CANE You Dig It?

Hurry Cane or Trusty Cane?

Hurry Cane or Trusty Cane?

No, it’s not a typo. It’s my latest obsession.

I like to watch a couple of shows late at night. Dragnet. Perry Mason. Stuff that’s just about in the public domain.

Apparently, older Americans go for this type of programming as well. In between the predatory attorney commercials, the reverse mortgage scams, and the medical-supplies-right-to-your-door adverts, I discovered something fantastic. Strike that. I found something fantastic times two.

Consider the Hurry Cane and the Trusty Cane!

Both are all-terrain, collapsible, adjustable, and downright impressive. How can I be expected to choose?

The Trusty Cane comes with a built-in light, and it looks seriously powerful on the commercial. This might sway me. But the other choice is called Hurry Cane! Man, that would be so much fun to say at parties.

As my wife points out, I do not actually need a cane. Pffft. I don’t actually need a baseball hat either, but I have plenty of those. Technically, none of us needs shoes, but they’re really nice to have.

I’ve been agonizing about my preference in hi-tech canes for a couple of weeks. There is no end in sight. I’ll figure it out ¬†over the next few days because there is no way that I’m going to wake up one morning weakened by an overnight spider attack and not have the support of a folding, three-footed cane. I’m pretty sure that’s in the Constitution…toward the bottom.

To all the other fathers contemplating which cane to buy for home safety and physical support, I wish you a happy Father’s Day.

    I have a plain old wooden cane that I occasionally use. I’m not ready for any other kind of cane, but a segue sounds good. Did I spell segue correctly?

      Segue is old hat. These hi-tech canes are the future. Great for home protection too.
