Giraffe Glasses

My daughter Nexi told me that I need to change my glasses. She says my half-moon spectacles make me look more like her grandfather than her dad. (Apparently she formed this opinion during the Nex Factor singing competition at the weekend). I am commanded to get some more up-to-date glasses to wear when we perform our family song at next Saturday's final!

I decided to discreetly visit a few opticians in Raffsburgh to try on some frames. On my own ...

No chance! The family guessed my quest and insisted on coming along, 'to advise'. Nexi brought a camera and photographed me in a variety of frames. 'So we can all make a sensible decision at home!' said she.

Here I am in bespectacled splendour!

'The Executive'

'The Artist'

'The Singer-songwriter'

'The Astronomer'
Which will it be?

I prefer the astronomer - he looks VERY intellectual!

Thank you, Weaver of Grass. I do have an interest in astronomy - did you know that my blog is ranked at number 5 if you Google 'mobile astronomical observatory'!!

Cool glasses! Just make sure to wear one of those necklace/leash things in case they slip off your nose. It's a loooong way down, you know...

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
