I Spy With My Little Eye


I’m going to get my chance to pace the poop-deck, (Heh, Heh, I said poop 😆 ) and do my best pirate impersonation.

When eye wrote of having an impending eye operation, eye expected to be given a couple of weeks warning, so that we could adjust our sleep schedules.  We are unlike most retirees, staying up late partying reading, and sleeping in.

Eye got 93 hours – less than four days – notice.  A lovely tech named Olivia (Suddenly eye’m surrounded by Olivias.) called, at 11:30 AM, Thursday, January 3rd. to say that eye had surgery scheduled for 8:00 AM, Monday, Jan. 7th, and to be at the hospital by 6:00 AM to register.

It was bad enough getting the wife to a local hospital by 6 AM for her two knee surgeries, but this hospital is an extra hour and a half drive away.  We’ll have to be ready to leave by 4.  I might as well just stay up. I could peacefully sleep through the operation, but the wife would need sleep to drive me home.  Then I need to be back at the same hospital by 7:30 the following morning, for assessment and removal of my pirate eye-patch.

Eye’m posting this note a day ahead of my normal schedule, just to give you the heads-up that I threatened promised.  Just after midnight, eye’ll click publish on my regularly scheduled A To Z Challenge.  After that, eye may not post for a few days, or a week.

Eye’ll see you here soon…. I hope.   😎

      Thank you! I took a pair of glasses in to my optometrist for repair yesterday. The tech told me that they will receive almost immediate electronic report of the results, including whether I’ve been a good or bad patient. (Do bite marks count?) I may get a chunk of coal next Christmas. The injection should stop the crying…. but what about the whining? 😳


  3. Good luck, Archon. Hope all goes well – both with the surgery and with the drive.

      Thanx! We’ve had this car for almost 3 years, and T drove it for the first time Friday, and again yesterday, for practice. I drove down and back for the initial examination, and will drive down again tomorrow. T handles the car well enough, but has some problems about where she is, and where she’s going. We may accidentally come to visit you. 😉


  4. Eye will be thinkin ’bout ye Archon. Eye hopes ye gets ye some rest and yore eye is better soon! 😉
