As l have chronicled here I had cataract surgery done on both my eyes — twice on my right eye — between November 2020 & mid-January 2021. I am pleased with the outcome. The surgeries were done at OCB, i.e., Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston, & I lucked out in getting assigned to the OUTSTANDING Dr. Theodor Sauer. Wow! What a doctor & a laudable human being. We was beyond great. Well 4-days prior to the surgeries & a month after each, I had to use medicated 3-in-1 eye drops (that I have already spoken about). Once those eye drops were done Dr. Sauer was insistent that I kept on using lubricated eye drops to keep my eyes from getting dry.
He was very adamant — in the nicest possible way. Explained that most folks, which included I, did not appreciate the significance & worth of keeping one’s eyes well lubricated — especially in the winter. He recommended these & gave me a some samples. Funnily enough a previous eye doctor had recommended the same brand.

I value my eyes. So, I will do whatever I am asked to do. So, I have been using drops, daily, for the last few weeks. They definitely make a difference. Easier on the eye.
Then today I got this e-mail newsletter basically stressing what Dr. Sauer had told me.
So, I wanted to share it with you. Take note. Don’t mess with your eyes.

The above was in the Revels’ e-mail newsletter “The eReveler” that arrived in my inbox Tuesday morning.
The ever talented Mr. Patrick Swanson, erudite as he is, was using this “Mayday” introductory passage to lead us, gently, into May, Spring and the forthcoming 2018 Revels season.
I knew that “Mayday” had been introduced sometime after the sinking of the Titanic, but I was not familiar with the history. I had no doubt that Patrick would have nailed it. But, just for good measure I checked on Wikipedia. He is spot on.
Interesting. I thought you might enjoy learning about it.
Yesterday I saw a number of hits on ‘macdurgin closed‘ and ‘macdurgin sold‘ coming here, I, of course, having done a post about the possibility, now categorically voted against, of a sex shop opening within the MacDurgin building. So, I made a call or two. Yes, MacDurgin has been sold (or at least that is what I was told by somebody who would know). I was, however, glad to learn that not too many people were affected. From what I gather only two full time employees were left at the end. I was glad to hear that. There were some good folks that worked there or at least used to come to work there.
The MacDurgin building on Union Av. in Laconia per Google street view.
It has been 10 years since I was booted out. So I really have no associations with the place.
I found this on this computer. It seems to be the only thing from MacDurgin I still have. It was probably the last newsletter that I produced while I was there.
I checked their Website while I was on the phone yesterday. It seems to have been wound down. For a start the logo has been removed. That might have been a condition of the sale.
I did find this statement, and the last sentence of the first para. did have me scratching my head. Ah! Talk about a Non sequitur.
