    Tom, you made me a fan of Zenni; with your wild pugilistic lifestyle, (albeit accidental), perhaps a cheaper, yet just as attractive pair would better suited. I could see you in frame number #278521

    Oh dear! My glasses are really expensive as well and I guard them with my life, especially since I got laid off and lost my vision coverage. Maybe some black electrical tape might be more becoming? Good luck with your hunt for glasses, sounds like this pair is telling you something. :(

    spinning down the rabbit hole? sounds like a lost chapter by lewis carroll!
    even with the blue tape, i prefer these to the black ones you showed us last week. ;)

    Karma, Tom, Karma. This year’s crop will be terrific to balance it all out. Besides, electric blue is so fetching…

    Tom…that is too hilarious! So glad you managed to get your lens back…and yes you may well be starting a new fashion trend!

    You have my sympathies.

    One word for you Tommy boy… contacts. And yes I can testify that the multi lens versions do work on our increasingly aged eyes.

    Nice hoop house, love the roof shape.

    Hilarious escapades. Thank goodness for good friends. While you are waiting for inspiration (or possibly lottery winnings) to guide your acquisition of replacement glasses, play up the tape accent. Find different colors of tape and ‘accessorize’ by changing it regularly. Islanders can pull this off.
    Your hoop house looks fantastic! Harbour House Hotel on Saltspring Island has two about that size on their organic farm. They have not bought salad greens year round for their restaurant for over 3 years now and they are also able to supply several local restaurants and a farm stand in season! (Their maple syrup made from tapped native broad leaf maples is pretty darned spectacular as well…) http://www.saltspringharbourhouse.com/organic-farm

    Wowowow. What an ordeal!
    Firstly – I had no idea progressive lenses costed that much!
    [I just need Hi-index lenses cuz' I'm blind... for the most part, hehe.]
    Secondly – THAT HOOP HOUSE! I think you need to keep us FARRRRR more informed with that! The SIZE alone makes me salivate…
    Uggg… spring needs to get here fast. You have rain right now – I’m under 5 inches of snow still! Curse you weird Northeast weather! ::shakes fist::

    You know, if you tape up the other side in the same way people might think they came that way. You could just be starting a new glasswear trend…

    I agree with one commenter; assorting the tape to your outfit would be the stylish and frugal way to go.

    Have you tried JC Penny Optical? I’ve gotten 2 pairs of glasses through them and they were about $350, not bad for progressive lenses and they have a reasonable selection of styles. And very awesome hoop house!!
