A new start for this old man with Cataract surgery on my right eye November 16th and on my left December 23rd giving me 20/20 vision in my right eye and 20/30 vision in my left eye. Life is more exciting now that everything is so clear and vibrant. It is so amazing how this fast procedure can do so much for a person soon to be 70 years old.  
I was in a room getting ready for my first surgery and there was a sign on the wall across from me and I could not read that sign at all but when they wheeled me back into that room the sign was immediately so clear that I knew it was a miracle for this old man. I highly recommend this procedure for anyone suffering with blurred vision. It will change your life.

For a long time now I record certain shows on TV so I can enjoy them at my leisure. One of them is The Price is Right. One of the main reasons I like this show so much is being able to see Rachel Reynolds modeling items on the show. I personally think her smile is the prettiest on TV.

The photo below is so unique showing Rachel on the left and her precious daughter on the right wearing the same sweater and looking so like her mother.

Now that is the million dollar smile I was talking about and makes me so happy to see her every chance I get. 

I encourage you to also set your TV to record The Price is Right and now miss an opportunity to see the lovely Rachel Reynolds make viewing even better.

Was watching a video this morning that I did as a conversation with my Aunt Katie and Uncle Lester back in 2010 and they told of how my grandfather, after the children were doing their own thing decided to build a country store and at night after the store closed he would have poker games in there. Over time my father won enough to actually buy the store from his father and chose to sleep in the rear of the store. Just before dark his beloved group of "Bantam" chickens would jump up the back steps to get inside so they could sleep with my dad. I thought that was so cute and never knew that about my dad and wanted to pass it on.

Inspired by my sweet friend Diane over in the UK I felt I needed to use my blog to post a celebration to Christmas as well with the help of the always needed Pinterest. Com.
Here are a couple of scenes of my Rocky Mount, NC during the Christmas season and of course I couldn't forget the magical "Santa".

Think of the twinkle in the eyes of small children like my neighbors Kylie (3) and Macy (6) and go into this magical season with joy and thankfullness that we can be a part in bringing joy to those we love.  Merry Christmas from Rocky and I.

Deals in Rocky Mount Worth Looking For

Sam's Club Rotisserie Chicken which is about a pound more than you will find at other popular shopping stores cooked to perfection and costs tax and all. Lasts me and my Chihuahua for almost a week.


Cook Out Restaurant BLT. One of the finest sandwiches you will ever find in Rocky Mount and it is only.

I spend a lot of time on the road at times and I especially like to see Volvo tractor trailers because i think they are the best looking ones on the road. Now this Sheetz rig is special because of it's paint job from nose to rear end. I wish I could have found a photo of the complete rig but after a long search this was all I could find but I wanted you to see how beautiful it is with the vivid colors.

With Thanksgiving happening tomorrow I wanted to note my special thanks to the wonderful people at the Durham VA Medical Center for taking such good care of me on the 16th of November.  I had my right eye operated on and my lens was replaced with an artificial one. I went into surgery not being able to read a sign on the wall in the preop room and a little while later I was rolled back into that room and I could instantly read that sign so clearly. What a miracle. Now everything is so much brighter and vivid. Soon on December 23rd I will be having the same surgery on my left eye and I cannot wait to have both eyes seeing clearly again. This surgery is for seeing off at a distance and I noticed a problem seeing small print up close. I happened to see this pair of glasses I had for a long time and tried them and instantly the small print was clear as well. What a miracle having what I needed to correct the other issue. This is one happy man and I am so thankful.
