This post was to be titled ‘i can see clearly now’ (because I have new eyeglasses), but last night was a www night. www=whatever the widow wants, and what the widow wanted was wine. Whew! To be fair, she came over at my request for coffee and to look at patterns. I brought out the wine towards evening…
The odd thing is that these aren’t really the colors I’m drawn to, but they make my eyes brighter, and they looked the best, and they are fun, so now they’re mine!
I don’t like going to the eye doctor. I always feel like it’s a test you can’t pass, is this better? or this?, well… they look about the same. Two years ago I was frustrated by all of this and squinted a bit, and when I did, I’d find one looked better. BUT when I got my glasses, I found they worked best when I squinted. And I couldn’t wear them inside much or I’d get dizzy. I thought it was an aging thing, but it’s because they weren’t correcting an astigmatism in the left eye (the squinting corrected it, so the correction wasn’t in the lens), and because they didn’t sit correctly on my face-too high. This time around I was certain not to squint, very honest about neither looking better and neither looking good, and I was careful to choose glasses that fit the bridge of my nose, and I am so far very happy with how I see out of the new glasses.

The girls’ auntie Bear tied a couple of days ago with Auden (this was planned), who is a largish, apricot standard poodle (I’m in love with his son, but sadly the son is nutless). I had a dream a few months ago that Karen had a litter of pups running around, and amongst them were a couple of red ones, so I’m wondering what color(s) these pups will be. Bear is a tricolor dog, you might not see it, but she is 1/2 border collie and 1/2 yellow lab! Here’s Bear dancing, her dad Tucker is the yellow lab, mom Kate is the border collie. (Tucker and Kate are my girls’ grandparents).
More dog pics over in my flickr set. The pups should be born end of the year and ready end of February, ~$500. Let me know if you’re interested, and I’ll hook you up with Karen. She has plans already to donate a couple of the pups as service dogs, one to a family with an autitistic boy, and another will likely go to school to be a service dog for a boy with cerebal palsy. She’s looking for somebody to foster that pup until it goes to school…anybody interested?
