LOCAL MAN HEARS GOOD NEWS


It has been one week since I had cataract surgery on my left eye. Today I learned my vision using this “new” eye is 20/25. This is “REMARKABLE” plus. My brain is seemingly without memory of the first time I used my then new “old ” left eye, but I am sure the now experience of using my “new” left eye is a suitable stand-in for the missing memory. I would shout this good news from my roof-top if it were not for my dear wife’s proclamation:” Don’t you dare get on that ladder!” So, I will rely on this “news release” as a substitute.

Note to TV News Producers: Please do not double park your remote broadcast vans on my street. My neighbors will be pissed-off if you do.

I am 87 years old and married for 65 years. My wife passed away in 2016. I am a retired engineer and spent 35 years developing INS gyroscopes. I was a High School mentor in physics, a mountaineer, a model builder, a machinist and I have a degree in Physics. My interests include railroad history and photography, science history, cosmology, interesting people, and old engineering drawings. I place a high value on my friendships. I enjoyed my life and I am trying to look forward with a sense of anticipation and curiosity.
