@2PacksAday,
I wear the string once in a while but it conflicts with my once in a while earrings.
What I need is more pockets.

I didn't know that about light colored eyes.

Anyway, I didn't mean to scare about cataracts (plus you are too young), those are usually quick and good surgeries.

@ossobuco,
Just about everyone in my family has blue/gray/light green eyes....mine are all those colors, they change daily, and thru the day at times. We all have the same trouble, seems to be a bit worse with me, but I just have sensitive eyes....I can not stand to be in the wind, my eyes will water almost instantly, and hard, like crying at a funeral hard.

Sometimes after a sunny or windy day, I'll resort to eye drops, my wife....the love of my life, once mistook our daughters contact cleaner for the eye drops....that hurt like a sumbich....I think that was the last time anybody put anything in my eyes.

100 rabbits and a carrot. It's a "Where's Waldo" kind of thing where you find the carrot in the mess.

Mismi -- yeah I started it over the weekend. I seem to be completing it from right to left.

I get a puzzle every year for Christmas and/or my birthday. I like working on them after the holidays to help make the wintertime go by. My mother was an avid puzzler. She worked on them year round.

Last year's puzzle was challenging. The picture on the box was a completely different puzzle than the pieces inside --- straight from the store! I finished it, but I'd much prefer to have a picture to go by.

this was the actual puzzle --- although I couldn't find a picture of it online last year.
