I'm Back...

...just updating y'all... all went well with my cataract procedure... the worst part was getting an I.V. started... was 'poked' 5 times... youch.  Evidently I have 'thick skin'... who'da thunk? (BTW, I'm STILL not 100% convinced that's Ginger in that pic... ...but for this instance, let's just say that it is...)

But the procedure itself went well... a bit odd, as you are definitely 'awake', just not too 'with it'... but they shine lights in the eye to be worked on, but 'soft color'... not as bad as it sounds. It was definitely not FUN, but could have been a lot worse...

With that, will have to 're-calibrate' my glasses in a few weeks, as the new lens they put in my eye is pretty well focused - weird how that works. The sight out of the eye is 'sharp', but still a bit distorted due to the detached retina... so can't really read too well with that eye, but should take some of the 'general strain' off of the one good one I have left...

Thanks to all for the thoughts and prayers... they worked!!!

Hope to get back to 'regularly scheduled programming' here by the weekend... it's been a bit hectic at work, as well as for my daughter, who is wrapping up a science fair project/exhibit, and is also taking some verion of the SAT tomorrow (for 10th graders, even tho she is only in 8th Grade... hmmm...) But she is a smart cookie, so should do well.

Hope all is well with everyone... and with that,

...KIG!!!

Doggie!!!

...at the request of that all-knowing, all-seeing, infinitely wise lady known as Mrs. Huey, who informed me of this whilst perusing FaceBook, I give to you...

...The Dancing Doggie known as Ginger Rogers!!!
video
...here's the scoop... or link...

Dancing 'Ginger Rogers' Doggie

In general, this pup is quite fond of the 'waltz', as best as I can tell... and her video placed on FaceBook has gone 'viral'! Hopefully the new home will be great for her, and the owners can play her lots of 'swing time' stuff!!! I am pretty sure Ginger would get a kick out of this, and knowing her fondness for animals, would be happy to know this one has found a new home...

Well, other than this - which may well have made the rounds on FaceBook's Gingery area, but I'll post it here for posterity as well - not too much happening in Hu-ville... ...well, except that I have cataract surgery next Tuesday... hopefully a pretty 'routine' deal... but messing with one's eyes is always a touch and go type of thing, even though I'm in REAL good hands at the UAB Callahan Eye Foundation clinic... one of the best out there!

I'll probably check in sometime 'post-op'...

And I plan on 'advancing' the 'GingerLIFE' project this weekend as well... still 'patching up' the covers, but should be ready to print soon... stay tuned...

Until then,

KIG, Y'ALL!!!
