Incognito


I lost my regular pair of really ugly, not at all cute, sunglasses about a month ago and have been pedaling around without sunglasses.  Not a very smart thing in Flagstaff where the suns rays are pretty intense.  A bug flew in my eye on my way home from work on Thursday afternoon so I knew it was time to bite the bullet and put down the cash.  Even in a time of economic uncertainty and Congressional insanity, one still has to protect one's eyes.  In Target,  $17 is on the high side for what you will pay for a pair of sunglasses but I felt these were worth the money.  The frames feel just heavy enough and sit securely on my face.  I was hoping to find a similar substantial pair of cat eye frames in red or yellow (my all time favorite frame and the best for shape of face) but I like the classic Ray Ban style and tortoise shell finish.  Other than the fact that I look nothing like her in any respect, sorta Audrey Hepburn on a bicycle.

Thumbs up on the sunglasses. They're totally classic.

Since I am unable to hold on to a pair of sunglasses for more than a few months, I cannot afford to continually replace Ray Bans, thus the economy shades.
