To the editor:
Saturday afternoon, Jan. 18, was a very windy day! I used my walker to get my mail at the box near the street. While I was taking the mail from the lockbox, the wind increased, my walker took off and ended up one block away by the curb on a street that is usually busy. At that time, without a walker or a cane, I felt like I was in a boat without a paddle.
Fortunately, there was little traffic at that particular time. A man driving by stopped his car when he saw my predicament. He brought the walker to me. (By then, I was halfway to get it.)
I am sending this letter to thank the very kind man who helped me. He also had a great sense of humor and said, with a smile, “You haven’t live in Kansas very long, have you?”
