We just learned that Dr. Ayres attended a performance of "Porgy and Bess" in San Francisco about a month ago. Our spies say that he left his walker in the restaurant at the opera house and walked without his walker to his seat- quite a considerable distance. Our spies said Ayres had no trouble whatsoever walking without his walker.
What do you think? Is his walker a sympathy prop? Or a necessity for a frail old man?
