New Specs

  One of the greatest perks of working for this company has for me always been the fact that we get free glasses.  I've not bought my own glasses for I guess 17 years now.  I thought there for a while I was going to have to and I knew I'd never be able to afford the quality of eye wear that I've become accustomed to.    But the ones I'm wearing now, the ones that I got today are by far the most expensive ones ever.  Prices have gone up it is true but technology has improved also and therefore I have the best progressive lenses available. I have the highest index possible which makes my lenses very thin.   I have transitions, (the ones that change with the light)I have anti reflective coating and a completely rimless frame with rubber like temples that are so light weight I cannot feel them on my face.  And the cost of these glasses had I had to buy them?  Almost $800!  I think they are the most valuable thing I own, I think my car is not worth much more than that!  Very nice.  I like them.
   I'm getting a little more comfortable with the people that are our customers in this store.  They are different and more challenging than any customers I've ever experienced.  The manager, (my boss), is a little depressed with the situation as the sales are down and she has tried for two years to get things going but nothing seems to work.  I'm determined to try and help all I can.
   Friday Haleigh and I are spending the day together and that night we get to go see her mom in a play.  I'm excited about that.  I then have to work all weekend and all next week until Friday and I have three days off right in a row.  That will be nice.
  SO, that's all my news for now.

Oh, aren't glasses expensive these days? When I got my last pair of progressive lenses I needed to watch my $$$ and I picked a very inexpensive frame, but one I like a lot. These frames have gotten me more compliments than any I've ever worn! They are a thin rose colored metal on top, rimless on bottom, black outside bows with a little bling, and pink on the inside bows. I think it's the pink on the inside that seems to be very flattering to the skin or something, but everyone really loves them. It's a good feeling to have something that looks good because it's such a bother to have to wear glasses! However, I do enjoy being able to see! After all, these eyes are 66 years old!

Enjoy your day with Haleigh! Hope you do some fun things!
