Photo by SnaggleTooth 2009
At two points of my mountain drive odyssey, The low sun was in my eyes while I was under the dense clouds in the rainfall. In the pic, you can still see some of the water sprinkles on the windshield. I was trying to get the reflections off the water on the road in the sunshine I could see, but battery-going-dead cam didn't see it.
Today's post n blog reading will be very short due to a swollen shut, n stinging like hell allergy eye. There was way too much dust on the violin I had to clean for playing, because the case wasn't closed all the way last time a few weeks back. I'm very allergic to dust mites, n the clariton taken earlier didn't work this time. (*rats*) My eyes don't want to open in bright light at all, it really hurts. Hopefully benedryl n teabag soaks does the trick in a day or two.
Right now I'm basically blind...

Bless your heart - that sounds bad. I hope your remedies work quickly!

So sorry 'bout your eye, Snag. Mine get like that sometimes too from allergens. I sure hope the teabags have offered some relief?.

Nice shot. It's so hard to drive against the setting sun.

And harder still to stop it from setting.

Lynn, Yep, pretty bad pain. Not as swollen today, TG- Thanks

JanF, Once every few years it gets this bad for me- got it good- allergic to too much, with traveling pollen, folks perfume, then nailed in the face with vio-dust. Used green n chamo teabags are great n I drnk them every day too- My pic stopped the sun right in it's tracks!

Paige, Sorry gotta wait for getting to my blog-reading, mostly. I have to- thanks. Been walking around with one eye closed...

Talon, Luckily, I can play with my eyes closed! Thanks

And I remember in 1994 when I scratched my corneas from the fine dust of sand-papering wooden steps. Owwwwwwwwwwww.

JanF, wow, I bet that stung pretty bad! When your eye really stings, you can't think about anything else! I have a history of eye-probs, n have been very lucky they still work!

David, I remember Hanna plays it- I've never had lessons, just wing it. Was in the closet busted for years, n just fixed up about 15 years ago, then I bought the loud, electric one in '01.
