Two different perceptions of color

 By Ted Grussing

Closing out... the weekend, my final day with two different perceptions of color and of squinting through glasses that do not work for me anymore. Curious to see how the vision will be next week, as the right eye which is being done in about eight hours will be close to where the left eye is now. Vision is markedly better in the left eye and both driving and flying without glasses is working well.

Had a wonderful rain this morning and the new contouring of the yard worked well draining the water off; the new roof didn't leak either and it was relaxing to lounge in bed for a little while sipping the morning espresso. One spent time on my chest and then retreated to the other side of the bed so I could enjoy my morning beverage. My mother never used to talk to anyone until she had had her first cup; I'm not much better. Corky and I had a very busy weekend with friends nonstop and she is probably looking forward to a little rest in the morning whilst I get my eye done.

While on the deck late Saturday afternoon I heard the unmistakable sound of a scrub jay; off the seat, camera in hand I went looking for him. He was perched on the fencing for my nonfunctional and barren garden and seemed to be scolding me for not being skilled enough to make something grow so he could eat it. Had my tomato plants grown as planned I might have had some tomatoes that would equal what our friend Pam brought us. She is good at everything in the garden and also her small vineyard of grapes.

Well, time for the last few bites of something to eat and drink until after surgery ... then Jim and I will be heading straight for the Starbucks in the Cottonwood Safeway.

Have a wonderful day and share your joy. Life is good ... smile
