I had a bum knee a couple years back. I had trimmed back a snowball bush just prior to the knee giving me trouble. I saved Some of the larger pieces that were about 4 feet long thinking I could use them as handles for whatever. I was having a rough time walking so I picked out one of the larger pieces of snowball bush and pared it down to the length that felt best to help me get around. I used it for several months and it is still in my garage should I feel the need to have it again. I left the bark on it and pushed a rubber tip on it. Works. Danged glad to have it at the time.
Nice collection of walking sticks Steve. Thanks for sharing the picture and info.
