Sam and I traveled to College Station to dine with Aggie friends who graduated 55 years ago. The whole week was planned, but because I have only 10 days vacation, Sam decided to just go to the dinner Monday night. Walking toward the Hilton - from the parking lot - the pavement looked one level parking lot to fountain to under the portico. It wasn't. I stepped off the curb and hit the pavement. Totally stunned trying to decide how I went from upright to on my knees in milli-seconds...??? When I looked around and saw that the leading edge of the curb was painted maroon while the pavement itself was a shiny black. I thought - where'd that curb come from?!
My right ankle is sprained. A recurring injury left over from childhood. Although it has been years since I've stepped crooked and hurt myself this badly.
We headed to Austin Tuesday so that I could attend a webpage management class for work. Comparing ankle sizes that night.
Crossing the Colorado River on the way to downtown Austin for class.
January 2012 I was in Austin and sick - so could not walk the grounds of the Capitol. Sigh - once again I could not walk the grounds of the Capitol, but took photos as Sam drove by.
This is a shot from the fourth floor of the Texas Association of Counties where the training took place.
And this is my ankle...yes, it is bruised below, behind, and above the ankle.
