the wheelchair service just great - he was treated like a king!

    You’ve taken the edge off for me thinking about traveling - thank you! If I could only get through the #### process of getting my RealID.....

    We ALWAYS wait until we don't see any for a couple of days.
