Well, I got it done. I had eye surgery, not lasix or just cataract surgery. This was lens replacement surgery. As they describe it, the doctor goes to the back of your eyeball, breaks up your lens and sucks it out. Once he’s finished with that, some natural disaster occurs and everybody runs out of the building, leaving you for dead and blindness! Okay, maybe not, but that’s what’s going through your mind. Actually they place a plastic trifocal lens at the back of your eyeball. Then after two weeks of medicated eyedrops and looking like Theodore Roosevelt, they do the other one. I think it has turned out pretty good, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. Am I still taking decent photographs?

Okay, I’m playin’ with you. Those were meant to be abstract!

Are those more what you expected? Over the weekend of the 4th we explored to the North and West of home. We went to the Ross Creek Cedars,


Bull Lake,


and Little MacGregor Lake.


Then on Sunday last weekend we went to Lonepine reservoir over near Hot Springs. While Terry fished (unsuccessfully) I paddled to the far shore, where several trees emerged from the high water level.

It was like exploring a section of the flooded forest of the Amazon. Several Mule Deer were bedded down on the banks behind the trees, enjoying what little shade was to be found in the area. They didn’t seem to know what to think of me approaching them from the water. So I got within 20-30 feet.

There were others there fishing also.

Fast forward to this weekend. Terry’s fishing experience has improved! We went a couple miles from home, to Kicking Horse Reservoir.

While she worked on dinner, I chased some birds around and checked out blooms.

There’s still one day left in the weekend. We’ll see what we can find.
