I came across an old photo of my Mom the other day.
She is standing on the lush lawn in front of my sister’s home, her right arm folded primly across her body. Hanging from her arm is her trusty handbag. If you have every seen pictures of Queen Elizabeth II of the UK on an outing, you have seen the formal handbag pose.
Mom’s handbag was a treasure trove of necessities for the modern woman — and for my Dad. You see, whenever they went out of errands together, Mom carried the money, bankbooks, receipts, you name it, and Dad’s reading glasses. He never lost a pair when she was guarding them.
After she died, he resorted to carrying his glasses with case in his shirt pocket. That worked most of the time. He was fortunate that bank employees and medical receptionists would recognize his glass case on the counter or desk and help him remember to put them in his pocket before leaving.
A Service That Returns Your Glasses
You may already be aware that a quality pair of eyeglasses can cost $300 - $400. Even if you are not on a tight budget, losing your glasses can prevent you from going about your daily business. If you can’t drive without them, how do you get to the doctor for a replacement?
While you are at it, maybe you want to order a tag for your glasses. There are even special color tags for your child’s glasses. It’s a great solution for everyone in your family, including elderly parents.
