New Sunglasses

Sunglasses are important to me. I am rarely without them. If I go to the mailbox I have my sunglasses on. Photosensitivity affects more green-eyed people than other colors—and I have green eyes—, brown being the least sensitive and blue being medium, depending on the person, of course. But I can hardly open my eyes in sunlight, so they are constantly with me.

Recently one of the ear pieces broke and I rushed to the optometrist and they repaired it but it freaked me out a little bit thinking I could have been without glasses for a period of time so I purchased another pair recently. I don't buy the prescription ones anymore because my vision has improved and don't particularly need them to drive so I just purchase a decent pair. I like the ones that are big, not because of the fashion trends because I've worn BIG glasses since the 70s. I like them big to cover as much of my line of vision as possible. When you live in the desert and travel back to California a couple of times a year and drive through the Oregon, Nevada, California and Idaho deserts you NEED strong sunglasses.

This is the old pair of the very dark glasses I used for sailing. T
he ear pieces are so stretched out that they will hardly stay on, but they are very dark for sailing—which I don't do anymore since we're not on the California coast, but they'll do in a pinch. The very dark ones are very hard to find anymore also.

This is the pair I bought a couple of months ago.

This is the new extra pair I bought at Costco, which I believe are better than the expensive top designer ones at Macy's and cost far less.

When I went to pay for them he brought out this "designer" case and the pink cloth for cleaning them. I knew right then I had the right pair, chicks!! LOL

And read the "fairy tale" on the cleaning cloth. Darling! It says "Once upon a time in a land far, far away called Pacoima there were two nice girls who liked stuff. Juicy Couture swept the land and they lived happily ever after". Pacoima is in southern California.

I feel like Marilyn Monroe now. :-) <-----------Me, smiling at ya.
