I went in to pick them up. All was OK. The doctor talked me into progressive lenses....He did not however, tell me that it would be looking through a knot hole in a fence. I exaggerate a bit.
My eyes are bad. I am used to bifocals. He told me to get used to pointing my nose where I wanted to look...I thought he meant up and down. That, I could manage. It was side to side that I couldn't.
I glanced into the other lane of traffic and noticed that I couldn't read the license plate on the car to my right and just ahead....Maybe 20 feet.
I stopped at a store and whilst strolling down the aisle, I noticed that I couldn't see any of the merchandise clearly unless I turned my head and looked directly at it. Starting to not like what I am seeing....
I came home and called Walter at work. By this time I was testing out TV and subtitles....I could read those. I glanced at the bedroom door(about 5 feet from the TV). Fuzzy! Looked the other way at the closet door. Fuzzy!
Walter said that his were not like that. He encouraged me to go back to the eye place.
I think that my eyes are at least twice as bad as his...All this mini-ing has taken it's tole.
Maybe the problem is because my eyes are so bad.
I took his advice and went back straight away. Long story, less long. They were very nice and are replacing the fancy lenses with plain old bifocals with line. It will now be another two weeks. But I am much happier. I will at least be able to glance to the side without getting dizzy.
OK....Now about the little table. I treated myself to a stop at my favorite antique mall on the way home...I deserved it.
The table is a little smoking table from the 30s or so. Someone broke the ashtray that was part of the table at one time....No longer there. That's why it was under 12 dollars.
It jumped in my car and begged me to give it a new home. How could I refuse? I needed something to set tools and a drink on when I am working...It is perfect. Now if I can keep the
I am much happier now that I can see everything around me. It will take two weeks for the new ones, but I can wait...
Back to work, after a wasted morning.
See you tomorrow.
