Mel, I don't give out too much info on my NWP page, so I don't name my sister.
Cathy takes some pretty good pics on our walks too!  She can go off trail to get some better ones than I can because I'm not allowed to do that.  I have a tendency to trip over things if I do!
I fell 3 times on one of our walks and I think I did some damage to my leg with the 3 trip.   Even last week, I slipped on some ice and gave myself a nice little bruise on my upper thigh.  It's fading now, but I thought I might be giving it a match on the other side yesterday when I slipped.  Didn't fall, so no damage.
Steven has even threatened to not let me go out with Cathy if I didn't stop falling!

Cindy I just love your photographs, they are art!   And as mentioned I go on walks with you through those beautiful, interesting photos!  That's neat that Cathy has the photo gene too>

Cathy is going to have to put a tether on you so you don't fall - after breaking my shoulder & my head needing 3 or 4 staples to close a wound when I missed the curb on Jan 18, 2028, a nice sunny dry day, I'm afraid to fall.  Do they make hiking shoes with cleats?   I bought a pair of cleats that go over my shoes, keep them in the car in case they are needed.  Behave yourself so Steven doesn't stop your photo excursions!

We have ice cleats which we will be looking into for next year.  I was actually going to try Steven's on Sunday and forgot.  I need new winter boots so won't be investing in the grips now.  But I'm hoping to get a pair of proper hiking boots for this year.  Being on a fixed income makes it hard to justify something like that.
Cathy just uses her phone to take her pictures, but it really takes good pics!  She'll let me go a short distance off trail, but she will go farther to get a good shot.
I've always been a bit of a clutz.  I'm one of those people who can trip over their own feet. I find the carefuler I am, the clumsier I am!
It won't be too much longer before I get to go back to my happy place, too.  A friend posted some pictures from there last week and a couple of geese are back!  Can't wait to see the chicks and watch them grow!
Thanks for liking the pictures!  It's hard to pick out which ones to post!

I was trying to think of ways to keep you out hiking and at your Happy Place!!     The cleats I bought were cheap at Costco, but they only have them in the winter I think, and they slip over the shoes you are wearing.  Found a Canada Geese webcam site and was going to share it with you but I think I accidentally deleted it because I can't find it.  Will look online later.

Yeah, that's what we have here too.  It's almost time to switch to rubber boots now.  We don't have a membership at Cosco right now.  But I'll start saving for a pair of cleats for next year.  Our pharmacy carries them.
It's not looking promising for us to get out this weekend.  Cathy and her boyfriend are supposed to be going to visit his sister this weekend, and we were going to do our walk on Friday.  But I just checked the forecast and it's calling for 70% chance of rain.
Once I do my morning stuff on the computer, I'm not at it until the next day.  I'm excited to get back to the lake where the geese are.  It seems like every year, there are more families.  I think the babies will start showing up in May.
