The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
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.
Kathy, it sounds like you're method of improving the clay soil should work out well.
Hope your cataract surgeries improve things for you. I can relate to bad eyes.
Daniel, I know what you mean about too much work growing things in containers. I may try another thing or two, but I've given up trying for the most part.
Randy, softball watermelons are better than none, I say. My watermelons are seedy also. Two years ago, I tried growing a seedless variety, but out of about 12 seeds planted in a container, none sprouted. I'll try again one of these years.
Thanks for liking my story.
Last evening, I saw some kids going down the alley. A girl about 7 years old was lugging my last large watermelon from outside the fence. It was about 20 pounds and more than she could handle, so she left it and came back later with someone on a bike. In the meantime I had brought it in. I also saw that a smaller one hanging outside on the fence had disappeared. I said yesterday that I wasn't bothered by the thefts, but seeing them last evening ticked me off some. I haven't opened the big one yet, but I'm sure it's not ripe, so no one gets to enjoy it. Oh, well, I'm getting over my ticked-off feelings. I think they were amplified by receiving another letter from my ISP threatening me if I don't pay them what I don't owe them, but I've just filed a complaint with the FCC, and my stress level is subsiding.
