20 / 20 vision - and that's not just Obama.

We spent last week on the Isle of Wight with Grandchildren Leah and Rebekah. What is it about mobile phones and the need to have one permanently attached to the right ear? Or is that just me getting old? Excellent week and weather was super unlike the rest of Britain I gather.

Eyes to be checked on 19th. Glasses, reading and distance - never had the former before - I collected today. I was told it would take ten working days from order date - it has taken closer to 20. I managed to get 10% discount on total price for the inconvenience.

I spent yesterday morning with Rita - working breakfast at the Liskeard Tavern (staff were very helpful and pleasant - I guess that's part training and part a pride in one's role - I don't see that much nowadays). Valuable time spent on synopsis and tidying up loose ends on Messenger. Trying to get 14 pages of synopsis down to 2 is a task, but it'll get done. Set myself deadline to approach agent by end of November.

Obama is obviously the right man for the job and hopefully will withdraw the troops from Iraq and Afghanistan asap. He bears a similarity to JFK - an optimism for the future and a driving force for good. Let's hope those who destroyed JFK don't see BHO as a threat.
