I wear two pair of bifocals. My eyes are neither good nor bad enough to get trifocals. One pair is exclusively for the computer; the other everything else. Now, because I go back and forth from the computer, I wear both pairs on lanyards or whatever one calls those strings. Does anything see anything wrong with that?
Apparently she thinks it makes me look "old." Hell, I am old. More importantly, it keeps me from hunting down a pair of glasses, or at least the ones I need to wear.
All is well though, as she continues to sleep in the guest room.

Tomorrow will be a good day. She will be out almost all day…and I've got a couple of Marx Brothers movies to watch.

I am still alive, though I've had little about which to write over the past week. Part is a lack of imagination, part ennui, though I did have my kids and grandkids in town.
I suppose I could espouse on the Secret Service matter, about which I care little, if at all. The President is always protected, notwithstanding the dalliances of a few Secret Service guys.
There's always the price of gasoline, which is just going to kill the economy; and, of course, the lack of job creation that the fat cats are supposed effect with tax cuts. The House just passed one (the Senate probably won't) and those old Bush tax cuts did nothing.
Finally, however, income disparity is becoming an issue and maybe a focus in the campaign and next year's Congress…but I doubt it.
Romney continues to cater to the wealthy, Obama, well, I have no idea what he's doing.
Surely we have better candidates somewhere.
