Welcome To Golden Technologies | Companion – 3-Wheel Midsize Scooter

This is the scooter I presently have. It goes seven-eight mph and can travel 12 miles on a single charge. I speed up and down the halls to the terror of all the residents. I even have mirrors on both sides of the handles. My first one, I rode into the ground. I worked that one so hard it could no longer take a charge. Even with new batteries.

Thanks, Addie. I was just feeling wistful about the scooters I enjoyed in the past. Now it really isn't feasible because I wouldn't be able to take my cart with me, plus I don't have the space to store a scooter.
,
I've changed my way of shopping to buy enough to get me through the month. I like havingk. a variety of foods to choose from. I may try to get a scooter later if my legs don't improve with the medication I'm taking. I'd love to be able to get to the library. It's not far and would help cut down my books costs. I read constantly, usually 4 or 5 books a week.

I do have a dedicated spot in my apartment for the scooter. And I showed you the wrong one. I have the one just above that one. I have the 3-wheel full size. It has all the bells and whistle. And the best part? It didn't cost me a single cent.

I'm working on my lists for our trip (I am known for making a list of all the lists I need....seriously )

Anyway, this time I am just making it a multi-level bulleted list with what we are packing, doing, needing to pick up or buy, etc. TB is getting the suitcases out so we can start throwing stuff in, i.e. the warmer clothes we will need for walking out in Alaska, our formal wear, bathing suits, etc.

I am also making a list of what we need to do for the house sitters - make them a to do list for the animals, get enough pet food, etc. I am really going to need a vacation by the time I get ready for it! I can't believe it is this coming Friday!

Glad to see you back. No, you can't just sneak back without us noticing. What have you been up to?

Hey Taxy!

I have been throwing myself into the job (and it has been very interesting and stimulating!) But I have still been cooking of course!

It's super late here but I look forward to catching up on all DC events and discussing some "American" recipes that I have "tinkered" with!!!
