Today’s savings: The cost of orthopedic surgery

This is a suggestion for those of you who use canes or walkers to propel yourselves around in this world. There are seven steps that lead into my mobile home and they are painted dark brown. I have painted a white edge on the top and front edge of each stair. White tape will work just as well and will enable the person coming or going to see where each step ends or begins.

This is probably not a money-saver, but it may be a bone-saver.
