    Covid vaccine 13 days ago, after shingles, no relationship.
    Struggling with ophthalmic shingles, right sight of my head.
    Right eye vision cloudy, maybe 25%, loss. Clinic review in two weeks.
    Hope you all have happy outcomes as the vax success rolls on.
    MCFC, come on the Blues!

    Have you tried Gabapentin for the nerve pain?

    I like this very much @Muddy Cyclist with the sea, rocks, and reflections...
    A brilliant seascape.

    Popeye wouldn't do that...Would he?
    Thank you for the painting compliment.

    Love your painting, the clouds, distant mountains, the trees, and the effect you have created with the field in front. You always manage to create a tremendous amount of detail.

    I am so glad you have the clinic review @True Blue

    When I had chickenpox some years ago, it went to my eyes. And I was blind. With the care of the hospital and a marvellous dedicated doctor I got my eyesight fully back two years later.

    Take care.

    His Lordship is behaving himself. No more phone episodes. He is actually being an Angel this minute, allowing me to do my digital painting on my iPad...

    I, however, am having a sleepless night. No idea why. Yesterday was good. Was in the sun for a bit. I have no immediate worries. I did stuff yesterday. So, this is out of the blue. I am not sleepy, but going to try again after posting this digital painting in Procreate. It started out as a blossoming cherry tree against a blue sky...but ended up as this...perhaps because I wasn't sleeping...

    Thank you @Muddy Cyclist - I did self censor part of the word but evidently that is not good enough - dad called his newts Kinka-newt and (not nearly but almost) drunk-as-a-newt but replacing the word ‘drunk’ with another word in common circulation amongst gentle folk starting with the letter ‘p’

    Therin lies the clue!

    There is a high-bar on this forum - openly searchable, open to all ages - but if you need to self-censor then the word / phrase in question is not allowed and likely to be moderated.

    Good morning everyone from a very quiet and pleasant start here in the dark and dangerous north
    The wonder wheel of something made with courgettes and something made with mixed peppers and the addition of chorizo for the taste buds to get involved came in at 5.2 this am.

    We have a gingko tree in our garden - two tiny plants were given to my mother by the nurserymen at Westonbirt Arboretum about 20 years ago and she gave one to us. It’s now about 3 feet high and needed to be moved - they do grow quite slowly. Anyhow - rootball was deeper than envisaged - it’s now in a large terracotta pot and I will need to milk my aching back for at least 2 days, possibly longer unless my acting wearies me; “It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

    @BRSBRI - interesting bike but I think that Apple are ripping people off with their latest watch design.
    @Muddy Cyclist - another excellent seascape - savage sky and great reflections - will be interesting to compare with V2.
    @gennepher - absolutely smashing winter scene with a stunning tree - are you pinning for a holiday abroad? Is Popeye worried?

    I have ordered some more white rice paper - should have done it weeks ago - still, there is more of the yellow paper left. A couple of birds today - spring is in the air - “boing” - have a fabulous Friday - koffy calls (other sounds available).

    Thank you for your compliment on my Sea paintings. I think we all learn from one another, I look at your style of watercolour and admire and try to get similar effects on my hills but without success. I do like the way you have painted the foreground field so much colour, texture and intelligent brush strokes. The water logged area waorks very well giving depth and setting the mood.

    Hugs for ongoing reaction, I hope it passes soon.

    The funny bit is when names in common usage for birds and species of human kind are moderated, one wonders where the country is going.
    Apparently breast feeding is now being outlawed in some quarters it has to be gender neutral chest feeding.

    Seems he will need a minor operation, timescale 12 months plus. Unless it becomes an emergency. :grumpy:

    Thank you.
    Yet another good imaginative piece from you. I can see a good frosty Morning the light being captured and abstracted by the fingers of Frost with a flight to escape from the grips of the winter.
