I'm glad you are okay. You should (for our peace of mind) get some of those strap on cleats for your boots. There was a good discussion about them and other walking in ice/snow aids.

If you still fall and can't get up you can always strap them on your knees.

Please take care, girlfriend, you got lucky this time.

Fortunately we don't get ice here much--in fact this is the first time the yard has ever been iced over. The brick stairs leading out our front door do get icy now and then, and that really scares me. We usually put something on them but didn't get a chance to this time. More of it should melt today. We were supposed to go to our friends' house tonight, but part of the reason we won't be able to make it is that Cubbie's whole area where we tie him out is still an ice rink. Plus his water tub is frozen. I'll be glad when this ice goes away! Snow I don't mind, ice I mind!
