    skating down the driveway

    Post  Sunshine16 on Thu Jan 11, 2018 12:19 pm

    The other day we had some ice here in Virginia...I skated my way down to the driveway and had to walk up on the lawn. Anyway..someone posted this online which I thought was funny as I could relate to this guy. He was not hurt. Is there something wrong with me for laughing? I mean...this is gold for America's Funniest Videos.

    Last year I bought these things on Amazon that you put on your shoes to keep you from sliding on ice. They work pretty well. So well my wife wanted a set, too.

    Last year I walked out very carefully to open the door of the truck to start it, pulled out the scraper, gingerly stepped around to the front of my truck, held onto various parts while I scraped off the windshield, carefully worked my way over to the passenger side to get the shoe traction gizmos, then walked back to the driver side where I intended to put them on. My one error after that 15-minute bit of work was to walk back around not wearing the devices as though I had them on. Feet flew up, butt flew down and traction doohickies went over in the snow about 10 feet.

    You only have to do that once to learn your lesson.

    The landing was pretty bad.
