HATE TO REPEAT--BUT TIME FLIES

THAT IT DOES!! LAST WEEK WE TOOK A THREE DAY TRIP TO CORPUS CHRISTI. IT IS SUCH A PRETTY PLACE, RIGHT ON THE WATER. OUR HOTEL WAS ON THE BEACH AND WHEN WE CHECKED IN THE GAL TOLD US WE HAD BEEN UPGRADED TO A SUITE. THAT WAS FINE WITH US!! TWO ROOMS, MICRO AND FRIDGE, TABLE, CHAIRS, PATIO.ALL WAS FINE---WE WENT TO THE TEXAS AQUARIUM, WHICH IS ALWAYS FUN. I COULD JUST SIT AND WATCH THOSE BIG FISH ALL DAY. WE HAD PLANNED TO GO TO A FANCY SEAFOOD PLACE FRIDAY NITE---BUT WITH MY USUAL SKILL I FELL IN THE BATHROOM. NOW HAD IT BEEN A BIG BATHROOM I COULD HAVE GOTTEN UP--BUT IT WAS SO SMALL THAT JERRY COULDN'T GET THE DOOR OPEN TO HELP. FINALLY I WAS ABLE TO SCOOT OVER ENOUGH TO LET HIM IN. HE JUST KEPT SAYING HE WAS GOING TO CALL THE AMBULANCE, BUT I TOLD HIM I WOULD FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET UP IF HE WOULD JUST LEAVE ME BE. ONCE I GOT INTO THE BEDROOM BY ROLLING, SCOOTING AND PRAYING I WAS ABLE TO GET ON MY KNEES----WHICH I AM NOT SUPPOSE TO DO--AND HOIST MYSELF TO THE BED. NOT A PRETTY PICTURE AT ALL!!! BY THEN I WAS TOO POOPED TO GO OUT SO SWEET HUBBY WENT TO THE GAS STATION AND GOT US A DINNER OF PORK RINDS, CORN NUTS, FRIED CHERRY PIE AND COKE. DELICIOUS!!!!
I CAME OUT WITH QUITE A FEW BRUISES THAT ARE NOW TURNING YELLOW. I THINK EVERYTHING EXCEPT MY HEAD HIT THE FLOOR. THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT.

I'm so sorry to hear that you fell. Hope your soreness wears off soon. I used to go on day trips to Corpus. Sometime to the Dog Races, that ship tour (can't remember the name right now) or the Aquariam.
