It’s Goo Night from us – but not for too long

If all goes well, the Eye and his prostate will part company in hospital today. (Prostate cancer – a downside of being a man!)

Things being what they are, we’re not going to be dashing around the town centre for a while. But, with a bit of luck, and provided that the lockdown doesn’t last for ever, we’ll be back with thrilling pictures of bollards and scaffolding – and anything else that takes our fancy – before too long.

In the meantime, do stay healthy.

  1. Hope all goes well and you’re back soon, you must be so proud of the joy your blog brings to so many – it’s a wonderful escape from the current events 🙂

    • What can I say, Rob? I know the Camberley Eye doesn’t always bring joy to all in Knoll Road, but I try to stick to the facts. I’ll do my best to be “back soon” – many thanks.

    • Many thanks, Penny. I’m reminded of the old (apocryphal?) pilot’s saying that any landing from which you walk away is a good one. I’ve walked away (well, staggered, actually) from the op, so it must’ve been a good one too!

  2. Best wishes for your operation today and for a full and speedy recovery to follow. I look forward to “normal service” resuming ASAP. Good luck!

  3. Good luck with the op and I hope you have a speedy recovery. We need you keeping an eye on what is happening in the local environs.

    • Many thank for your good wishes. It’s funny how things work out. When I started this blog I had no particular plans. It just seemed a good idea to report on minor matters (I nearly wrote ‘trivia’) around the town. I was told that I’d run out of things to write about within a few weeks. That was about ten years ago… The op has been the first break in my daily posts – apart from on Christmas Day – since I started. It’s become a bit of a habit!

    • You must admit, Shirley, that my timing has been impeccable. Lockdown and lousy weather mean that I wouldn’t be wandering around the town anyway. So the fact that I can’t walk very far or fast at the moment isn’t much of a problem. But I’ll take your ‘advice’ and work on a speedy recovery.

  4. Best wishes for a successful Op and a speedy recovery David, mornings wont be the same without your posts, so come back soon – you’ll be missed.

  5. Hope all goes well, maybe Camberley will be a World beating town on your return and something about Pigs and flying comes to mind

  6. Best of luck with the op, I expect you will still be avoiding the same pot holes whenever you get back on your bike.

    • ‘Back on the beat’? Those were the days when policemen were a common sight in the town. Ken can tell us all about them. But I’ll do my best in my little Panda car (AKA on foot/on bike). Thanks, Denise, for your comments.

  7. Hope it goes well Sir – I had Radio Therapy back in 2012, but sadly in this last 2 years its reared its ugly head again – cancer in 2 cores after a Template Biopsy – now on ‘Watch & wait’ – a straight Prosectomy no longer an option after RT unfortunately, so maybe a HIFU !

    • I’m very sorry to read that, Speedicus. Each form of therapy has pros and cons, of course, and, as there’s no ‘right answer’, it’s a gamble whichever you chose. I opted for radical removal more on the basis of a gut ‘get rid of the thing’ emotion than any carefully considered analysis, otherwise I might have opted for RT too. Only time – and histology – will tell whether my gut betrayed me. (Perhaps I’ll start a discussion group to compare catheters and leg-bags….)

    • Many thanks, Ken. Yes, I’ll have to get back to reading council ‘stuff’ soonest. Trust all is well with you – I imagine things haven’t been easy for you. We must meet up as soon as friend Covid allows…
