Sights to Behold

I've been behind corrective lenses since I was 10.  Although I don't recall what originally sent me to the eye doctor, I have a vivid recollection of the "glasses" I had to wear after having my pupils dilated for the exam.
They were made from what felt like photo film, and I'm sure I wore them longer than I needed because I thought they were groovy.

Hey, it was 1970 --- cut me some slack.

When I turned 18, I bought myself contacts.  Of course, there have always been glasses, and, for the last several years, I forsook my contacts because, really --- where was I going to go that needed me to be cute and eye-makeup-y?

Long story short, I'm back in contacts some of the time.  The week before last, after a long time with what I thought were glasses and eyesight troubles, I had an eye exam.  No need to change my glasses, but I do have extremely dry eyes.  So, eye drops for me, and while I was there, why not some contacts, too?  I'd budgeted for glasses, and contacts were much, much cheaper.  I do have to have readers when I wear them for reading or close work, but that's no big deal.  A trip to Dollar Tree and it was done.  The best part?  Getting to wear sunglasses when driving.  Driving with "regular" glasses can give me ferocious headaches.

I decided to go through my mother's wallet yesterday and found a nice collection of photos.  Especially of Briton and Hannah.  For reference, this is them sort of now
and this is them in a photo Mama carried

Although we all adore them, that rabbit seems singularly unimpressed.


  1. Snazzy glasses lady. Contact lenses. Good for you!
    Those photos of the kids are priceless. I gave mom a very small photo of Al and zach last night and I thought she was going to kiss it, but she tried to eat it. Oh well! She laughed during parts of the visit!

  2. So you WERE always cool ... ;-)

    OMG that photo - you're right though, the bunny just doesn't care. It's like he's Honey Badger.

  3. Groovy - lol. Geeze, I wish I could wear contacts, but they never worked for me. That bunny is trying to ESCAPE!!!

Not Really in My Color Wheel

10.  Red There isn't a lot of red stuff in my life.  Never has been.  I remember exactly three red tops I've had in my life, maybe a couple of skirts with red print.  My one red fashion statement has been my red cowboy boots, modeled after my Daddy's red patent leather ones with the gold toe tips.

Red just doesn't suit my coloring.  Mama could wear it.  Hannah can wear it.  It's just never been a big part of any of my color selection life.  I gravitate toward purples and blues and grays, some green.  I avoid orange at all costs.  At least red doesn't awaken that kind of loathing in me.

Guess Free Association is our best plan, then.

And you?  What does red do for you?


9 days until you can submit Knitters' Hunk and Knitters' Chick nominations!

I am late to a lot of parties.  I scarcely ever go to movies, so by the time I watch a film via streaming, or borrow a DVD from Netflix, everyone's fever has come and gone.  Since I read non-fiction almost exclusively, novels that everyone else has long since read and fawned over don't often appear on my radar.  Hence,
If memory serves, Kathy's daughter talked about this book in one of her reading posts over the last few months.  Briton read it long ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it, and it is his copy that I've borrowed and am just sailing through. What an engaging read.  Most of you have probably already read it;  did you like it this much?

For Those About to Nominate. . .


The names of your three Knitters' Hunk and three Knitters' Chick in the comments section, if you please.  You have until 6 PM Eastern Saturday night to submit and/or change your nominees.
