Back and living with my Eye

Let me frankly admit that I was almost “down and out” when old Rip came round last week.  His invitation to go with him came when I needed it most; my Post Call of the Hills was done in a great hurry and we left soon after that.

 It was a nice break but also good to revisit “real life” away from the woes of this World.  Rip and I just talked and talked; in between we ate when we had the need for it and started snoring in mid sentence when the luxury of doing nothing overwhelmed one of us.

 But I felt rejuvenated when I returned this morning; the eye remains with me but I think that I have finally cleared the cobwebs of the mind and learnt how to cope with it.

 It’s become a great bore to repeat the story of my eye every time it comes up and I have therefore done a Post on the full details that may provide comfort to others in similar situations.  You may read it one click away right here in My Eye and I

 I will catch up with you guys soon.

    Welcome back, Ike, & I hope you can resolve your eye problem ASAP. I had 2 cataract operations last year after my left eye went completely blank on me in a period of about 2 months, so I feel for ya, man.

      Thanks Bob

      I have made the decision that it is not going to get me under; many other people have lived through worse afflictions and I am otherwise very healthy for my age. If the one eye holds steady for a few years I am OK.

      Lady BD emailed me that nice piece of you on Nam. It was good informative reading; it’s good to know you.
