Eyeglass Busted6:30am - As I was changing Boid's food and water, I lost my balance and fell on the couch [Boid's cage is on a hook next to the couch]. When I went down, my eyeglasses [Still on my head] pressed against the couch and the temple came loose from the frame!
At first I thought that the glasses were broken. On examination what happened was, the screw that holds the temple to the frame is a "break away" screw! The metal hinge is slightly bent. But other than that, I am able to have the frame repaired!
Wow! Am I lucky 😀
9am - Target Optical
Highest priority is to get my eyeglasses fixed.
Then, buy a propane hose for the new Wave 3 catalytic heater. I've got sooooo many things to do on my plate! And of course, go camping with Scampy!
It seems to be very busy with stuff to do, is a whole lot better than having hardly anything to do!
9:30am - Boid's training
Every morning, for about 10 minutes, Boid and I go into the bathroom for his training. The bathroom is our smallest room, and Boid cannot get into much trouble there.
Using one of Boid's cage perches, I take Boid out of his cage. Boid has never been terrified of my hand. But, he is not comfortable with my hand yet. That will come, in time.
The object of Boid's daily training, is for him to accept that he is safe with me around, when he is outside of his cage. That takes time. Boid is a very tame birdy right now. In the future, Boid and I will become pals!
12:30pm - Jeweler fixed eyeglasses!
We went to Target Optical, and the tech there was NOT able re-attach the temple to the frame. And while the tech was working on the glasses, the other temple fell off!!
The tech suggested going to a jeweler. And that's what we did. Before we left Target Optical, the tech gave us several sets of tiny screws. Wasn't that a nice thing?
Then we looked for a jeweler on the net. The first jeweler that we phoned turned us down with, "We don't work on glasses!"
The second jeweler told us, "Come on in! Let's see what I can do!" This second jeweler fixed the glasses fine. Only charged $5. But we paid $20.
4:30pm - Wave 3 heater installed
We now have the newly purchased Wave 3 Olympian Catalytic Heater installed inside Scampy. You may view the installation in the pic below.
On the back of Wave 3, we installed a couple of hooks which allow the heater to hang from a storage door or from a drawer.
When Wave 3 was tested this afternoon, it quickly became apparent that the lowest temperature setting might be too warm for Little Scampy. We'll have to give the new heater another test in order to find out.
Little iPhone captured an image
iPhone would like to share this image with you.
For the past few weeks while driving around Apple Valley and Victorville, we have been intrigued by a very white appearing mountain in the distance. But, Little iPhone has not been able to capture that image because we could not get a clear view.
This afternoon, we got a clear view. We don't know what makes the white appearing portion of this image. But we like the look of it!
