just call me Grace--ful

Well, since the most the police have to do on the base is occasionally herd wandering lambs, I decided to cause some excitement last Thursday!!! While walking around the perimeter road with two little girls I am babysitting during Spring break, I fell and hit my head. More accurately--one of the little girls and I were skipping...she tripped and fell...and took me down!!! Because I was holding her hand, I could not break my fall and I landed on my forehead and nose. My forehead swelled up the size of a racquetball and my nose was bleeding and also very swollen. Stephen was on duty, so he saw me on the ground and came to my rescue!!!! The fire department came with lights and sirens---much to my embarrassment. I got to ride in the fire truck to the med center--OH BOY!!! I was released and given a lolly by the fireman:) I am fine. The picture does not do justice to the swelling and purple of my first---and hopefully last ----shiners!!!
