Things were going to plan, slowly but in the general direction I had laid out. My two setbacks are both health related. One, I need to lose the rest of my teeth and Two, I have to see the eye doctor. Not only can I not see as well as I used to, but I can barely read print, or my phone display, or the micro wave display. I have been using big letter tape measures and magnifiers to work around the problem. It came to a head last night, when driving I realized I couldn’t see where I was going. I was gauging/guessing my position by shadows in the dark stretches. All while going 65 miles per hour. Worse, I realized I was using the high beams and was still having trouble. So far the vision hasn’t interfered with the boat build. It is on track and schedule.
The first Doc tells me I’m almost legally blind and sent me to another Doc in about 2 weeks. I figure about the worst that can happen is that I’ll get disability. No crying or drama here. I’m pissed off that this will postpone my kayak trip. At least I can see enuff to ride the river. Yee Haw.
