Fixed Up Eyeballs... Burning Metal... and Crowded Places...

Well so far so good... I guess... the contact lenses I'm set up with are the left/weak eye close up, right/dominant eye far vision... and I found, at least early on, that if I cock my head a touch... stuff comes into focus a bit better... so... I guess I look like a bird... what with my head bobbin' around trying to focus on things. :)

But... it's already so much better then my glasses sittin' so high on that beak that I'm lookin' out from under 'em!

Now... if I can get the puttin' in and takin' out to run a lil' smoother I'll be good... Pokin' my finger in my eye until the back of my head bulges... and still havin' a lens stickin' to the end of my digit when I pull it out... has got to improve! :)

As always... life has a way of gettin' in the way sometimes... This has been one time, I miss my shop... Had the rig been there... the job would be done already... Guess, when you're using borrowed space and tools, it's not too polite to whine very loud huh? :)

I thought we'd have the shock mount rework/repair done up last night... but got obstructed by the lack of a torch... the guy that was gonna bring one by got held up having to work late... Not ME! :) so... I'll do the cuttin' today, and try not to burn the rig down :) and tonight we'll  burn the mounts in place.

Hmmmmmm.... grumpy old geezer... crawling around under his fifth wheel parked out in the street... with an acetylene torch... knockin' off bits and pieces... sounds like a script for the five O'clock news... don't it? :)

The kids schedule should break free here in a week... so we'll get to movin' around the area a lil' more... and start publishin' some fresh photos... what with bein' able to actually see what I'm lookin' at so much better! :)

Mostly, this is a pretty quiet month... outside of... the fact that, Denver ain't quiet! I truly don't know how folks can live in town for any length of time... I'd pop like a blister if I didn't see the end of this particular tunnel... Between the barkin' dogs, wailin' sirens, and people belly to butt, with All of 'em, in such a gol dang hurry... all the gol dang time... sunrise till end of day...  I'd lose it in a rushin' hurry...

So... I'll just keep on the small list of chores I had for this time... and count myself lucky that I'll be back in that empty Far Country in short order!

LOL I will be watching the news. My contacts had a tint which made it easier to put in... Glad they are working for you!! make for an easier ride I'm sure (I have never been on a bike before - scary true)...

Only if the rig goes up in flames or if one of neighbors thinks you're trying to blow up the neighborhood... The latter is more likely since you're in the greater Denver area. Someone did try to firebomb a local mall with less propane than you have on the rig.

Good luck with the shock remount...

Adios!

I never really could get used the two different contacts. But didn't have any problem putting them in. I had to close one eye to see far and the other eye to see close and never could see in the middle. People always thought I was winking at them. ;)

Don't burn down the house. Even if you are stuck in a city. yuck
