Thank God Almighty I Can See At Last

Today is Teacher's Day in Mexico.   We got up early and went to Toks for breakfast.  The place was packed.   Stopped by the hospital to see a friend's mother who has a brain tumor and not doing well.   More on the IMSS hospital another day. 

On the way home I suggested we stop by Costco.   As we walked in we passed the optometry department.  I had mentioned before that one of my brothers had contacts for reading and I had really wanted to see how much they were.  Well guess what?  

They gave me a couple of tests and gave me a free pair of disposible contacts that last for a month and I don't have to take them out at night.  The only thing I can't do is swim under water without goggles.   I can't believe how well I can see.  I keep wanting to put on my glasses but I don't  have to.  This is the first time in years I can use my laptop without seeking out my glasses.  I have to go back next Saturday so they can take them out and relubricate them and they are good again.  After that I make my decision.   Free, can you imagine that.

BTW, any bloggers out there having problems with SiteMeter?  My hasn't registered anything for two days now.  I know that blogger was down but something is not quite right. 


  1. Good deal on the contacts! I asked about them but was told they would not work for my eye problem.

    My Sitemeter seems to be working fine. It shows a history for every day.

  2. Wow that is great news about the contacts. Kevin will have to look into that when we come back down next fall, maybe they will work for him.
