I saw ma doing this just now!!!! She was putting on sock over her sock!
She wears this real tight socks everyday to help the blood flow so that her legs will not swell so badly. It's a struggle to put them on; very tight. I spend about 3 minutes every morning pulling them up for her before dashing out of the door to work. Sometimes if I am late, she'll do it herself. She spends 30mins!
Anyway, back to the story why she has sock over her sock....she has to keep her tight socks and toes clean. So she pull old socks over the tight socks. Then she'll put her chubby legs into Lyn's ciplak crocs and she is ready to go to the garden.
