    Back in mid-May, I was diagnosed with a detached retina. Surgery was on June 1st. Fast forward to late November and new glasses prescription 4 or 5 weeks after cataract surgery. I picked up the new glasses last Monday. At first, I was disappointed.....hardly any improvement on old glasses. After wearing them for a day, I have noticed my left (Bad) eye was not having to strain nearly as much as before the new glasses. WOOHOOO! I also can see the computer and read much better. Far away sight is still kind of goofy, but improved. With luck, the eye will continue improving and I can get on with my life. This has been a tough 6 months! Thanks for all the good wishes from my friends here at the Monkey and Merry Christmas to all.

    Gog, yes. I can shoot. The doc said handguns are fine, .410 & 20 ga shotguns preferred, wait a bit for .12 ga and on .30 caliber +. Fishing is ok, too. The fish and wildlife folks stock our local rivers with trout during the winter.
