The Broken Ankle Chronicles: Day 34

Posted on


   We made it. My walking boot and I, that is.
   My wife and I had this trip to Edisto Island in South Carolina planned for months, and I wasn’t going to let a broken ankle stop us from coming.
   The first morning of our stay, we were greeted with torrential downpours. However, the clouds gave way to sunny skies in the afternoon and warm temperatures. We sat on the beach for a little over an hour.
   We have to leave early in the morning on New Year’s Eve, but any trip to Edisto, no matter the length and weather, is always worth it.
   The good news is, I should be able to go without the walking boot one week from today.

A shepherd in Nairobi was the first to see it. Within 12 hours, the entire world knew about it. The outlets of news and information services via television, radio and internet weren’t necessary for everyone to know something was different.

All one had to do was look up.

Earth had a new moon.

The Simpsons Tapped Out Addicts

Hey Howdy Hey I mean Gift Grabbers!

Snow has arrived in Springfield & is it just me or is anyone else have Déjà vu? Christmas looks a lot like Halloween (sort of).  Instead of the creepy mist, Ghosts, Gremlins and GOO, Christmas brings us snow, gift boxes, gift bags and gift cards (Geez..what’s with all the G words EA?!)  Confused yet?  Don’t be…as always the Addicts team is here to help!  We’ve got you covered, so that plus the 4 weeks you have to play the update should help you achieve all of the goals!  Let’s get right to it by breaking down the “game inside the game”.
