Wrinkles, we all got them and in a lot of different places. We were born with wrinkles, they didn't seem to bother us then. A lot of them smoothed out as we grew up. As we aged, a lot of those wrinkles started returning. In middle age, women have kept the cosmetic industries flourishing and I am sure a few men have helped, also, by purchasing all that wrinkle cream, etc. Wrinkles are a fact of life, if our skin didn't wrinkle it would crack. Wrinkles are important and are needed in the proper places. It is when they start showing up where they are not needed is when people start wanting to get rid of them. I, for one, am proud of my wrinkles. It took me dang near 70 years to get them just right (grin).
Yesterday, my wife had an appointment with an eye surgeon to check and see if her cataracts were ready for removal. They were not, but the doctor discovered another problem. She has developed a wrinkle on her retina. This is not good. Things look wavy to her, there is no such thing in her world as a straight line. It really bothers her. That was bad news but one good thing, she does not need surgery for her cataracts yet and the surgery to fix her retina wrinkle is quite complicated and dangerous; not recommended by her doctor. He said that there are drops available that may help the situation, so we took his prescription to the drug store but they said that they wouldn't have it until the next day, that is today. So another trip to town today is on the agenda. We both hope and pray that they work. She called her brother last night to tell him and we found out that he has the same thing. Coincidence or hereditary? We may never know. The eye problems that she has been having is the major reason she doesn't like to ride in the motor-home. Hope she can get the problem fixed without any major hassle. Now you all wish her luck and have yourself a great Friday, you hear?
