Shrek is now using the elec scooters or the wheelchair with a basket (I push). Sometimes he looks like a rolling trash heap by the time I finish shopping, but it does make the trip go faster. It's also easier to leave him at the end of an aisle while I run down and get what I want.

I'm getting closer to taking my turn with those!

These days when I go into the store, even for just one item, I grab a cart to use as my rolling walker!

My mom was too proud to use a motorized cart, but she always insisted on using a regular shopping cart as her "walker".

It took me three years to talk her into getting a handicap tag for her car, and even then, she wouldn't hang it from the mirror, she left it on the seat!

I'm relaxing. Every stinkin' time I have a garage sale I swear I'll never do it again. And then I do. BUT, I did make $166 dollars today (including the pre-sale stuff from a neighbor). Even deducting paying for tonight's take out of $23, which will feed us tomorrow and another day too, I still cleared almost as much as I need for a tablet of my own...since Himself said we could "share" his, and now he won't. And we did get rid of some things. Not enough, but some. Forgot to take photos before I started today, so here are a couple of shots of what I'll have starting tomorrow. Weather permitting, we'll do this again next Thursday/Friday. At least almost everything is priced...

Looks good, CG. Nice and organized - I dislike going to garage/yard sales when everything is a jumbled mess.

My son-in-law hosts huge Halloween parties every year and would like your ghost.

99% of the time I see most people are more than happy to help those who are shopping alone while in elec scooters. The thing I see most often is those who have trouble reaching the regular milk - they put it on the highest shelves and the soy/almond/half and half/cream etc. on reachable shelves.

When I was at the store yesterday I watched a very short little old lady trying to reach the top shelf to get a box of tissues. I was going to ask her if I could help, but she managed to get it. As I'm tall, I have no problem reaching stuff, and try to offer help when needed. She was pretty feisty!

If I see a tall person nearby, I ask them to help me with stuff from the high shelf. It's hard to climb the shelf and grab stuff at the same time.

I find a good percentage of people who need help don't ask right away. So I offer. But no one ever offers to get down on their hands and knees to get an item at the back of the bottom shelf for me.
