We had a great weekend away, it was fun watching Andrew play football.
And it was heartwarming to see him taking praise from his dad, Brian for a game well played.
Marti’s Friday eye surgery went well, she needed a quick laser touch up on her lens from her cataract surgery last March. It is a normal thing for about 95% of people our age to have done. Now she is good to go.
Funny, my Monday eye checkup from my cataract surgery showed everything is looking good and I should schedule a laser touch up for about next May.
The touch up is because when the cataract and lens are removed from the eye, there is usually a few cataract cells left behind that are not apparent during the operation. About six months later, these remaining cells have multiplied and put a slight coating on the new implanted lens. A one minute or so zapping by a laser clears and permanently removes these cells from the lens.
We made it back to our workamping”home” and tried to see if the on line driver safety course was up and running after the government shutdown. It was and we both spent an hour of the six hour course last night and then spent five hours today to finish it.
At the end of each of the six sections is a quiz,
and then a final exam. You need to pass with an 80%. I got an 80%, Marti got an 84%. I told her since she is the better defensive driver, she now can do all the driving of the Journey.
She gave me the old “Stink Eye” for that comment.
After suffering through that six hour course, I feel the need to drive off a cliff if I ever have to take it again. I printed off two copies of my proof of completion certificate. One to turn in and one to keep for myself in case I have to prove I took it in the future.
So we now are able to drive the government vehicles here at Strom Thurmond COE. That is a good thing and a bad thing. I hear there are a couple of rangers looking for us to go out and do some more pin hunting!
