So I have been a little behind in creating scrollsaw projects. Today was a perfect day to do some catch-up. The weather was nice with some breeze blowing and mild temperatures. I have projects all lined up and the material to complete some (see the previous post). So I was going to do some scrolling.
Well as it happens, about a week ago I noticed a black dot in front of me floating around. I realized it was some optical issue but not sure what. I learned that it could be what is called “floaters” We older people get those. So over the week the one dot turned into two then three. Then over the weekend they turned into an ugly spider like web over my right eye. I was not happy at all. Monday morning first thing I am at the eye doctor’s office having an exam hoping all the time it is not cataracts. Well as it turns out it is truly “floaters” in the right eye. Again, something that happens to older people and not painful and the only cure is to wait till they settle in the bottom of the eye ball.
Now the truly bad part. I am a one eyed scroller. That is I close my left eye and look only through my right or the one with the spider web effect in it. I did OK for about two hours but the frustration of trying to look around or past the spider web just wore me out. So I stopped. I guess I won’t be scrolling for several weeks.
I hate getting old.
