The Diabetic Eye Exam

Once, maybe twice per year I have a diabetic eye exam to be sure I have no broken blood vessels hiding inside my overworked eyeballs. An ounce of prevention is still worth a pound of cure, right? No broken blood vessels! As usual, my eyes must be dilated so that the good doctor can see inside my head, hence these groovy plastic lenses behind my glasses. So sexy baby!

Back To Disc Golf!

After watching so many people playing disc golf in the linear park behind my apartment complex, I’ve decided to purchase some basic discs and get back into the game. Besides, I need another way to get some exercise! For less than thirty bucks I purchased these three discs. Each disc is a different size, weight and has it’s own unique air foiling properties. A long range Driver, a Midrange disc and a Putter for close-in shots. I’m looking forward to playing again!

There are plenty of courses around Las Vegas and today I found out that there is a course up in Lee Canyon near Mount Charleston. Yeah! It will be a bit cooler up there of course but it’s only 102 degrees here today, much cooler than last week. I may purchase a bag for the discs and to hold those all important drinks. Oh, and the Nikon of course! I will need plenty of practice, I used to play in leagues during the nineteen nineties. I’ll enjoy the challenge though.

These discs are not Frisbees! There is a big difference…

Diabetic Foot Care

OK, to be bloody honest, I seriously dislike my feet, always have. Since learning in 2002 that I am a Type Two diabetic, I’ve had to pay close attention to my not so attractive feet. Honestly, I find that the human foot can in some cases be the least attractive part of any human body. No, zero foot fetish here, only my opinion.

The photo below is of yours truly gnarly feet. I have recently become tired of the nasty appearance of my feet and have resumed once per month visiting a specific Nail/Foot Spa near to me. This wonderful Korean woman has been the most wonderful person to have taken care of my feet. No cuts, no pain and the most delicate work possible.

Understand that although unrelated, I allow nothing but air to touch my eyes. I am horridly ticklish and let her know. It was easy to work through, and so very much worth the cost and the ten dollar tip for her excellent work. The bottom line here is that it is so very important that you, a Type Two Diabetic to take care of your farthest bodily parts. Much better than an amputation…

Gross foot photo…
