Susan took this photo while she was here recently. I found it interesting because of the little tree in the center. I think the area was near the Portland Rose Gardens.
Do you wear glasses on your face or in your pocket? I wore glasses all the time for about 40 years, always the first thing I put on my face every morning. Bob's always worn his glasses in his pocket. To make matters worse he wears them loose in his shirt pocket, not in one of the clip on cases available to people wearing pocket glasses.
I always had one pair of glasses, and always knew where they were because they were secure on my face. Bob has assorted pairs of prescription glasses scattered around the house. Two pair are his latest prescription and only god knows how old the rest are. He's constantly looking for his glasses.
Seems we're always in search mode for a pair of glasses. Things can get tense when we have competing flashlights and cross paths hot on the trail for a lost pair. Sometimes they disappear for extended periods of time. Recently the light dawned while he was in his recliner and told him a pair that had been lost for some time was in the back of his closet in a shirt pocket. Sure enough, there they were.
It's rare when he knows the location of the two latest pairs at the same time. Once his prescription included correction for distance vision I made the argument it was time to quit wearing pocket glasses and wear glasses on his face like the rest of us. He ignored my suggestion.
Recently he called me to the patio door to look at a Bouvier dog that lives near us. He saw a Bouvier, I saw a French bulldog. Considerable difference in size there. It was a bulldog.
This morning he had a lab appointment he's always done alone. I popped out of bed early showered, and dressed before I appeared in the living room. He wanted to know why I was dressed so early. I told him until he has an eye exam and the doctor approves him driving without corrective lens I would be driving.
The ball is in his court now.
