Sweet Tiki, glad to see it worked out well for you.
I can relate to 'just falling over'. Last Friday coming home late I pulled in the driveway and went to put my right foot down but my shoelace had come untied during the ride and was caught in the pedal, so when I went to put it down didn't reach the ground, and my weight pulled me over.
I have nasty silver dollar sized wound and bruising on my knee, and a lessor wound on my right elbow.
I also know what you mean about pride.
Before I even looked at my wound I looked to see if any of my neighbors saw me hehehe.
