Nice to see you are back in some of your heels! I have been (gasp) wearing black lace and suede sneakers lately but then it can get slippy here and my boots are not really made for snow and ice on stairs.
I feel for your bone chip. I had a chunk of the top of my right heel bone (talus) removed after I sheared it off in a racquetball tournament. I set my foot for a shot, but the rest of me moved forward. The surgeon was a runner so I told him to get a good night's sleep and treat it like his own ankle. A week after I had the cast off, I took a 3rd in a tae kwon do tournament. Couldn't run...so I had to stay and fight. I brought the trophy to my next follow up appointment.
Okay, the violet pumps...How long did you wear them and did it involve walking? As the seasons change I go from my flat mary janes to my half inch (vibram rubber) hiking boots and really enjoy the change in altitude. Hats (and heels) off to you if those are your usual attire.
So with the time difference your up ealry and I am getting ready to go home after a 12 hour day! Hey did I mention I work at Disneyland? I work M/F from 0400-1230 so you can catch me anytime then. If you want you can also email me at my work: Michael.Warden@Disney.com
Gottta finish some paperwork bye for now....MW
I read your wonderful A to Zee at the Sisters in Crime Forensics conference in St Louis Mo. Our packets included a copy of "Mystery Scene." Then I went to a shooting range and learned to load and fire automatic weapons. Just your typical 50th birthday events in America. Tomorrow it's poisons, toxicology and "use of force."
I'm new here on crimespace and am currently working on a cozy mystery set in Scotland. I've been trying to find out more about police procedure in Scotland. Would you happen to know of any resources for this? I've found a lot of information about the police in general but not much that's specific to how they process a crime scene, etc. I lived in Peterhead from 2001-2003 and usually make a visit back each summer. I'd be grateful for any help you could give me.
