Any bifocal wearers on board? When did you notice your eyesight failing you? How many didn't need glasses until the tender loving age of say...40...shhhhhh...???
Well...I have gone from perfect eyesight to blurry vision since graduating from college in 1987. Darn those THICK nursing textbooks! Too much reading ruined me eyes...not to mention that thing they call "aging"...again...shhhhhhh...???
Finally had to give up the old lenses for a new pair two months ago. I didn't want the bifocals with the line in the middle of the lens, so I paid a wee LOT more for the new precision lens that has no visible line...so it looks like a single lens...
I am still having a difficult time adjusting to them however, but workin' on it.
If the print isn't MEDIUM sized print...or LARGER...gotta grab the glasses...I keep a pair of +2.00 lens in my bathroom and office, one pair that are prescription in my purse (use them at home too), and a pair of AOL's +2.00 computer glasses that have a tinted lens to protect my eyes from the glare, etc. of the puter screen. What's next??? Wigs??? False Teeth??? Artificial heart? Pacemaker??? Hormone replacement pills??? New hips??? Knees??? And...what happens when the ol' back is gone??? Have yet to hear about a back transplant being done. :chuckle Aint gettin' old a bummer??? NOT!!!
And....that darn gray hair that just won't stay away no matter how many times I order it to...Lady Clairol...take me away.
It's just a few strands but wouldn't you know they want to grow right around me forehead area.
Will soon have to make a few minor adjustments to the old bod...such as...keeping the joints lubricated, becoming best buds with Lady Clairol...keeping those boobs elevated with me support bra...I'm already walking to keep my legs looking youthful and the heart pumping strongly....eating dinner by candlelight to hide the wrinkles...just kidding...but it sounds like a good future idea when the wrinkles start building a map on my face...taking it slow, laughing and joking around a lot...rather have laugh-lines than frown-lines anyday. :chuckle
Okay...fess up here...what's your old age story???

Well...one things for sure...there's one thing I can still see very clearly...and don't need no glasses, either...it's when my hubby's walking towards me in the dark...but I can't say what it is I see, gosh darn it!
Shhhhhhh...be nice, Renee!
I will...I will...I will...
Anyhoo...never used an outhouse before, l.rae. Not a real one that is. Just those makeshift ones they have in the city parks and all. Now...as a teenaged girl...we had to wash laundry in one of those old fashion washing machines that you practically ended up doing all the work with your hands since you have to churn the laundry through those squeeze roller things at the top of the washer. Now what was the name of that kind of washer??? Anybody know??? Uhhhhhhhhh...I forget to mention a case of dementia as part of the aging process.
