PPF 6/19/20

 Hi Everyone!

Before I even get started I have to tell you I am so tired I could sleep right at my desk. Up early to take care of things and then head into Eugene for an eye doctor apt. (100 miles one way) The road to town is dangerous. We have several fatal wrecks in the summer time.  Today was no different. A Century Link truck decided to make an illegal left turn but there was traffic coming so he had to stop. The 2 cars in front of us almost collided into him but managed to pass him in the inside. We had come to a full stop and Mr. M had his foot on the brake to alert the truck behind us. He was coming so fast that we knew this was the end. MR. M. pumped the brake and then decided to move. He saw that the truck was moving the same was we were so Mr. M. adjusted. The truck went off the road to on our left and he managed to stop inches from a tree. I rolled down my window as did the truck driver and asked if he was OK. He said, "Yes, but what the hell?" Century Link was still sitting there seemingly oblivious to what has just transpired. We made sure the guy off the road was OK and could start is truck to get out of there and then we passed Century Link on the left. If the truck had hit us I would not be here to write this blog.
We made a stop at Lowe's. Not many people in there and everyone with masks and being carful of distance. Then to the eye doctor. Very clean, everything sanitizes as it is used. I was happy. Sooooo my right eye has lost so much sight from a cataract that I will be having surgery on July 7. We talked about my previous surgery and the scaring on my eye. Of course this doctor can't give me any promises and I didn't expect any. We are just hoping for the best. Sooo wish me luck and send positive energy for that. I was really shocked at how much sight I have lost. I knew I was having problem but wowow.
So no new art for Paint Party Friday. I hope you don't mind seeing some old things and a bit of how I draw.









 

 


Have a great weekend!
