Now that I’ve lived in Mexico for 12 years, my 4 years younger boyfriend calls me his “seniorita.”
I’ll be lugging this boot along in my life for 3 weeks total, but not the ice bag ingeniously strapped to it by my brother-in-law Jim. He and Patti furnished wonderful support for the first week after my foot surgery. Now I’ve shifted to my friend Patty’s house. Wanted to try out the new fast post on my blog and this is the most current noteworthy event in my life. It gives me new respect for all with challenging bodily differences. Everything takes ten times as much effort. Just getting into and out of this heavy, tall boot with its seven straps and velcro closures is exhausting. It also reminds me that my first published poem was in the Journal of Foot Surgery after surgery on my other foot 31 years ago!!!! If I had a copy, I’d post it…Perhaps I’ll be able to locate it when I return to Mexico. Keep hoppin’!!!!
