Showing off doesn't pay

Friday, hubby took me to a western store to see about getting a new pair of boots. I tried them ALL on including this sexy little number


I put one on and went traipsing up to the mirror telling hubby "Look at these!"






Yep, you guessed it

ankle twisted and I went right down on my (arse). The first thing I did is hope no one saw me, the second thing I did was try to get up and the last thing I did was wonder what I hurt. It is a little dangerous falling when you are in your 60's. Well, thank goodness for this nice little layer of fat I have, because I must have bounced and only have a sore ankle.....
and just as soon as I am no longer gimpy, I can wear my new boots.
Note to self: Showing off doesn't pay

Ouch - injury to pride AND the ankle! Baby the ankle for a few days and keep it elevated when you can.

Despite the danger involved, you're making me want a new pair of boots! Hope you get better before you get worse.

Glad to hear you are okay and you will enjoy those new boots. I just love boots. My Mother's last job was working for Texas Boot and Puppy got three really neat pairs from Grandma. I have Dad's boots and glasses and I had planned to make shadow boxes with them for the Grandkids but alas the project is still on hold. Peace
