Well, they work

gandle(4 NE)December 28, 2013

Sort of anyway. If you cross your ankles, comb your hair forward and whistle, they work. Just kidding. But you do have to look not quite directly at the object you are looking at. Thats an exaggeration too. They are heavy, ugly and I've been warned not to walk with them on but put on regular glasses.

I am writing about my new goofy looking glasses as I'm sure you have guessed. At the price they charged they ought to teach me to do calisthentics and yodel but I'll settle for seeing the monitor and reading books.

Guess you aren't going to get rid of me that easily

Things are quiet here but New Years day we will be up at the farm, all our kids, grand kids and great grand kids will be there. House will be like a zoo but so much fun with the greats. Son says we will have prime rib, that may take a couple of cows.

See what happens when I can see the monitor, I run on forever. Enough.

Glad to have you back. Both my aunts on my father's side had macular degeneration and I go faithfully to the eye doctor who says I have no sign of it. I am very glad to hear of your solution, even if it isn't a fashion statement.

Yay!

From the description of the glasses, I'll bet you look very Clark Kent-ish. :o)

Have fun at the party and come back to the GP with a full report!

Oh happy news for us all! We don't get rid of you and you can see! I'm so pleased you can see again. Goofy or not, they can keep you in touch? That's fantastic! I can't think of enough good words.
