One arm Joe


I have just taken the dogs out and fell over a lead breaking my last pair of glasses
I broke a pair last night too....good job they are only 1 £ from poundland
Hope I get a sedated and ventilated patient tonight
It's not very professional having one arm to your specs
Hey ho

  2. Judging by the price you pay for your specs John - they sound a bit fragile. Good job you are not paying as much as me this week!!!

  3. For the love of God man, you are a serious one-man show. Glad you did not get hurt. Of course, your description of your falls and injuries are the best I have ever read.

  4. It's a pity we're not a bit closer we have pairs of the cheapo glasses all over this house, at least two pairs in every room ... it's the only way we can make sure we can see what we're doing when we need to do close up work ;-)

  5. You could write a book about you and this picture should be the cover. You would make millions! I'd buy it!

  8. You and your glasses John. I got out of the bath recently to put on my reading glasses to read the word:shampoo on one of the bottles perched on the rim of the bath.

  9. Is Chris back yet? You are falling to pieces without him! :-)

  11. Better the glasses broke and not an arm or a leg ..
    If you tape them, make sure it is white tap so it will look as bad as possible lol

  12. Surely you have access to a roll of sticking plaster!

  13. I've heard that if you dream about breaking your glasses - it means somebody's gonna die ...
    Think in real life it may mean you are a bit of a klutz. May need super glue or some kind of tape...
    Good luck tonight!

  14. My suggestion would be ... get a few pairs of glasses and keep one pair in the car or wherever and you will always have that little insurance.
    I have reading glasses with a prescription from my eye dr but I also have cheapies from the department store that are just as good. Those are the "back up" pair if my good ones get lost or broken.
    I tend to put things down and forget where I put them ... sigh ... young and senile .. what a pity.

  15. Black electrical tape John...it fixes everything. Glad you didn't hurt yourself.

  16. at this rate maybe you should keep a half dozen on hand for The Next Time..

  17. I reckon you will now get dozens of pairs of glasses sent to you from faithful readers all over the world!

  19. Hey, I get my glasses from "Dollerama" as well! It's my own little way of refusing to accept that my eyesight is going. I won't shell out the $8.00 at Walmart! My husband used electrical tape on his glasses for quite some time until he could get new ones at the optometrist. Then he got his eyes lasered so no need for glasses anymore. -Jenn

  21. Look on the bright side, you get to pick some new and dashing frames! Not that there's anything wrong with the old ones ... er ... leaving now.

  22. It'll be easy for you to do an Eric Morecambe impression now! X

  23. Oh dear John .... a bit of elastoplast will do the trick and give you that ' Milky Bar Kid ' look !! XXXX

  25. Soda straw. Honest story..friend used a straw for temporary bow on his glasses. Looked hysterical, but it worked.

  29. Use roughly 0.8-1.5 mg versed q 2-4 hrs for sedation, ventilate around 15mg/kg body wt for tidal volume, start at 30 percent O2,decrease to 25 if sats are ok.

  30. I gather it's safe to say that they aren't prescription glasses. The last time I bought a pair, more than five years ago, they were $400+. They will have to last the rest of my life.

    Love,
    Janie

  32. Buy a 'job-lot'; at a pound a pair you could buy a 6 pack, and still have change for a couple of Scotch Eggs.

  33. Oh John, you do entertain us. we use all the donated specs in the shop so don't lose our own !

  34. Couldn't see a Jnr Doc at A&E for a bit of plaster.

  35. I think it adds a bit of charm...

  36. Oooooops!! I just a scratch in the centre of my very-expensive prescription glasses. I blame the damn cats who toss them on the floor every night.
