As I left their office, I noticed that there was a gap through which I could get to a dirt trail that leads back to Front Street, where I live, cutting a couple of blocks off the return walk. I'm lucky I went that way, because as I came onto Front Street, I saw the FedEx van heading toward me, having pulled away from my house unable to make the delivery. Yeow! Coming down the street at a run was Lisa, who was waving at me to stop the driver.
Fortunately for me, the driver had a delivery to make at the Imerys diatomaceous earth processing plant between where I was and my house, so I intercepted him, produced my ID, and signed for my package. Whew!
Here's the new set of glasses. After three years of slowly lengthening vision, I now need to re-learn the use of the new progressive lenses, but I think I can already feel myself squinting less.
Besides the new regular glasses, I also got a set of prescription sunglasses, so I no longer have to scratch up my regular lenses (which have some rather expensive anti-glare coating) with clip-ons.
