It's a new year. Realizing that I am no t as young as i used to be and that the things I used to do may actually be dangerous at my age I decided to share what I hope will be helpful
Falls are dangerous but more so when we get older:
Recently a relative about my age decided that he would clean his gutters like he had done for the past 40 years without any issues. Well this time there was an incident, he slipped fell from his roof and passed away 6 days later. Also 2 weeks ...ago another relative decided to remove a broken tree limb by climbing up a stable tree, he slipped, broke 9 ribs and both wrists. Not a good situation.
It can happen to anyone but these two situations have me thinking more about personal safety and better decision making.
