(That's a quote from the movie Fern Gully)

I saw my eye doctor last month and she gave me a prescription for new glasses. My eyes had been bothering me for quite a while, so I kinda figured I might need new ones. They are bifocals. I also have middle-distance glasses, but I broke the right bow off on them several months ago and have been using my bifocals and looking through the reading part at the bottom, but I think that was part of the reason my eyes were bothering me so much.

So, anyhoo, I took the prescription to the eye glass place in WalMart on Monday and had them fix the bow on the one pair and gave them the prescription for the other and picked out new frames. Total of $210. I brought the fixed pair home that day and have been so happy. But today, I picked up the new pair of bifocals and now I'm in heaven! I can see!

To add icing on the cake, a few weeks ago, my television suddenly went snowy while I was trying to mute the sound. It stayed that way, so I finally called Time Warner on Wed. and the guy came out yesterday morning to fix it. Seems that while I was trying to mute the t.v., I accidentally hit the 8 button on the t.v. remote. It needed to be on 3. He also fixed me up with a HD box, so NOW I have clear, HD t.v. AND new glasses to see it with! I'm in 7th heaven!

I had an appointment with the ophthalmologist this afternoon. It's located at the big medical center where I see three of my other doctors. Of course, all the handicapped spaces were taken, so I had to hike a half-mile to the building. When I signed in, you had to put your name and the time of your appointment on the paper. I saw above me that at least 3 other people had signed in for a 1:30 appointment. No biggie, I thought, there are two other doctors in the office. Oh, no! She was the only one there. So I spent most of my time sitting waiting.

After the assistant took me in to do a quick check of my eyes and do the glaucoma test, etc, she had me sit in another area. There was a couple, probably in their 60's sitting there. I sat down on the other side of the end table with the magazines. I closed my eyes and almost dozed off when he started belching. All of a sudden, banjo music started playing, loudly. It was her cell phone. She couldn't get it out of her purse and the caller hung up. Then she belched. Then he farted. I kid you not. I sat there for all of ten minutes. If I had felt better, I would have been biting my lip to keep from laughing.

Finally I got to see the doctor. My eyes are fine, but I do need new glasses. She gave me a prescription and I'll get that filled at Walmart next month. I'll be much cheaper.
