Terry has her second cataract surgery this afternoon at the Kutryb Eye Institute in Titusville. She is really looking forward to getting it done and then for her vision to stabilize in both eyes. She tried taking the lens out of her eyeglasses on the side that she already had done, but it was still too hard for her to focus well.
Then she will have a follow-up appointment tomorrow morning, and after that we’re done with doctor stuff for a while. I have an appointment with my sleep doctor on the 21st to see how things are going with my CPAP machine, but that’s just a formality since everything seems to be working just fine.
Once we have that out of the way, we plan to take a trip up to Alabama to see our son Travis and his wife Geli for a few days. They have some projects up there that we are going to help them with, and Terry plans to take advantage of their generosity and bountiful garden to get herself some fresh vegetables. Travis thinks the new chicks they got a few months ago are about to start laying, so he also said I will be able to have a lot of fresh eggs and honey while we are there. Throw in the fact that they live out in the country, and there’s room to do some target shooting, and who knows? We just might stay there until they kick us to the curb. Or at least until the damn rooster attacks me again. 😊
Meanwhile, here on the home front, for some reason, we both felt worn out and didn’t get a lot accomplished yesterday. I did a little bit of writing, but I wasn’t happy with it and deleted the few paragraphs I got done. It doesn’t happen often, but some days the words just don’t flow, and I know from experience that there’s no use trying to force it. Instead, I sat in my recliner and watched a couple of shows I had recorded about the Great Depression era, which will factor into my next Tinder Street book. Then I took a little nap and woke up a few minutes before Terry had dinner ready, which were delicious chicken chimichangas.
And that was about the extent of my day. Nothing to see here folks. Move along.
And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.
Thought For The Day – It’s easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than to think your way into a new way of acting.
