I'm winding down now. Here's one more slideshow of some of the statuary on the west-facing façade of the cathrédrale Notre-Dame d'Amiens, built between 1220 and 1290 — 800 years ago. Amiens is a medium-size city about 70 miles north of Paris, in Picardy and near the English Channel coast.
Weather report: our high temperature yesterday was above 90ºF, and it was at least 90ºF up in our loft space by about 7:00 p.m. Our thermometer up there read 32.8ºC (91.4ºF). I've been busy watering potted plants this morning, because it's supposed to be even hotter today that it was yesterday. Oh, and good-bye July.
Here are two two selfies I took yesterday to show me at age 71 and also the new glasses I got last week and this week. The older wire-framed glasses are new lenses in frames that I already had been wearing for a few years.
The newer plastic glasses are new frames and lenses. These frames make me think of glasses I wore back in the 1950s and 1960s, when I was a kid. How about that pandemic buzzcut?
The new glasses look good on you. I hope they work good and you see better. The church photos are interesting to see.ReplyDelete
I like both eyeglases, the main thing is you like them too.ReplyDelete
Nice slide show. The statuary and sculptures at Amiens are really amazing.
The new glasses look good on you. I hope they feel lighter and improve your vision. All the carving and sculpture at Amien is amazing. I am so sorry it was bombed!ReplyDelete
I like those new glasses which go well with your eye color. Haircut looks right for a heatwave;-) The Atlas-type statues are remarkable and humorous too. They remind me of our world under this pandemic. Carry on and stay save.ReplyDelete
None of those statues has glasses, though! LOL Imagine living back then, when your eyes started to decline... no glasses, just miserable difficulties in seeing.ReplyDelete
Thanks for showing us!
Cute and lovable! RoderickReplyDelete
Somehow the new glasses make you look younger and I'd stick with the buzzcut, heatwave or not. ;) My 2 cents.ReplyDelete
Both glasses look good. The wire frame look more "mod." Enjoyed another stop by Amiens. Maybe one day in person. Hot here to in CA, a good day for gazpacho.ReplyDelete
So opinions about the new glasses are divided... I'm breaking in the plastic ones for now. I'll keep the wire-frames as my backup.ReplyDelete
