I can relate. Today DH and I took MIL (who has alzheimers) to lunch. The waiter was one of my former 2nd grade students and will be enrolling next semester in the university where I teach so he'll be one of my college students now. He's late 20's, married, and has a kid. YIKES!
Hey don't knock the walker. I've been using a cane off and on for a year. DH is going to get me one of these before our next camping trip so that when we go walking the dogs we can go longer than just down the street and back.
