Dag gone it if I haven't gone and fallen again! Slipped on ice that I did not see. It was hiding under that light cover of snow.

I felt the foot start to lose contact and for one brief moment I thought I might have enough momentum going to right myself.

Nope. Fell like a ten ton Lizzie crashing down on my left hip. I was too shocked to even scream. And it hurt like hell. There was no one around ...... always the first thought, "Did someone see!!!"....and only then did I wonder if I was hurt, really hurt.

I was able to walk it off, brush off the snow. I believe I was stunned. All in all, the arch on the left foot is pulled, my left shoulder is smarting and I am going to have a sizable bruise on my hip. But, I'm okay.

How much longer? This makes the fourth fall in less that a year. One of these days I'm going to go down and break something. I must stop this absurd hobby of mine!!!

I fall every time I go somewhere with a camera in my hand. That is what I get for being an Aquarian with a Capricorn rising. If I don't look where I am putting my feet it is all history! Hope you feel better soon- ouch!

Welcome to my world. Falling is far too common of an event for me, and I fear being stuck in SAS old lady shoes before I'm fifty.

Ever since I got my bifocals, I'm a fall waiting to happen. I' constantly tripping on things at foot level that my brain filters out because I can't see them clearly.

Isn't it funny how the first thing you do is look around to see if there are any witnesses?

Jayz, Mary, if you keep falling it's a damn fine thing you've developed those big bumpers you told us about a bit back.

Yikes!! That's my biggest fear walking early in the morning. Those icy patches on the road are treacherous. I've slipped, but I haven't gone down (yet). Better knock on wood.
