The eye-patch was a way for the mods to say they have a reason to turn a blind eye...



But now since just about everyone else is doing it, my idea doesn't hold water.

What's behind the eye-patch?

Well, here's the real-deal. Springer has been through quite a few health ordeals in the past month. One of them was that he went almost instantly and totally blind in his left eye about a month ago. Well, once he got healthy enough from his other health issues to get to a doctor, he found out he had a cataract in his left eye (actually he has one in the other as well which he will have to have fixed in another 10 days, but the one in the left made him legally blind!)

He had surgery on Monday to remove the cataract, and the patches were a show of support for his suffering. THANK YOU ALL!

Right now he looks like he went 10 rounds with Randall Tex Cobb using the strategy of beating the opponent with his left eye against their fist.

Of course, we've had great fun with the shiner in real life...the typical jokes:

"She said shut up. I thought she said standup...and the rest is history."

or

"I asked him if he didn't mind seeing me for 2 or 3 days...about the second day he started to juuuust get a glimpse of me....LOL!"

He's still not recovered and, in fact, we're probably going to get him back to the doc tomorrow if things aren't better than they are today.

I appreciate the show of support from the mods...and it's been fun watching the transformation of member avatars. Springer cannot come on line much yet (nor has he been able to for a month), because trying to read with one eye gives him a splitting headache. But he sends his thanks to all involved. It helps to know people sincerely wish you recovery when you're battling things.

Many many thumbs up to everybody

(p.s. MA...Springer got a big kick out of you bringing up the rose-colored glasses. He still thinks that's one of the funnest moments on ATS! Thanks for remembering!)

Ok, try THIS. It's the first image. Ignore the other pics, it's from another post (but yes, that is me).

Not only are mods people too,
we're quite nice when ATSers are having problems in real life.

Still wishing Springer a speedy recovery,

Valhall: Our prayers go out to you and Springer. Hope things get better really quickly. I even made a pre-raphaelite avatar with an eyepatch for the occasion.

what better way to honor a faithful member than to create an 8+ page thread about a wave of change on ATS? Immortality at it's best.

Best Wishes.

Actually, several of us believed the National Pirates Week thing,..

so we put on our patch, ransacked the Biz Consultant office at ATS headquarters, took the Harley's in the staff fleet parking lot and replaced them with our moped's, and for the most part cleaned out the fridge.


But we are sorry. We will try and fix some of the other things, like try to get some repair money for the damage. (I have already contacted the son of a recently deceased rich oil magnate, who has 25 million stuck in a Nigerian account, and he just needed the ATS account number's to transfer the money to us.)




(but also wishing you well, and looking forward to your return.)
