Okay, then, I guess I have a little more responsibility keeping up to date on this than originally thought… well, here goes…

GF got me (us!) two PAIRS of tickets to the Rockies/Dodgers games today and tomorrow! Currently cancelling students and getting ready to scram out of here early afternoon so we can make the brewery tour before the game tonight. Just yesterday, however, I began thinking about all the walking that would entail, and how wobbly I’ve been of late, and started thinking about alternatives. And a rolling walker came to mind…

…They’re called “rollators.” Part walker, part bicycle hand brake, part pushcart, part mobile situpon. Very handy, a little intimidating looking, and certainly something you’d see being pushed around by a hunched-over little old lady. Got a good mental image? Good. They’re pricey little buggers, but I gave one a test drive, and I liked the idea. Called around to see if someone would rent one, and a place here in Fort Fun actually GAVE one to me to use for the week! How cool is that?

If I get one, it’ll be much more ergonomically designed than this one – it’s a dinosaur (which is why they didn’t mind me taking it, I’m sure), but fully functional, and certainly safer than the stick I had planned to use exclusively. And the way this basket hangs underneath the front bar, and the way my walking stick collapses, I can hang my stick off the front of it and use IT when it’s more convenient (bathroom, stairs, etc.).

So we get brewery/distillery tour this afternoon, game tonight, breakfast tomorrow, quick stop at same brewery for lunch, free parking at the brewery both times, and game tomorrow afternoon, after which I’ll be ready for my gig that same night. It’s like a mini vacation. Not a bad way to go. Tickets are 1st row, right field – yeah, I’m bringing my mitt. If I catch a Todd Helton blast or a Nomah Gahciapaaruh jack I can die a happy man.
