Gah! I thought I was the only one who could do that. I can find a two inch patch of ice and break my ankle while being dragged by a 23 pound beagle. My cleaning lady showed up a couple weeks ago sporting a huge shiner, she had a tripping accident similar to yours. The hospital asked all sorts of questions.....

Well, that was a silly thing to do. Any plans on making that a daily habit? Or are you just trying to meet up with a handsome young doctor? Surely therre is a cougar in town you could fix him up with.

GG, I am sorry to hear of your fall! I am glad there was nothing broken. Take care of yourself!

Probably won't check in again for the rest of the day or until it is gone.

Laurie, I found the hard way, that the brightness of the computer screen can acerbate the pain of a migraine. Fortunately, I have not had one in quite a while.

Taking a break for awhile from all the Christmas baking. We are making 10 dozen of 10 different goodies to be for sale in the cafe tomorrow.
