I now have both of my new prescription glasses. I got the bifocals about 10 days ago and have had the reading glasses for a few days. They are going to take a little longer for me to become adjusted to them. The reading glasses are great with one big exception; when I look up to see what is happening outside - the vision is very poor. I need to pull the glasses off. The bifocals with lines have been easier to adjust to since I have worn progressive bifocal glasses for years.

I had rain on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this past week. Never a hard rain more like Cochise County has become part of the Northwest coast. Wednesday was the worse with very strong winds as I was driving to and from Sierra Vista with a steady rain the last ten miles when returning to Benson.

I don't have much to say today. Just complain about the cold weather some more. Yesterday morning the low was 16°. It had warmed up to 22 by 8:00 but I had frozen water pipes to the bathroom sink; the other lines were still open which was good. The high temperature on Wednesday was 46 with a stiff wind blowing almost all day. If the weather gurus can be believed, which I seldom do, the low temperature next Monday morning will be higher than that. They then have the rest of the morning lows for the 10 day forecast to all be in the 40s. I sure do hope they are right; I will even be happy with above freezing.

You need to read this entire article They knew: why didn't the unvaccinated do more to warn us?. I don't know if the author is writing it as spoof or it is for real. Whichever it might be I suspect there will be more like it to come soon.

I am now starting my third day at RV City. The plan was that I would arrive on the 25 at 9:00 am and they would coat Desperado's roof that day and I would leave by 5:00 pm. So much for plans.

Erik had a good day at his last Wednesday group training class. He did almost everything that the trainer required that he was to do. He still needs more training with the Down command but he is better with that also. At the end of the class one of the other dog owners came up to me and said that she was impressed with how well Erik had done. I wish Erik could have heard her and understood the compliment.

Yesterday morning was COLD; the low was 21.7° with a feels like temperature of 14. That happened around 7:00; I had called a halt to our morning walk after doing half our usual distance. My hands and feet were very painful with the cold; was still below freezing at 10:00. It was much warmer this morning at 31.8° but the forecast for tomorrow is that it will be COLD again.
