Re: "Cowboy Dinosaur" for the masses
Cowboys/Dinosaurs and living in the old west has it's disadvantages. I
just took (last weekend) a bullet bounding back off a reactive steel
target in my right eye. It did some significant damage to the iris and
cornea. I will be out of (stereoscopic) fossil hunting commission for
at least the rest of the fall though. Depending on how the surgery
goes over the next months, I will get some vision back in it we think.
I currently am 20/100 in my right eye with the acuity of looking
through a coke bottle bottom.
Here I am an advocational paleontologist with a pirate patch on his
right eye soon to be walking around the Wyoming/Montana hills looking
for dinosaurs next spring.
My question is to the list. Didn't one of the early famous
paleontologists out here have a patch? I seem to remember a photo of
someone running around one eyed looking for dinos.
