More shots from today

Gran Quivira


Me at Quarai

In my new bifocal sunglasses. The last pair were prescription sunglasses that I used all the time for driving in daylight but they were not bifocals. The new ones allow me to walk around and read while wearing sunglasses. (Those who have never worn bifocals probably cannot appreciate the ground not being where it should be.)

It was an incredibly beautiful day.

A bifocals! I have "blended lenses" because I am vain. I hate that line that looks like another wrinkle. I am considering getting real sunglasses and not the ones that change in the sun. That way I could drive in the car and not feel that I need more darkness. Because there is UV protection in all glass in cars now, they don't get dark enough! I tell you it's a pain in the ass. Speaking of which, I came thru my routine colonscopy clean as a whistle!

Congrats on the clean bill of health, Susan! Mine are "progressive" lenses too. I have never had a line in the middle. But I have been wearing bifocals since I was 43. They make life much nicer.

Good news about the colonoscopy, Susan. A right pain in the ass it is, not the procedure, but the fecking prep.

I can't use the blended lenses, because they make me nauseous, but I do have bifocal sunglasses.
