. . . Observations
Item: Mrs. B had her second (and final) cataract surgery on Friday. It was very successful.
Observation: It's amazing how someone can stick a knife in your eyeball, scoop out the lens, insert a plastic implant, and allow virtually perfect vision again.
Item: I do not own a snow shovel, as they are not needed in southern Virginia, and besides, I own a front-wheel drive SUV that does well in the snow.
Observation: We had at least 6" of snow yesterday, followed by freezing sleet. The Escape is in the shop. So much for logic.
Late Breaking News: THE CITY OF VIRGINIA BEACH DOES NOT CLEAR RESIDENTIAL STREETS.
Item: Barry O said that he would "rather be a good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president."
Observation: He's well on the way to the latter, and, with any luck, will be eminently successful at the former.
(Soto voce: Sorry, but comments on the most ineffective president since Jimmy C. are occasionally necessary, lest my head explode)
Item: Lisa, Ian and Brittany are coming to visit in 11 days.
Observation: I have laid in all of the supplies necessary for the visit.
