Thanks to my cousin, here’s a snap of a fox lounging on a ragtop in an office building parking lot. He says that she lives in/near the building in Fort Collins, Colorado, and has pups which are rarely seen.

As explained here: “This occurs when the foot or ankle rolls in (an inversion injury). When this happens a tendon that attaches a muscle to the fifth metatarsal can pull off a piece of the bone.”
This happened on April 29 and so far it seems to be healing without complications. I’ve been wearing a black walker boot cast thing as in the picture. It’s much better than an old fashioned hard plaster cast. It is removed to sleep and bathe and change clothes. And it’s not very heavy to walk around in. Stairs are kind of scary with it, though.
Last year I learned “intra-articular” – as in intra-articular fracture of the ankle.
This learning by doing has got to stop.
