The Final Ride

Last night marked an major milestone. At first, Blaster was filled with trepidation leaving the knee scooter outside his reach in a public bathroom. Scared that he'd be left marooned if someone stole it. Then he proudly zipped around town, really the envy of every little kid who wanted one. Then the knee scooter fulfilled its' duties as shopping cart to the kitchen and to the Great Room and back.

For a while now though, it has sat idle staged at the foot of the bed, much like you might poise a fire truck awaiting for the next big alarm fire. Then last night, the knee scooter was called to action. He threw his leg on her, and zipped out of the bedroom. While you never forget how to ride a bicycle nor a knee scooter, he was bit shaky on it as it had been a month since he had been using it daily.

The door to the spare bedroom squeaked open, and Blaster returned on foot. Yes, that was the final ride for the knee scooter. I guess this officially symbolizes closing the chapter. Time to refurb the broken knob and get the knee scooter sold in the next month.

Today, is also marks the end of the schedules for transition from his metal boot to his hiking boot. Nothing but a few more months before he's 100% show-ready!
