It hasn’t been a year since I twisted my ankle on the ice and broke it so you can imagine how cautious I am while walking Truman on icy sidewalks this winter. I’m sure I look like a geriatric penguin. I guess I should say “looked” like a geriatric penguin until some friends of mine gave me a gift of Yaktrax for Christmas. Yaktrax are devises you slip over your shoes or boots that grip and dig into the snow and ice to prevent you from slipping. They work great. What a thoughtful gift for someone who is always outside walking no matter what the weather. Now, if Truman would only learn to wear doggie boots the two of us would make an invincible pair.
