ramble

I am sittin' here a thinkin' and a waitin' for Matlock to come on TV - He comes on every weekday evening at 10 pm - working my way through his complete series - during this hour time slot, it is the best thing on - for sure.
.
Oh rats, I've seen this episode before  - One of the episodes with Ed Wingate, the FBI agent who is a little bit off.  Right now Ed is soaking in his bath tub with his sun glasses on ---  it is pretty cute episode though, might be worth a 2nd gander.  
.
Tomorrow sometime I have my yearly eye doctor appt.  I know he is going to mess with me.  I have this problem that he never seems to get right.  My lenses are those progressive things - you can see up close and far away.  That is all well and good if you want to lift your head up high and look down through the bottom of the lens to see the computer screen.   Perhaps, I will explain that better.
.
The lens is made so you can read a book with your head level.  Then you can look up through the middle of the lens and see the other side of the room.  It works.  When  I was band directing, I could see  my director's stand pretty well and still be able to see that jerk kid on the back row as he was setting fire to the band room.
.
But the computer screen is not on my lap.  It is right straight ahead.   It is hard to see the puter this way - so, I look over the top of my glasses.  Can you say this is ideal? But the worstest (new word) thing is reading my music when I play my horn.  The music stand is at eye level.  I fight it every time I play with da band.
.
Do I have any sympathy yet?
.
Now let's discuss Income Tax time.  That's enough said.
.
The wife & I went to the Dallas Arboretum on Monday - in between our days of rain.  As always, it is a beautiful place to go.  Perty Purty Place  (see below).   One of the best thing is that we always eat lunch at Dickey's BBQ down the block.   This is an interesting Dickey's. There are always policemen and firemen there.  I am guessing that somewhere nearby is a school for policemen and firemen - y'know - one of those places you go to get in more practice and learn a bunch.  Several times there have been lots of firetrucks parked outside.   Sorta fun really.
.
The other day my phone weather app taught me that a light breeze is called a
Zephyr.  How about that.  Never knew that.  Now you know too.  You're welcome.
enough.
see ya.
