HAPPY VETERANS DAY
Thank a Veteran for your freedom.
We owe them everything!!!!!
I don't know exactly what makes a day really long, since they are all about the same time length, but yesterday was longer than usual. I suppose it's because I had meetings at the Elks starting at 6:00 pm. It's the expectation of driving in the DARK, not just on the way home, but now GOING TO also.
When I was much younger, I had one lousy cataract that caused blindness in one eye. It seemed to happen overnight. Since I was a dive instructor and really needed to see everyone's computers to make sure they had air to breathe, I required surgery.
Go Bionic they said ... get these special lenses and you will never need glasses again. They lied. I don't mind wearing the glasses at all, but the bionic lenses in my eyes are horrible when it comes to light at nighttime. I can see just fine, but they magnify light by 100.
You will see a small round headlight in the distance. I see a searchlight-sized blob of light that blinds me because of the concentric circles in my eyes. Sometimes when the light is just right, I can even SEE those circles. It's weird. Anyway, I just drive a little slower, like all the old folks I complain about, and I'm just fine.
I spent about half the day on the new Singer machine. I would say it's a Volkswagen compared to my Ferrari across the table. No offense to Volkswagen lovers, but it's a box of sheetmetal with four wheels and a big rubber band. All of a sudden it decided to wad up the thread on the bottom the entire length of a 54" seam.
And those SEAMS!! I followed the instructions exactly, spending the extra time to iron every one the exact correct direction. First I sewed these together .....
