New toys

I remember when my proudest possessions were my 1970 Cougar, and my newly installed cassette deck with tapes of the Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen, Siouxsie and the Banshees. Now its my MP3 player (I refuse to pay the price for an Ipod) and my Laptop. That's it - two toys I use on a regular basis and couldn't be without.

But lately the tools of old age are creeping into my repertoire. Know what these two items are? I didn't - not the first one anyway. I never really needed to know what a foot rasp was. I have nice feet, they look great in sandals for the most part. Until now, as a result of my age and of wearing open backed shoes for years (even in the winter) my heels have come to need the aid of a rasp. Of course I have always known what an cold pack is, but now I have intimate knowledge of applying it daily. Although the chiropractor has helped I am still having issues with muscle spasms on a daily basis. *sigh*

A rasp??? Nope, I don't know that one. Does it shave away all the dead skin? Maybe I should get one-- my heels get very hard, especially in the summer.
