Cliff and I entered the grounds of that tractor show and realized just how big it was. I thought to myself, "I hope there are lots of places to sit down."
We walked past the place where golf carts could be rented, but about fifty yards past it, Cliff slowed down.
"Do you think we should get one of those?"
"Well, this looks like a big area; but they're expensive to rent."
"Do you think you'll be able to walk all these grounds?"
We ended up turning around, going back, and renting a golf cart. I do pretty well walking, as long as I can take a sit-down break once in a while. But standing in one spot is really rough on the knees. And turns out there really were not that many places to sit down and take a break.
As far as Cliff and I are concerned, it was money well spent; although I hear there are people who attended the show that thought these carts shouldn't be allowed.
Maybe one day their bodies won't be so agile and pain-free, and they'll learn first-hand why older folks need some help getting around.
At some tractor shows I've attended, I've seen senior citizens carrying a thing that looks like a cane... but they can unfold it and it's a portable seat. I'd LOVE to have one of those!
