FOWC with Fandango: Cantankerous


Cantankerous was me today, late afternoon. First of all I had to write a piece which took an hour of my time. Time that I would rather have spent on a wheelie in my chair.

At last I could deal with my bloggy stuff and began to write when suddenly the right hand glass dropped out of my glasses Admittedly it had been a little shaky lately, but now it dropped out. After examination I realise there must be a minute, microscopic sized screw somewhere that was holding the frame together on the righthand size. Without glasses I could not find it, so I gave up.

What to do? Without glasses I cannot read, write and worst of all drive the car. I searched and found my last pair of eye glasses and although not exactly perfect I could see. I am an action woman so the next step was climb into the car and drive off to the supermarket where my optician is. In two minutes I was finished  with the repair work and the young man cleaned the glasses, replaced the screw and I was seeing again. I was no longer so cantankerous.

Next Friday afternoon another visit to the optician for an eye test. I really need new eye glasses. It has been almost 10 years since I got the last ones.

  1. You could fix the glasses. I carry a little tiny thing with the mini screws and a teeny tiny screwdriver for emergencies … but 10 years without an eye check is a LOT of time, so probably you do need glasses. I need glasses too and as soon as I can afford a pair …


    • I need new glasses as soon as possible. I can see OK with mine, but sometimes have to use a magnifying glass. I just did not get round to it, but now is the time, especially as I am driving again.
