I have four images for you today and a long rambling story.
I was off work yesterday and had nothing on my “to-do” list. I was looking forward to a wasteful day of rest and relaxation. While sitting in front of my computer trying to decide if I should take a photography lesson or play some Xbox. I hate to admit that the Xbox was winning the debate when I got a text on my phone reminding me I had a pre op appointment at 10:00 a.m. I was certain it was for Monday but decided I had better check the patient website and sure enough there it was. So I got a shower, packed some cameras, and decided that I would head down to the clinic a little early. This turned out to be a good idea.
So I get to the clinic and stand in line waiting impatiently, I might add, to announce my presence and finally get to the “gate-keeper” who has a puzzled look on her face when I tell her that I had a ten o’clock appointment for a physical. She says your physical is for Monday not today. Of course I indignantly showed her the text on my phone and she said, “That appointment is with Ophthalmology!” Ugh, it is now 15 minutes before my appointment and I have to drive clear across town to get to the Ophthalmology department. So I apologized to her and hastened to my car, which was at the far end of the parking lot. The good news is I made it with a couple of minutes to spare and spent the next two hours getting all kinds of measurements and testing done to my eye.
After my exam (fortunately they did not dilate my eyes) I decided to head out to see if I could find some images. It was a gray day and after an hour or so of exploring I stopped at this little cafe North of Durango for lunch. Very small place with lots of regular customers there. It was funny because people who came in after I did and ordered got their food before me. 🙂
Growing up in a small community I fully understand that you take care of your regular customers before a passer-by.
After 4 hours of looking at some new territory and trying to find something of interest these are the four images I came up with. Thankful that I found something but of course disappointed that this was as good as it got.
That’s it for today. Thanks for listening to me ramble on. Hope you enjoy your day and be careful.
