Closing thoughts

I know I said I’d be back on December 7, 2020. However, I’ve decided that this will be my last post until the new year. I had Cataract surgery on one eye on December 2 and the other eye is scheduled for December 16. As I sat down to do my posts today, for the next few weeks, I realized just how straining computer work is on the eyes. In reality, I’m trying to do my computer work with one good eye, which is now at 20/25 and the other eye is 20/800. Needless to say, my eyes are really tired and I’m getting a headache. If I’m going to do this right, now is the time to rest my eyes.

Happy Holidays

and

I’ll see you in the new year.
