The Eye Has It

The keystone of my week's stay in the Bay Area is a rare opening in my eye specialist's schedule tomorrow morning for my annual diabetic eye exam, which is already overdue. Just in time for it, my left eye has started twitching, which happens when I'm worn down and my eyes get tired on account of my left eye is weaker than my right. Fortunately, I left an eyepatch from a previous case of this happening in the RV, so I'll look a touch piratical while I wear the patch to allow my left eye to stop having to work overtime for a while.

I did not find the patch until getting ready for bed last night, or I would have worn it to last night's BASFA meeting, which probably would have provided some additional entertainment for the membership and cracks about us having "hijacked" Westercon to Tonopah.

The Eye Has It

Here I am with the patch in place. It's not easy to work this way, but it's slightly better than working through the twitch.
