Yep, I was out waking Emily (the dog is no longer in the bag) and slipped on a stretch of un-attended side walk that was a solid sheet of ice camouflaged by a fresh snow flurry pack. Landed right on my left hip and am on blood thinners. I was scared for a bit and hobbled home but noticed no swelling or bruising in the hip. Actually, playing the horn for those couple days of painful recovery helped keep my mind of the pain. So you can look at trumpet practicing as a form of anesthesia.
