    Default Old Man Grafting

    My wife thought it would be funny to take a picture of me looking under my bifocals while grafting. 12 out of 20 isn't too shabby!

    Aha, I don't know what you mean by 'old' man.
    You look like a 4 y.o. playing with his toys. See how serious you are at it?

    My wife gives me a hard time and calls me an old man when I'm wearing bifocals and still can't see. Sorry if I offended anyone, that wasn't my intention.

    You did not offend me, I think no one.

    I don't think you offended any one. You just made us think of younger days!

    I used to take off my glasses when I was transplanting piles of tiny seedlings. These were so tiny they make grafting age larva, look like telephone poles. That was back when I was 40 y.o. or younger. Then I got older, and I also developed a desire to graft and grow cultured queens.

    Taking off my glasses is no longer a helpful maneuver. I've tried using those large magnifiers with illumination by flourescent lights, and just about every other type of magnifying device, designed to assist in these types of endeavors.

    Presently, my favorite visual assistance device is to place a pair of reading glasses, over my prescription glasses. Though this looks odd, for me, it has been the most efficient and effective way to see what I'm doing while I'm grafting.

    Same here, I wear my prescriptions with readers in front of them, even for just checking through hives. Works very good for me.
