Being wise beyond my years, I have decided to make use of that wisdom and place only one item on my Christmas list this year.
(I realize that maybe I’ve been negligent in not joining most of America in buying too much for those who don’t need any more things.)
So, I have a creative and practical answer plan for what I want for Christmas..... I was going to invest in one of those smaller cars with great gas mileage, but discovered that I couldn’t pull myself out of one once I got in to it. So, common sense and weak legs told me to come up with my own creation that will fit my limited but quality oriented lifestyle.
Here’s my plan: First, I’m going to spend a minimal amount of money on a Harley to save gas......... or perhaps a gas powered bike……or maybe just a scooter. But that’s just the beginning!!
I will take that “bike” and customize it for comfort and convenience that any senior would be proud of. There will be a basket, of course, and I guess it would be smart to get a magnified windshield just in case my eyes start to get blurry, and storage --- one bag for groceries and one for my prescription meds. and adult needs. I’ll have a quick release strap for my cane and a flip up display case for my blue placard.
I wonder if I should put out the extra money for the cushioned upholstered extra wide seat with the adjustable padded arm rests. Another option is a pill dispenser with a timer on the handlebars in case I get carried away with all the envious “oohs” and “ahhs” I’ll be attracting. And I seem to remember, (somewhere in one of the 600 catalogs I receive every two weeks), a cashmere seat cover that comes in a variety of colors.
Now, what do you think.... should I invest in special flashing lights that are reminiscent of the old blue light specials from Kmart? That will really make me stand out and even increase socialization around the neighborhood as people rush for any sale opportunities. It would be nice to have a following….
However, now that real wisdom is starting to come through to me, I wonder if I should just stick with trying to learn how to give love and compassion to anyone in need.
It’s not flashy or trendy....but it’s the only lasting gift….
