EVEN IF YOUR NAME IS NOT GEORGE WATCH OUT FOR THAT TREE!

Good eyesight is precious. Just try losing it to be convinced. I can speak from personal experience. I am blind in my left eye and struggling to maintain what eyesight I have left in my right eye,. I won’t bother explaining what all is going on. I will simply say it is something I inherited from my mother’s side of the family. As part of my eye care I have to get an injection of a very expensive medicine in my right eye once a month. Each time I go to the eye doctor my eye gets dilated which, of course, makes for blurry vision and the need for sun glasses when out in bright sunshine. Two days ago I had another eye doctor appointment. For the very first time I rode my tadpole trike to the appointment rather than go by car and having a designated driver. It worked out great although certainly my vision was considerably impaired on my return trip home. Yep, I was thoroughly enjoying myself riding along when I hit a curb I didn’t … indeed COULD NOT see and flew up into the air. It was not only embarrassing but I was quite concerned about my trike. A bad bump like that by all 3 wheels could cause serious damage. As far as I know everything is okay. Just a few blocks later I hit another curb. It reminded me of the period of time I rode around with very poor vision due to cataracts. I could identify with Mark 8:24 where it is recorded “… I see men as trees, walking.” In fact, I still deal with this quite a lot. It is not as bad as this picture but in the distance I often times can not distinguish a person from a tree as I look down the trail ahead of me. Yep, good eyesight is so precious.

Watch out for that tree!

Trees are on my list of concerns as well as curbs, etc. My name isn’t George and I am pretty sure that most of you are not named George either. My thinking right now is … this might very well be a time when it would be good to let ol’ George do it. As they say … better him then me. So if your name is George … WATCH OUT FOR THAT TREE! Hey, even if your name is not George I would say the same thing to ya. I am pretty sure we all want to …

KEEP ON TRIKIN’

and

ENJOY THE RIDE!

FREE GIFT awaits you!

I am reminded of this song …

Hmmm, makes a guy consider having his name changed to Fred and let George do the drivin’.  Just watch out for that tree!

  1. As it turns out, today I had to have my eyes dilated too due to an exam by my eye doctor. Trying to figure out why my balance has been so off these last few months. Anyway, I can somewhat relate. I am very sorry to see that you have to go through this ordeal every month and I admire you for speaking of it in such a casual manner. Please do be careful with those curbs and trees in the future though. I think riding your trike that day was probably still wiser than trying to drive. Wishing you only smooth rides from now on and thanks for your informative messages here, I truly enjoy them every time.
