Grip, Don’t Slip

Slippin’ and slidin’ may be fun when you’re young, but not so much when a) you have artificial joints, b) you have rheumatoid arthritis.

Fortunately, out here on the coast, that is not too much of a worry.

We have, however, had icy days when sidewalks and parking lots resemble skating rinks.

This is a recent addition to my winter wardrobe. I’d say, “Simply slip them on to your shoes,” but the fact is, if your hands are like mine, you’ll need help stretching these on to your shoes or boots.

Fashionable, they are not, but then, neither is a splayed-out Marianna!

Update: Grannymar mentioned them. Now, thanks to P., I am able to provide you with a link to some “hand-friendly” anti-skid safety soles.
