Walt and Darrell-
Right after I posed the question on freezing and what you do about them, my Fall NPF magazine came and there was a wonderful article on freezing. You can all read it online at: http://www.parkinson.org/freezing2.htm
It said walking and treadmill work were helpful in strengthening the legs but also using a hand-held laser or getting a specially trained dog. It discusses at what stage of the disease it usually hits and whether medication, mainly length of time/years taking Sinemet, makes an effect and freezing. It sounds like a real frustration and one I'm not looking forward to! This is a very readable article. Enjoy!

p.s. Walt, my dad uses two canes as well; prefers them over the conventional walker he and my mother have.
Carole
