Southern Arizona has cooled off a bit. It only got up to 61* here today. The winds have been blowing like a leaf blower here also. Recently plowed fields are redirecting the soil about a half mile further south. Hopefully the winds will calm by morning. I need to get down into the battery pit. That’s nearly impossible with high winds. My head is at ground level when I stand on the pit floor - just where the sand blows into my eyes and hair. YUCK!

Well it appears it got colder further south than expected. Result is more sleet and soow and less freezing rain in my area. Now if I can just get Richard to come over and help me clear my driveway then I can go to the state approved gathering point aka WalMart where you can walk around and visit with others enduring this Arkansas Blizzard!

Of course there won’t be any Walmart employees there, they all called in unable to get to work, BUT, everyone else will be in there walking around and visiting!

Well, I'm back in the area (19 hour 3 minute ride, birdies are pooped), so I'll keep my distance for the next week or so...see you two soon though I hope!
We will welcome your visit Monday or thereafter. Don't be too early. I've been sleeping 10 to 12 hours a night. Something that's odd for me.

My hope is that you have no symptoms. Feel better soon!
Our test was an at-home test purchased in Knoxville, TN purchased by our GD. Tired, sleep a lot, some coughing, and no high temps. About ready to end my quarantine.

Cataract surgery, right eye, yesterday. All went well. Left one will be done in about 4 weeks.

Everyone stay safe and warm.

Surgery was a cake walk. Only thing felt was the solution, then the gel they put in before surgery. A very mild sedation to maintain calm, but don't thin I really needed it. Awake the whole time. All you see is 3 lights. The two doctor's eye lights and a third light for general illumination. Don't feel a thing.

Gave me a clear plastic shield to wear the rest of that day and night. Next day it was off and only put on at night. Guess is to keep from accidentally rubbing eye while sleeping. Night shield is for 1 week then discontinued. Three different eye drops 3 times a day diminishing each week for 4 weeks.

Earlene had both hers done last year. Doesn't need glasses for distance, only reading.

Medicare will pay for the standard lense, about $1000 in fees. Astigmatism lens is $2000 more and Bi-focal $3000 more and medicare will not pay for those.

If you are seeing "star-bursts" when looking at oncoming headlights, get it done!

So far I’ve just used the close eyes method to deal with those star burst.

As they like to say on TV; GOOD ANSWER

The thing that got me was how much brighter everything was (except Wayne) once the procedure was done on both eyes.

If and when we get back to Kanuckistan Denise will be going in for her surgeries.

Have departed Shara and Dwayne's driveway and are now headed slowly to California. The tire repair place work went way slower than we thought it would. The slow leaks were attributed to a leaky valve stem and a bad rim. A bit costly but the work was done well. Both sets of rear duals should be leak free for the duration.

Met up with Kytyn and her husband for supper again. Nice to keep running into Mutants as we travel. Will run into a bunch more when we get to Yuma when we get there.

We had a great time with Dwayne and Shara and it was educational watching him circumvent issues with stuff he was repairing. We will be headed for California soon.

Thanks to the Lewis family we have met quite a few people in Quartzsite. Nice to make friends as you travel.

Speaking of friends; Barb we are only two stops away from being parked near Notta Ranch. The work will continue when we get there...

You might want to consider getting bifocal lens implants. I did back about 17 years ago and I know no longer need glasses for reading other than the tiniest print. Like that on non-prescription medication bottles. Back then they were $2400 each and of course Medicare won’t pay for them. I’ve probably saved that much by not having to buy reading glasses and not having to go find the damn things when I need them.
