There's not been much to write about around here recently. In fact, things have been so slow this week that even the cats are bored.

Last week I did have a few appointments. It was time for my annual eye examination so I got that checked off my "To Do" list. I found out I have wrinkles in one eye. I knew I was getting old but geez! Sure, a lot of us have wrinkles around our eyes but in your eye? This is called a "macular pucker" and they noticed it last year at my checkup and apparently this year it has gotten a bit worse. There is nothing that can be done about it unless it gets much worse and then they do surgery. I'm just going to hope it doesn't get that bad because I can do without surgery, thank you!
I've been organizing family photos from the late 1800's and early 1900's. I'm getting them ready to scan and I also want to write names and approximate dates on them. Of course, there are a few of people that I don't know who they are and I'm really wishing my ancestors had written names on the back of their photos. Hint for the future: please identify your family pictures whether they are printed or digital! Someone in your future will thank you!
Tom and I have been shopping for new cell phones. We no longer keep a house phone so we need reliable cell phones. We currently each have a Samsung Galaxy S4 and it has been the best phone I've ever owned. It is seven years old which is truly ancient for a smart phone. Our phones are still working but need to be replaced soon due to memory problems. (I hope no one ever says that about me!) They simply were not made to handle the software and apps of today. One sales clerk got a big kick out of the age of our phones. I thought we were doing good to use them as long as possible but I guess many people today trade them in every year. We went to a couple of different stores and discovered the availability of many of the phones we were considering is now extremely limited due to the coronavirus. There is a big shortage in electronics and parts for electronics. Many phones, televisions and other electronics come from China and other countries affected by the virus. Some of the factories have been closed because of it. Hmm, we may be using these phones a while longer.
Spring is at least getting closer for us and that is always a good thing. Our temperatures may even get up to the 60s F this weekend and that would be wonderful! We also spring forward this Saturday night so we lose an hour of sleep. Thanks Daylight Savings Time. Honestly, I'd just as soon keep the same time all year. Oh well. Have a great weekend everyone!
