Glasses and Swimsuits
I told you guys I now have reading glasses? It makes me feel
very grandmotherly. When I went to Williamson Optical for
a checkup, Dr. Hammer deduced that I needed reading glasses.
I of course fought him all the way and went home without glasses
only to return to see him two months later when I couldnt
read my People Magazine. He already had written my eye prescription,
so I didnt need to get my eyes re-examined. I just had
to find some cool looking specs.
my sunglasses with me, which are classic Ray Bans, because
I wanted frames similar to that. What I wound up with are
gold rimmed, oval shaped frames. They are the least offensive
looking of all the styles I saw. They also go with all my
outfits. But then, I only wear them when Im home reading
in the evening, so it isnt like a lot of people will
see me with them. But thats not the point. I would know.
is, I dress to please myself, and not anyone else. Therefore,
I dress the same if Im alone as if Im going out.
friend, Jacques, who is sadly no longer with us, had a great
concept. After I got dressed, I would look in the mirror and

go ahead and leave home or change immediately."
would always be the voice behind the mirror. And we often
talked about what a wonderful invention such a mirror would
be. Thankfully, Ive always had good fashion sense, so
I wouldnt personally be in need of such a mirror. But
plenty of people are and they are the ones who dont
in the summer is very simple. Its only a bathing suit.
If I have to go out, then its a tank top and shorts.
I avoid wearing shoes whenever possible.
I ever told you about my bathing suit collection? No kidding,
I have about 2 dozen suits, mostly two piece (some with alternate
tops with the same bottoms). Getting me dressed in the summer
is simple. Ive discussed it with my aide, Terry, who
absolutely agrees with me. Ive often asked her if she
ever had a client like me before, where each day in the summer
at least, involves spending the entire day on the beach or
in the water. She responds the same each time I ask her. "As
Ive told you before, you are a unique client that way."
answers my question. So, the bespeckled me is signing off.
Have a great day!
