Further to my quest for a scooter to get around on I have the following to say:
- The Social Security office in San Diego is located a few blocks from the downtown jail. Our county sheriff pretty much demanded that those bus stops closest to the local Social Security Office be shut down so that escapees from the jail couldn't use city buses to escape. So our city council of the time order the stops closed. This means I have further to walk from the stop closest to Social Security in San Diego, and that's really beyond me at the moment. I need to physically visit the Social Security office in San Diego in order to replace my Medicare card. Help me get a scooter and you'll help me get my Medicare card.
- I also could use a scooter to visit the Traveller's Aid office in San Diego. There I can provide proof of income and with that proof get assistance with things such as cab vouchers and the like. Would make it easier for me to go shopping for groceries and the like, what with having to use a walker to get around.
So there you have two more reasons why I should get a scooter, and two more justifications for donations from you.
Of course the osteoarthritis in hips and knees does play a role in all this.
