To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!

About Me

My photo
I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!

Because Mobile and Baldwin Counties get a Mardi Gras holiday (Mobile, not New Orleans, has the oldest Mardi Gras celebrations), state employees in other counties can take one personal day. I took mine today. My cousin came from Arab, AL, to take Mother to the eye doctor, so we three spent the day. Dr. Mark Bearman at Vision First ( is the first ophthalmologist I saw on December 18, 1998 after my left retina imploded on December 15. I went back with Mother to speak to him for a minute, and of course got a hug. Afterwards, Joyce, Mother, and I went to Cracker Barrel for a late lunch, in part using a gift certificate that Angela, an on-line friend who's a Christian in Dublin, Ireland, had sent me. Mother's 92 and mentally still sharp. She got in a couple of zingers today! She may be old, but mentally she is not slow! We had a great time! I was gone from home from about 11:30 until about 6:30!
