When push comes to shove

from w
Yesterday I lost my spectacles - somewhere I'd put them down to read (without them) and they just disappeared! That's a real problem as I have to play music at a funeral tomorrow. I found an old pair, badly scratched, and the landscape looks foggy a bit from one glass.

So when push comes to shove - I had to see an eye clinic - go back to one I'd been to about fifteen years ago. Okay, okay, I am tardy about teeth and eyes, but this year I'm doing something about them both! Luckily I got an appointment this morning and went through the processes, but will have to see a specialist follow-up next month with maybe a problem that my Dad and sisters had in their senior years. And, I'll have to wait maybe two weeks for new specs. Not Palin style though. I'll have to lean into the music on the organ stand tomorrow and get the notes correct for the four hymns. Fortunately I don't use glasses for reading and the computer but mainly for crossing the road!

Anyway while I was waiting for the bus in Moorabool Street I took some photos mainly of the fan palms near the bus stand, then at home played around with them. I am very grateful for my eyes and very good vision facilitated by the help of those who work in the medical professions.

I'd freak out without my specs, Wendy. Good luck with the new pair. Is it hard for you to adjust to each new pair?

Yes - got to look after your eyes - lucky you not to need them for reading - I find it so inconvenient having to constantly put them on and off. My book is done - you can view it all at Blurb without purchasing - details on my blog.

The new glasses are spectacular - not in the look of them, but now I can see fine details two blocks away. Only problem is because they are transitional I will have to get used to seeing the pavement or floor as going uphill! I still take them off at the computer and for reading - out of habit.
