  • It’s on days like this that I think of the mighty Hercules, who said, “You want me to clean out what?”
  • We’ve reached that transition point where summer becomes fall.  It’s where the first leaves start to change color, the days are shorter, and you have to use both the defroster and the air conditioner in the truck on the same day.
  • Today, I scheduled a consult for laser eye surgery.  Yes, I’ve finally reached that age where a new pair of glasses each year adds up to enough money that I’m willing to let somebody carve on my cornea with a ruby-chromium laser.
    • “Do you expect me to talk?”
    • “No, Mister Bond, I expect you to see.”
  • I once watched an after-action review of a Red Flag exercise where a Harrier pilot got up and asked if there was anyone in the room who had not had a chance to shoot him down.  Nobody raised their hand.
    • That’s kind of what I felt after trying to play an on-line first person shooter this week.
    • If asked, I will say I erased the game from my tablet because I have better things to do with my time.  It has nothing to do with the fact that it seemed like a waste of electrons to get shot in the face by 12 year olds again and again and again.

    Hey DB;

    I had it done 11 years ago, after I broke 3 pairs of glasses and was down to my old U.S.Army BCG’s. I can wear sunglasses now…..it is a really big deal 🙂

    A bit late to the game, but I hope you’re going in for PRK and not LASIK. It’s way better.
