One snow shoe and boot came off. My jacket was very warm but I had on light pants. Pants were soaked, sock was soaked, could not bend properly to get my boot back on. Kept sinking in the snow and could not get up.

Laid there for awhile, laughed, then cried, then got angry and said, "Well, warm enough I'll survive til morning (hope) but ...." Didn't want to spend the night there! Finally started to roll, roll, roll til I reached ground that would allow me to get up.

Dragged my boot with me but the snow shoe stayed til the snow was hard enough for me to walk on again.

Final line is .... if the geese don't go into the shelter on the first attempt of no more than 10 feet out, well .... again may favourite saying... too bad, so sad, the coyotes will just get another one! I love my geese - but love me (at least my kids do) more.
Yeah, I almost lost Shrek the other day just going to the mail box...about 50 feet. Glad you made it back to the house! My trial by ice is above in the thread somewhere...I always end up with all 4 paws in the air at least once each winter.

it was reading your post about Shrek and the mail box that led me to tell you about my little misadventure.

Everybody looks at you and says, OMGoodness, you have to be careful! Wha????

no no I always run around at full speed with scissors in my hand and a lollipop stick in my mouth. Hello????

We do what we can to take care but sometimes even the best plans don't always work. One just has to realize that and be prepared to think of alternatives.

Oh yeah, they always look at you like you did it on purpose. "Didn't you know that was a sharp knife?"

But, I am just as guilty telling folks to be careful. Mostly because I don't want to take care of them if they get hurt...

I feel the same way, anyone who goes off into uncharted country have assumed ALL responsibility for their safety and should have to pay for the rescue.
I remember, a number of years ago, some rich Yankees wanted to wilderness trek in Greenland. They were outraged that the Danish government wanted them to have insurance or post a bond for their possible rescue.

too funny taxlady, do you know how many people have said that to me?

In actual fact I usually do have it in my pocket.... except that evening, for some reason, had used it more than usual and it insisted I put it on its charger.

Out here in the country, our ditches are so deep that should you go in... they won't find you til the spring. Living alone on a farm with horses, one always has to think .... it was the main reason I got a cell phone, to get me out of a ditch or ... if conscious, let someone know a horse had kicked me.

Ahh well, c'est la vie. Don't sweat the small stuff. We need to leave this world singing wooo hooo - WHAT A RIDE!!!!!
