Must be that Thanksgiving Feast that seems to go on forever with all the leftovers. I know a big meal slows me down.  ;)
Changing meds again. Seems at the end of each year the drug and insurance companies change their prices and what's covered. And of course that damn doughnut hole that costs us a couple grand in the last two months.

Still making progress but it's also still slow. Mostly it's providing insight into actions without going deep into the physics or writing pages of explanation. I'm a bit on the obsessive side about it, and have a tendency to rewrite it until I've gotten it down to a few paragraphs. Often I have to go and read a popular author's book, like David Weber, to remind me a page or two of explanation is not uncommon even from what are considered good writers. I just don't like doing it. Of course there are writer's such as Robert Louis Stevenson and Dorothy Sayers who can make the explanations as entertaining as the stories themselves. Unfortunately, my technical background has a tendency to make my explanations come across as rather dry. And writing humor is not one of my strong suits.

In any case, I am making progress so there is an end in sight, though not on --the proverbial-- paper yet.

It slowed down on me.  I hope I can pick it up and push it over the finish line!

Looks like you're close to completing another one.

It's slow gong but I'm getting it done, even if it's just one line at a time.

Have made a little progress the last few days, just not as much as I'd like. It's mainly a matter of working out all the technical issues of the chase then battle.

I'd think bionic eyes would be more sophisticated these days, but I guess not. Have to be satisfied with 20/20 vision. With the new hard lens I can't adjust the depth but I'd lost that ability years ago anyway. I can see a lot better. My eyes had gotten used to the warm reds. Now it's crisper and has moved towards the blues.

Was getting a lot of eye drops each day until last night. As of now I'm supposed be be able to get back to normal. We''ll see if I can do some writing today. Hopefully my head will be into it.

My wife and I had cataract surgery on both eyes. Replaced the lens in the left eye then the right eye a week later. Of course I gave the doc a hard time when we went in for our follow up, couldn't get the zoom feature to work. ;D
