This little spectacle made for quite a refreshing stop.
Then he asked if I had my licence with me, here I offer it to him.
The young chap on the pushbike would be making sure he keeps safe from ridicule from his peers by not wearing a helmet that the law requires.
Olivia has been in Australia one year now, and despite walking still being difficult we still have to get out and about sometimes. Hopefully I'll have plenty more pictures soon to post here about our weekend away.
In cases like mine they must keep a stock of extra blunt needles for removing blood and this looks good compared to how it was when I left the place.
Predictably I've heard there's a diabetes issue, maybe some day I'll take notice of that, but also they spotted anaemia, that would explain why I've been so fatigued and weak for a while, with a bit of luck they might have a reason soon to slice me up and cut out the Meckel's diverticulum that I suspect I have. I've already ordered a staple remover to save them the bother in case they do.
Then I realised the solution was simple, the lens info on the front is just a sticker and removing it and the six screws underneath gains simple access to the front lens for cleaning.
Meanwhile it was quite a long job replacing all the fancy bits at the rear but the lens is functioning again.
Those familiar will note that this is their budget lens but don't poo-poo it because it's the base lens, in reality it's a sharp little beauty.
The vinegar looks like it may revive the dead but I'm a bit concerned it may have an opposite effect on the living, however I'm assured it's all good.
A miracle is that it actually works........for now.
