wouldn’t have mattered in tht moment.  You and I would be equally vulnerable in that situation.

I don’t say this to compete but only to suggest that whenever possible, you  bring your husband or son along with you when you walk your dog.  Please don’t be lulled into a false sense of security and get seriously hurt!

Sorry about typos and two separate posts. Bad connection.

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

    That was a dominance test. That’s why women need men.

    Those boys were staking the sidewalk with their skateboards. Whoever moves first, loses. In that situation, I don’t move. It’s understood if they bump into me, there’s trouble. Women can’t do it.

    This is America…it’s not safe out there for most women! This isn’t 1950 anymore. Only a few women, like Maureen, know how to adapt to it.

    I was definitely vulnerable. It is also a pretty safe neighborhood with lots of walkers, so I was feeling a false sense of security. I do try to get someone to go with me, but since we all work different shifts (and frankly my husband is pretty lazy and selfish) it doesn’t always happen.
    I did have pepper spray (on my leash) and a taser (in my hand), but I didn’t realize they were up to no good until they hit me. Next time someone gets that close, I will be on the offensive.
    I do have to walk as I have an autoimmune disease and that is one of the few safe ways to get exercise for me. I try to do it at lunch, but if I have a meeting, that doesn’t work.
    I appreciate your thoughts and I was not trying to compete either.
    Thanks Maureen! Take care friend.
