Sherry has been bothered by cataracts now for some time. She had planned to get the work done in Florida. We were scheduled to go back that way in September. Her sight is getting so bad she decided to do it locally and before August first. She made an appoint with a local surgeon but he could not do the surgery within her time frame.
Sitting here she asked, do you mind going back to Florida for a few weeks? She knows that is about like asking has a cat got climbing gear. “I’m ready when are we going?”
I don’t know, I haven’t made an appointment yet. If you are a Jerry Clower fan you will remember Marcel stopping a train to see if the engineer wanted a possum. The engineer was miffed but since he had stopped the whole train said, “Yes, how big is it?”

“Don’t know, ain’t caught it yet, I just wanted to know if you wanted one!”
Anyway, that is what I thought of. (Funny how the mind works, in flashed like that.)
She called, and now has an appointment for both eyes. We head back to Florida and the Wildwood area mid July for a few weeks. Then we head for the Badlands.
I am ready to ride. I have caught up with most of my chores, I think!
PS: Elmer, my last Brother in law alive, if asked if he is ready (for whatever), his answer was always, “I WAS BORN READY.”
That is the way I am about a trip.
