Do I ever know to celebrate the holidays! I was leaving my sister-in-law’s house last Friday and took a misstep and fell. So far not so bad. Well, as it turns out I have a cracked bone down the center of my right foot and a severe ankle sprain. And it hurts like a son of a gun!

I had just come from having a great lunch with my good friend Danna. Then it started to go downhill. When we came out of the restaurant, I found out I had locked my keys in my car, which made me really happy. It has been a hundred years since I had done that. At that point, something told me I should just go home when the nice young man from AAA got my car unlocked. But I had some clothes I was going to take somewhere, and Danna said while we were eating she had some used clothes she was giving to someone who was going to meet her in the parking lot and pick them up. That’s when I told Danna I had a ton of stuff I needed to take somewhere. She told me we should go by the house and pick them up, and she would take them to this nice lady. So we did.
