I've said before that one fear I have is of falling. Falling as a child is fun. Falling as an adult, not so much. And falling when you're able to get senior discounts is just a nightmare to think about. Well, my fear came true early this week. I fell. If anyone asks what happened I just say, "Dumdassery." I made a decision, after a mental discussion with myself in my car, to go back into the house for something before I took off for a few hours of necessary shopping. Bad call. Should have listened to the other voice that said, "Nah, just drive away." I fell in my driveway and broke my ankle. My life is now consumed with pain medication and vegetating. It's an inconvenience and certainly not high on the list of world problems, but it was a stupid fall and I haven't forgiven myself. A fall on a foot that had been damaged in 2013 when I fell and tore ligaments. So I don't even know if the ligaments were torn again. Who cares? In fact, the break is better than a tear because it should at least heal in four to six weeks. A torn ligament can last a lifetime. Believe me, I know. I'm now just an inconvenience for others.
So scanning photos for now is on the back burner. I sit and watch. I'm very good at watching. I will be like these kids for awhile. I'll just plant my butt in front of the tv and wait to be entertained or fall asleep from the boredom.

I do wish I could see what they were watching. Hmmm…Howdy Doody? Popeye? Fury? Sky King? The Lone Ranger? Ohhhhh…Highway Patrol starring Broderick Crawford? Take your pick, but please don't make it a reality show. For that I'd have to break my brain.
