Thank you, readers!
The new glasses:
Fancy progressive trifocals! What a relief! (I had managed to tangle myself up in computer wiring, and while attempting to disentangle myself, rose from my chair, stepped on my glasses, and scratched the lenses badly. It was time to replace them, because I'm hard on glasses, but still!)
I have also discovered over the past few weeks that it's virtually impossible to paint trim properly if you can't see well! So. since my last task is painting a few miles of interior trim white, these glasses will really help.
NOTE Oops, this picture is upside down. I did notice. But I've got to move on and prime another wall.
