Great Marketing Opportunity!

 Those catalogs aimed at the Senior Set are definitely missing a bet.
They offer carts to ease the strain on elderly muscles, but they miss the point entirely.  Those carts carry stuff way down low, where it’s difficult to bend and almost impossible to lift.  People my age need something more like supermarket carts – having one of them at home would make life a lot easier.

Meanwhile, the catalogs show pictures of happy grandparents pushing rollators (I can’t believe that word isn’t trade-marked).
And they completely ignore what would be a great selling point. 
Though I don’t need one (yet), I ordered a rollator that was too good a bargain to pass up.  And it turns out it’s just right for
bringing the groceries in from the car,

hauling around the laundry, or
getting the bird seed from the car to the backyard storage can.

The large wheels negotiate rough ground better than the little ones. Thought you ought to know. :-)
