I was going to blog about the fact that, if my parents were still alive, today would have been their 60th wedding anniversary.
But instead I am blogging about the sidewalks of Binghamton, NY. I do not intend to make Falling Friday a regular feature.
My spouse and I were doing our 1/2 hour exercise walk on the West Side of Binghamton tonight. Suddenly I tripped over an irregular sidewalk (there are a lot of those around here.) I couldn't recover, and I fell on my face. I came up spitting blood.
It could have been worse. I split my lip, have a bruised hand and shoulder, but all my teeth seem intact, and nothing is broken. So, this is not the end to a Friday that I had wanted. Now I hope nothing gets infected.
I also ruined the face of my watch and gouged some of my glasses, which I will have to get fixed.
So I will keep this short. Tonight, a simple soft meal. Tomorrow, I hope I feel better.
I still intend to do my "Civil War Sunday" but it may be a little simpler than I figured. I was hoping to go to the Owego Strawberry Festival tomorrow but I think I am just going to take it easy.
And find a different place to walk.
