We failed to get in a walk or take any pictures but we did go shopping at Walmart and hit up Lawlers for baked potato day. Yep lunch and supper from one potato. Sure was good too.
The call that the glasses had arrived came in and away we went to gather them up. At the Vision center the OFM was excited to get to put the new glasses on. Then he decided they must be playing a joke on him since the prescription seemed to have nothing to do with his needs. But the tech took the glasses into the shop and checked the lenses. Sure enough they matched the prescription the OFM was given by the Eye Center in Huntsville.
Now what? The tech and the OFM decided that the lady of well proven prescription accuracy should take a look at the OFM's eyes and see what she comes up with for a correct prescription. Sounds like a good idea since she has nailed the OFM prescription twice before.
She wanted a copy of the records from all the treatments at the Eye Center before she does the exam. So now we have an appointment for mid day Thursday to start on getting a look at the prescription she recommends. What a mess!
However the OFM now will not be leaving Decatur until he gets some decent eyesight for traveling. But another change is in the air developing. As many folks have said to the OFM you have already been every where you wanted to go and done everything you wanted to do at least twice. Well it is more like four times and the OFM is having trouble getting too excited about being anywhere he has had numerous visits at. His ability to fall nowadays is also a factor that keeps him in non-difficult terrain.
Then when we were doing some get ready stuff the last few days, the OFM was having noticeable trouble with his balance. From the two falls inside the Castle last summer we have learned the important lesson that single and old travelers need to be extra careful about getting injured. Due to the glasses fiasco the OFM has time to consider other options for Rving. With the big winter storm coming in during the next few days he decided to just re-up for another month here. If the glasses mess doesn't clear up we could be in a big mess over the eyesight.
So for now and the foreseeable future we are still stuck in Decatur, Alabama waiting for spring weather and eyeglasses. The possibility of making this a hub for cloverleaf travels in the future is very real. We have not ran around in the Great Lakes areas and the areas north of our location here in Alabama. Hmmm.
Pretty much everything depends on how well the OFM recovers. Time will tell us what we need to know. In the mean time we will continue trying to have tooooo much fun doing whatever we can.
