My mother called Friday before we left to inform us that she had wiped out on a drive way. The wipe out brought with it a broken leg, and ankle. If you know my mom, this isn't a big surprise. She seems to be accident prone. I can't tell you how many people we have talked to in the past two days who also said they fell on the ice, but did not BREAK anything. Nope... just mom. The long and short of it is that her rental car started to slide out of the drive way she was parked in, which of caused her concern because it was a rental car and she didn't have the extra insurance. So her mind was on paying more money for another damaged car. Oh yeah... she has a rental because two weeks ago a "crazy" driver hit her at a stop sign. The luck of the Woodford's carries on! Anyway she was so worried about the car that she wasn't paying attention to where she was walking, therefore causing the fall and broken body parts. Merry Christmas! That has not deterred my mother from her favorite love.... shopping. It just makes it more challenging. The Walmart man showed her how to pop wheelies with the motor carts. I think it scared her more than him. We absolutely didn't pop an wheelies. She also rented a "Knee Walker", so she is moving faster and makes it a bit more challenging to keep up with her.
We hope you are keeping warmer than we are.
This is my parents street, or at least it is under the THICK SHEET OF ICE! Now you know why my mom fell.
One of my little Snow Babies. The other one wouldn't stay still long enough for a pic. I'll catch him.
