I have noticed our son (nearing 50) has been holding things out at arm’s length to read them for a few years now. He also has started carrying reading glasses. Do you remember going thru those stages? Near 50 I finally got some bi-focal lenses and made the building business easier. It was never vanity with me, just the aggravation.
My buddy Sonny would never get a pair of bi-focals. Every time we were working together, and he needed to read a schematic or a ruler of any kind, out of his shirt pocket came the reading glasses. He never gave in.
(The most famous guy with bad eye sight!)
I remember seeing an article about exercising your eyes. This guy was in his 70’s and had 20/20 vision. He claimed it was because he spent 30 minutes a day exercising his eyes. He had some pulleys rigged up with a hand crank. When he turned the crank, a target came at him from the opposite wall until it touched his nose. Thus causing his eye to focus from far to near. Then he reverses this. By the end of the 30 minutes the object was moving faster causing his eye muscles to operate faster. Now the premise sounded logical, But I am too lazy to exercise my eyes 30 minutes a day. I am fortunate if I can take time out of my ‘busy’ day to walk an hour. Hahahahaha
Also, there are folks with eye sight 20/20 well into their 70’s. Wiley Harris, Sherry’s dad, read the paper nearly every day of his life without glasses. He passed away at 83. So as far as I know he never exercised his eyes. Oh wait, maybe it was the reading the paper as his exercise. So maybe the guy above just had good eyes.
(The ones advertising this stuff don’t need it.)
Might be like those exercise machines they advertise. None of those guys and gals needs that exercise machine to get in shape, THEY ARE IN SHAPE. They want me to look at that Cool dude and think that is what I will look like if I buy one of them. Shirl has an exercise machine (of course she doesn’t need it either) but she gets her exercise dragging it from room to room to hang her clothes on. HA!
I have the two above here in the motor home. I use them every few months. I wish I would use them three times a week.
(Sherry has been using the exercise equip. again! I have completely quit talking back to her!!!)
Do you have exercise equipment?
Did y’all notice Lindie made a couple comments GO LADY. Lindie was the first person to ever comment on my journal.
Check this car out!
The one Sheila loved, but had to give it up!!!!
