Jeepers Creepers, Where Didcha Get Those . . .

It’s back to w*rk today, but yesterday we spent a bucket full of money.  We went to the eye doctor that we went to when we lived in Harbor Springs to get our “peepers” checked out.  Doctor Turcotte was the best optometrist that we’ve ever had anywhere.  Since it’s been almost three years since we’ve had our eyes checked, we figured it was time.  As usual, Dr. Turcotte took the time to ask all the pertinent questions about our vision and do a thorough check. 

Being a professional, he wouldn’t say anything about our current lenses other than it wouldn’t have been his recommendation.  In my words, not his, “they” chose cheap low quality lenses that were less than a perfect fit for us.  “They” being Lens Crafters and Eye Glass World; just like anything, you get what you pay for, however, Lens Crafters were quite expensive. 

Our new glasses will be ready in about a week or so and Dr. Turcotte guarantees his work; therefore, the frames, the lenses, and all the adjustments will be perfectly fitted to meet our specific needs.  Being that we’ve gotten several pairs of eye glasses from him in the past, we know they will be right so the extra money will be worth it in the long run.  We’ve decided that since we are going to be in this area every year, we’ll just continue using him for our eye care.

Other than that, Judy worked on her baby mat project – it’s almost finished and ready to be shipped to grandchild number seven.  I did most of the household chores so she could focus on her sewing.  I, also, spent quite a bit of time reading in my Bible. 

I’ve been doing a chronological reading in the New Living Translation Bible, however, being that it is focused on the Old Testament at this time, I jumped ahead and read through the Book of Romans as well.  I can’t help but rejoice in the goodness of our Father and all His provisions for us.

Other than that, heat is the main subject of the local news.  It’s going to get up into the low nineties today and “they” are telling people of all the precautions that need to be taken.  Low nineties?  We eat that for breakfast!!!  But, I guess it’s all relative.  These people up here eat 5* for breakfast while we shiver like a dawg pooping persimmon seeds.

Well, it’s off to w*rk with us so we’ll catch you on the flip side.  In the meantime, 

May God Bless  - - - - - - - -

  1. Sometimes I wanna gag when I see the price of my yearly eye care and the glasses/contacts I need. However, seeing well and taking care of the only 2 eyes I will get seems to be a reasonable thing to spend good money on.
