Heh...


So the eye is fine, really, it's just that I got this Amazon package in the mail on Friday, right after coming home from a post-op appointment with one of my many eye doctors. (I've seen something like five of 'em this past year, it's good work they're doing. Like my friend the Florida Flyer likes to say, I'm high maintenance. She's not too far off the mark there.)

Anyhoo, The Missus Herself was expecting a package, some wee sma' thing, so we thought it was that. Then I noted the addressee on the package, "Old AF Sarge." Seems one of you Chanters went shopping for the old curmudgeon, that would be me, Your Humble Scribe.

For what it's worth, I freaking love it.

For those who wonder about such things, The Missus Herself has already put the kibosh on me wearing that nifty eye patch to church on Sunday. She's still up in the air about me surprising the tribe at work with the thing. That might be fun. Or not.

Makes me want to sing a sea shanty, that patch does.



Good stuff that.

  2. That is too funny. What a nifty doodad. That is too cool. I'd wear that everywhere. You should build up a story about the size of the eye socket underneath then scare the kiddies when you raise it up!! Very good!

  3. Wish I'd have thought of that! Arggghhh!

  5. Well, you can still use the eyepatch for the same thing pirates used it for - preserving the night vision in that eye.

    1. Is that a real thing? Pirates didn't have NVGs?

      Oh, wait...

    2. It's sorta what we did when fragged for a night bamboo-destroying mission with pods of 2.75 FFARs. Practice keeping one eye closed whilst hurtling earthbound and after pickle and apparent swoosh sound of a pod of rockets, pull up and then open the saved eye. Really. TINS.

    1. Probably will, for the silliness that's in it.

    1. Thanks Mary, I probably will take it along, ya know, just in case.

  12. What she doesn't know won't hurt her. IE: Take the patch with you to work, and swap out patches before you get there, like when you have parked the car. Unless you want to freak the gateguard out.

    Do not try to sneak it to church. She'd have you hanging by the yardarm in no time flat.

    Nice half Dan Crenshaw, by the way.

  14. Patches...that was a hit song in the '60s wasn't it? Dickey Lee if I recall...

  15. You need to get one like Thor had, with no strap. Much more avant-garde. As for the secret Chanter-admirer, how many of us know your address? I'll admit it was not me.

    1. The Thor patch would be cool. Oh, I know who sent it.

    2. OK, so it wasn't me or Tuna. Leaves Beans and Lush. Beans hasn't denied it in his comment, so it could be him and he IS a devious son of a...gun (what did you think I was going to say?). However, LUSH, hasn't commented (or posted, but that's another story and I'm not going there), so it could be her. My theory is it's LUSH. A unseen 'winder for the kill. And since he couldn't see in the first place, an unseen one wouldn't have been hard. Yep....LUSH.

      Prove me wrong.

    3. Nope.

      I'll let this remain a mystery for now. I too can be a devious so-and-so. 😎

  16. Nice eye patch; now you can join Jimmy Buffett's band.

    Thanks for the post.
