I went on a Mystery Trip with the Senior Group today. A Rich and Famous trip. I was so lucky Rachel and Aria took me to Bethesda. We started the trip on Summit Ave here in St Paul where lots of rich people built huge houses including the Govenor's Mansion. Then to Minneapolis to Boom Island for a cruise on the Mississippi where lunch was served. Back to St Paul to Central High School which has two flights of cement steps to get to the second floor. I took an elevator up but since this was a Seniors trip there was lots that used the elevator so on the way down I decided I could do the stairs. About the 2nd or 3rd step from bottom I fell. I held onto the bannister with my left hand and swung across the cement at the bottom with with right knee and side. A girl offered to help me up and of course I said no I'm fine. Then another girl offered and I realized I wasn't fine. So they were trying to budge me and a boy helped from the front and two from the back. They did get me up and the girls helped me to the bus. I did think one of the three leaders should have come and checked on me. Thankfully Dawn picked me up from Bethesda and even went into the library to pck up 4 books that were ready.

    Things like that happen when we least expect it . Glad to hear that nothing is broken and the soremess and bruising can begin to heal. It does surprise me that the people in charge didn't seem interested. Seems to me that would be a way to evaluated places to go on field trips and what the possibilities of seniors having difficulty manuvering steps do to depth or constuction of stairways.
