Blind Man Writing

Posted on

Shabbat morning rolls peacefully around, albeit a bit wet.  The winter rains have been frequent, but gentle, causing greenery to thrive, but not flooding the creeks.  A quick scan of the newsfeed yields the expected posturing of politicians and fawning pressies, but little in the way of useful information.

A Shabbat breakfast of eggs and turkey sausage muffins, and a cheese danish worked well.  Mama feral cats have a new litter, but they haven’t brought them out for viewing yet.  We just get little peeks at them under the broken skirting around the house.

So I sit back and muse.  An election is won, I can go back to peckish resistance to everything they roll out.  It sort of suits my style anyway, and the new administration is an easy one to denigrate.  A target rich environment, one might say.  But that is fine. I want to return to my banal coffee posts and musings.

I am nearly blind now, and I don’t know when the doc is going to let me go for cataract surgery.  I hope it is within my allotted life span. I think next week the gentle inquiries will end and I will go into full jerk mode.  It seems to work better than meekness.

So the days roll by. The days are rapidly lengthening, and we may miss a hard freeze this year. I may do a little mowing Sunday if the weather permits.

Good morning!

    I love your “banal” coffee posts and musings. So hopefully you continue writing (says the woman who barely writes but is trying!). I also hope you get your cataract surgery soon and if you have to go into full jerk mode, bring your phone and make a video of that. I would like to see my favorite curmudgeon in full jerk mode haha!! ❤

      Most of my family try to pretend they don’t know me when I go full jerk … 😛

    Ah, mowing. I won’t be doing that for a while yet. As for your eye surgery, the gift of sight is precious…. if jerkiness is called for, then jerk.

      Usually I don’t get good results with jerk mode, but the do remember my name.

        And that’s half the battle.

    Rusty, if full jerk mode is what it’s going to take to get your eye surgery then have at it. I understand wanting to maintain “gentle inquiries,” but sometimes they are lost on certain people. Just know you have the backup team in your corner. 🙂

      I have a hard time looking like Rambo these days … got to be careful lest they trot out the “Big Nurse” with her needle …

    You need to be published.

      … yeah. I can’t figure out why book publishers aren’t tearing down my door to get me signed.

        LOL! Not in ages … I did actually get some newspaper items published. But truthfully, writing up to publishing standards take a lot of time and effort. These days I simply don’t have the ability …
