We Already Knew That

Thank you to the people who made blog comments, wrote on Facebook, or sent me e-mails hoping my eye was going to be okay and there was no serious damage to it after I poked it with the pair of scissors on Friday. By the time I woke up yesterday, it was still very red but not as sore. It just felt like I had some grit in my eye, and I kept putting drops in all day long. By evening it was still not perfect, but much better.

Three different people who wrote blamed Miss Terry for what happened and said she should know by now that I need adult supervision at all times. One actually said he believed there was probably a case for idiot neglect on her part.

We already knew that I need adult supervision, but in Terry’s defense, she can’t be everywhere all the time. Occasionally she needs to sleep or go to the bathroom, and just like having a pet monkey in the house, it doesn’t take me long to get into mischief. Did she say monkey or ape? Either way, you get my drift.

In other news, I wrote about 2,500 words in my new Tinder Street book yesterday and then printed out six or seven more chapters for Terry to edit and proofread before I send them off to Judy and Roberta to go through a second and third time.

When she wasn’t trying to keep the dog and cats from getting into trouble and hiding sharp things from me yesterday, Terry made some delicious roast beef pasties for dinner. They are another one of my favorite things that she whips up in the kitchen and acts like there’s nothing to it.

Today I have an appointment with Doctor Thomason at the Spine Center in Tuscaloosa to get nerve blocking injections in my back. I’ve had these before and they help for a short time, but they are not a long-term solution. However, Medicare says we have to jump through these hoops before they will authorize another RF ablation, which did help me before. I’ll take any relief I can get.

Congratulations Patty Richardson, winner of our drawing for an autographed copy of Callie And Natalie’s Dutch Family History by Darlene Miller. When nine-year-old Callie and her five-year-old sister Natalie go to Pella, Iowa with their grandmother they wear period dresses as they learn about their fourth, fifth, and sixth great-grandparents, who arrived in Pella in 1847. Other true Dutch stories are about more great-grandparents who immigrated in the early 1900s. Enjoy their experiences as they see, hear, and taste “all things Dutch” as they travel through Pella.

We had 44 entries this time around. Stay tuned, a new contest starts soon. Note: Due to the high shipping cost of printed books and Amazon restrictions on e-books to foreign countries, only entries with US addresses and e-mail addresses are allowed. After 30 days, unclaimed prizes revert back to the drawing pool for a future contest.

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. I have two questions. Has this really become an  issue? And if so, why isn’t it an Olympic Event?

  1. it’s called a scratched cornea – they(it) can easily get infected and a good doctor would insist that you take an antibiotic eye drop

  2. Just a thought to share…..I don’t think believe Terry is to blame at all for your behavior. Talk to a doctor…..in determining whether an adult is competent the bar is often pretty low. As it has been explained to me, individuals are often considered competent enough and are allowed to make bad decisions. But then that seems obvious more and more as I listen to the news.

  3. Your beef pastries look much like empanadas and I bet they taste as good. Glad your eye is better. Take care of them.
