It was time for Gizmo’s six-month eye checkup today at Eye Care for Animals and he got a good report – he can go nine months to his next one. He has Pigmentosa Keratitis in both eyes (a brown pigment band runs across the center of each eye) and fluid in the cornea of his left eye (the one that got damaged when he was younger) that gives it a white appearance.

But those are to keep infections down and maybe keep the conditions from getting worse. Continue reading Gizmo eye doctor. Texas Roadhouse dinner. Newsletter.
We started the morning with Elaine painting some posters, one with “FRI SAT“, the other with “8-?“, which we attached to the ends of the YARD SALE banner we picked up yesterday. And we went out front and fastened both that banner and the SPECIAL EVENT banner to the front fence. This will let passersby know about the event that starts tomorrow. Then Elaine also painted two large sheets of butcher paper, one with YARD, the other with SALE, and we attached them to two large A-frame panels that Dale and Betty Stroh recently built and George Immerso painted white. We attached the paper signs to the boards and took them out front as well. Continue reading Banners hung, signs out. Frantic yard sale prep.
Much of my day was spent working on the upcoming Royal Palm newsletter. I have most of it done now; just waiting for news from the Social Club meeting tomorrow and any last-minute ads or items. This afternoon I interviewed Agnes Volk, who has been in Royal Palm since 1990. I always enjoy visiting with Agnes and miss seeing her at the pool. She’ll be back once it warms up again, she says. She is still very active for a 92-year-old! Continue reading Newsletter work. Interview with a lovely woman. Costco shopping. No Reunion.
