Worry put to rest and a trip to a paradise.

I did get to see an eye doctor on Monday for the problem I mentioned, black spots in my vision. After a very thorough checkup, he told me that I had detachment of the vitreous which means that some of the gel in the eye has pulled away from the retina. It can be bad if it causes a hole in the retina because that can lead to a detached retina, as serious condition. For now, I just wait and let him know if I get any continuous sensations of flashing lights in my vision.

This is one of those fun aging things.

Two of my family members along with two extended family members are on a 6 day canoe trip into the BWCAW. [Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness for those of you who don't speak canoe.] This would be a long way for most of you to drive to get to, but if you were at my house, you would drive just under one mile to register at the US Forest Service office. Link here also. I'm already enjoying my time alone.

I just found some video links on this website!


  1. I have been to the BWCA many, many times. It's really like paradise, isn't it?


And what do you think?
