NRSV--Getting the Boot

No, not the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible, but the new revised standard version of treatment for my inflamed Achilles tendon. That is my NRSV. When the physical therapist referred to a boot, this is not what I envisioned.

I only have to wear it when walking and I have to say that walking is less painful than before. I’ll be wearing it for 2-3 weeks. I do feel a bit like a peg-legged pirate when I walk though.ARRR!

Does it have spikes for walking on snow and ice?

Oh no!! But, it does have a good rubber sole that works pretty well. Sun. morning however, the parking lot was all ice and I wondered about going to church. I held on tight to Ray and we were fine. Now there's nothing.
