Sndrea, welcome! What are you growing in your garden?

Kathy I will have to work on that. We have plenty of deer, but they don't seem to have any interest in eating children.

Do you know where a person could find a bear?

LOL Daniel!

Spud, I think if you can arrange for grizzly bears to carry off those little felons-in-the-making, it would be a warning to other potential little deviants,

I filed a complaint with the FCC Saturday, and expect to get results with that.  If I don't, there is another Federal agency I can file with, and if that fails, will file with the BBB.

I'm glad the large watermelon was too big for the little girl that was taking it, because it was almost ripe, and tasted good.  It was even heavier than I thought.  It was 27 pounds.

Kathy, I had both my lenses replaced about 12 years ago and am generally pleased with the results.  I didn't have cataracts, but my nearsightedness and poor depth of field had been getting worse all my life.  It got to the point that I could only see clearly at 4 inches.  I had to carry 4 different glasses with me to see at all distances.

I was going to have laser surgery done to be able to see without glasses, but the doctor talked me into having my lenses replaced instead.  I had a lens in one eye made so I could see clearly at 2 feet, and the other one so I could see clearly at a long distance.  Between them both, I can now see quite well without glasses from one foot to infinity.  I only use glasses to read small print.

There were two side effects to the lens replacement that all my studies had not revealed and the doctor did not tell me.  One, is that the artificial lenses don't block Ultraviolet Rays as well as natural lenses, so I have to wear sunglasses a lot more than I used to.  The second thing is it makes you more susceptible to the vitreous separating and causing floaters in the eye.  If I had known those two facts, I would not have had the lenses replaced, but had the laser surgery.  I hope this doesn't add to your stress.

Thanks everyone for the good wishes on the cataract surgeries. I'm actually concerned about what I will be able to see afterwards! I remember being in my gmoms house when she was about the age l am know and thinking to myself 'doesn't she see this dust on every'. Of course she couldn't :)

Spud, l don't know if you can file a complaint about service providers but it may be worth looking into.
I filed one with the BBB against a car dealership that refused to return an overpayment on an auto l purchased. The dealership contacted me the same day they were notified by the BBB and returned my money the following day.
And I had been after them for months with no response!

Man, Spud, I'd be furious if I saw people carting off my watermelons. What a world we live in.
Kathy, good luck with the cataract surgeries. It shouldn't be too bad. It'll be nice to see clearly again!
I'm leaving for a week to Sac. CA. Taking Amtrak's Empire Builder way up north and down Wash and Oregon. Flying back on the 20th. The garden will have to wait.
