Busy Friday

Jilda and I both had our annual eye exams today and for a while, we were as blind as bats. We had lunch at a cafe across the parking lot from the eye doc which gave our eyes a chance to un-dilate. 

By the time the check arrived, I was ok to drive. Once home, we took a long nap. Our friend Joe Smith (odd name) has a saying – "Any off day without a nap, is a wasted day." We've embraced his motto and did exactly that.

The reason we napped up was because we had one great  nephew having a birthday party at the splash pad, and another was the king in a local presentation of Cinderella. 

It's fun spending time with kids. Just watching them makes me feel younger.


  1. I am blind as a bat these days as well, Rick. I think I need an eye doctor visit soon :)

  2. Eye tests require that the person to be examined should be accompanied by someone as the dilating eye drops cause blurring.
    I wish I could take a nap for an hour or two, but the moment I lay my head on the pillow I just go on sleeping the full seven hours, and that's not exactly what I had in mind. Anyway, sleeping is good and I like it.

  3. I know one thing for sure about Alabama, you two over there are making memories with and for those young kin-folk.

  4. I love your friend Joe's wisdom!

  5. I used to think I had great eyesight and that it would last since my joints suck along with my smell and hearing...but now I wear glasses and just got my second pair a couple of months ago. Nice to see(pardon the pun) how much you enjoy the young family members

    Your nieces & nephews will love you forever!!

  7. Naps are a staple for me. Late afternoon I just sink into my recliner and sleep. I feel refreshed after. Both boys look like they are having fun.

  8. Eye examinations are so much fun! Not! LOL! What a fun birthday party!

  9. I hate it when they put those drops in your eyes to dilate them. It seems we always do this on the brightest day of the year.
