Dear Ms Wauson, I love your reminisces (spelling?) and recollections. Thanks for your lovely contributions to the WCN. Just 2 or 3 little tidbitsd: 1) I had cataract surgery about 3 years ago and it really is nothing to get queasy about. After the doctor puts that juicy in your veins to relax you hardly remember anything...I am usually terrified of anything to do with medical procedures, but it turned out to be ok...but a word of caution, it will change your vision...it won't be the same as before but it will be very manageable...I found a really good optometrist that fit my left eye with contacts (the right one got the surgery) so that I could focus and see...the new contacts are so easy to wear, cheap (about $20 for a case of 6 which are useable for about 2 weeks each), and are so comfortable that they do not require any kind of 'getting use to them' period.

2) I am a realtor in the Austin Area and use to live in Georgetown which is loaded with old historic houses built in the late 1800s many of which have been restored. And, I have had the opportunity to tour many of them and even show a few clients some that were for sale. Seeing the hand carved mantles, staircases and other areas handcrafted of wood by late 19th century craftsman has been really a treat for me. And, I share your love of old houses...homes are just not built that way anymore.

3) And, a funny story (if there really is such a thing) about an aunt that developed altzheimers...she has since passed away, but the story is still amusing...at least to me anyway. Aunt B was a very sturdy old woman of tough, German stock...you know the type...she climbed upon her roof and replaced it, she managed her farm after her husband died, she remodeled her bathroom all by herself...Well, in the last 10 years of her life, she developed that nasty memory disease ( I got this little story from her daughter)...about 4 years before she passed, I inquired as to her health. "Well", chuckled my Cousin, "Mama is in better health now than ever...During her life on the farm, she developed a taste for lots of meat, candy, chips and the like. But, now that she has altzheimers, the nurses give her lots and lots of healthy food including vegetables which she has always hated, but since developing altzheimers, she does not remember that she hates them. And, as a result, her physical health has greatly improved"....well, that may not be a belly laugher, but I always thought it was humorous.

Thanks again for your soft entrance in our daily lives with your memories, insights, and warm/fuzzy stories...I know that I can always count on you for an entertaining paragraph or two.
