Albert Öman

My 2nd great grandfather Albert Öman was born on 16 May 1856 in Håkansön near Piteå, Sweden to Johan Öman and Maria Johansdotter. He was the 9th of 10 children. He married Brita Johanna Strand on 18 December 1886, and they had 10 children, 3 of whom died before age 20. The other seven children, including my great grandfather, all emigrated to western Washington. Albert and Brita remained in Sweden, where Albert died 21 June 1929 also in Håkansön.

Contacts?

Time to consider getting contacts I think.

I can’t read the computer screen wearing my glasses. I get glowy blurry double vision. I can read it just fine with my left eye without glasses, which is essentially what I do.

But it’s tiring.

(No, it’s not my prescription. The glasses work just fine when I’m reading a book or even my tablet screen. There’s just something about the brightness or frequency of the laptop screen that messes with my focus.)
