    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Since everybody and their brother climbed into my sh-t for thinking about going out to eat as celebration for the end of LAST Challenge....
    I wanted you to know that I did NOT have a food celebration for it....
    I got these


    instead!!!
    Just funky enough to pass muster for my pretty feets!
    These are real Converse Chuck Conners but are made to be like gladiator sandals. , zip up the back so once they are tied to fit my feet, I only have to unzip to get em on and off.

    hugs

    Well, Judy, it's sort of a contortionists dream, lol
    I wear a LOT of slip on shoes, I also have a very long shoe horn and this doo-ma-hicky that has a cup hook on one end of a 2 ft dowel, and sort of a rubber coated clothes hook/utility hook on the other end. Hard to explain, but that also helps with "sad" heels that want to cave in when I try to get my heel in and with pulling the tongue out... Tying shoes is a different beast altogether.
    Most of the time, I get someone else's help with that on the left one. Michael helps with my walking tennis in the AM , I put the twins to good use.... I've not had to ask Monica yet, thank God, not sure if she'd help or not and I don't wanna find out, lol
    Some other tennis shoes that I have, I put those elastic curly shoe laces in. Those are made for people with arthritis in their hands but also work well with bad hips and knees if you cant stoop to tie. They stretch really well and once in , they only need to be pulled tight every month or so.

    hugs

    Don't wait until Thanksgiving or Christmas to buy a Turkey....
    I find it so much easier to munch on Turkey which is full of protien to hold your hunger. I buy a Turkey once a month. Just Turkey, no ... More
