Well it’s another rainy morning, up at 04:30am, coffee with Donna, then she was off to the truck company at 05:30am. Adam was up at 06:30am and then off to school at 08:15am. My son Andy volunteered for the grocery run I was going to do this morning and is gone to the store.
Sam’s trip to the Eye Doctor went great, he had put it off and had not had an exam since 2004. After starting his diabetes pills his doctor told him his vision might change and it did, he could pass the DOT eye test without his glasses. The Eye Doctor confirmed that with the medication and lower sugar level his eyes are more relaxed and his vision is now 20/30 instead of 20/60. In the overall scheme of things this a a big improvement without surgery. He still prescribed a new pair of glasses with bifocals since I will still need help with reading, but he said driving with just regular sunglasses would be fine as it won’t strain my eyes, My old glasses were actually twice as strong as I needed and that is why I was seeing better without them for driving. He did a thorough exam of my eyes for any signs of cataracts and glaucoma and said I have no signs of either, just a little yellowing inside which is normal for my age. best yet I got out of there for $80 dollars for the exam and the new pair of glasses. Donna’s vision plan covered it and anytime i can save a few bucks I am a happy man.
After posting a question relating to adding links to other blogs I mention in mine, Cindy from FULLTIMING IS A CHINESE FIRE DRILL , Al from THE BAYFIELD BUNCH, and Rick from RICK & PAULETTES RV TRAVELS all were kind enough to send me instructions on how they do it and walla it looks like it will work. Thanks all of you for your help, and patience. I am still even after 74 posts a new guy in the blogger sense and I truly appreciate all the help I can get.
How about some Model train pictures, sorry girls I don’t know how to knit or weave, so you can bail if you want.
Since last winter the club I belong to has been adding lights to buildings and scenes and added a dimming feature to the overhead lights in the club room to be able to try to replicate nigh time a little better. I think it is turning out really good. What do you think?

I haven’t been scheduled for a trip with the bus again this week so I may be re-retired and not know it yet. If that’s the case it will give me the resolve to try to get this place sold and the stuff gone that we won’t need and then maybe we can start a new life. That’s it for now, Be safe out here, Sam & Donna
