Play It Safe!

Posted by 2 on

Mother Nature is playing tricks with us this year by prolonging winter but, believe it or not, spring and summer are just around the corner! So it won’t be long before our kids are begging us to pump up the bike tires and search for their rollerblades, skateboards and scooters. Now it’s my turn to remind you to check the fit of their safety helmets as well and enforce the simple rule: NO helmet = NO bikes, tricycles, rollerblades, skateboards or scooters!

It’s mid March and I’m sitting on my back patio drinking a glass of wine. I’m wearing a tank top and shorts and I’m still hot. My dogs are sitting with me … the German Shepherd is busy trying to protect me from planes flying overhead (she barks furiously every time they fly by until she successfully scares them away). Meanwhile my Golden Retriever is eating all of the black ants that wonder by. I remember as clear as if it was yesterday, sitting in my kitchen last year in mid-May and feeling sorry for myself because it was cold...
