It took a couple weeks of his being here before Alex finally admitted he needs glasses to see farther than across the room. Of course, he made this admission in such a way that I wasn’t sure at first if he actually wanted them or not. But after some additional prodding, he finally admitted that he would find glasses useful, especially for driving and seeing wildlife—which, if it isn’t moving, may as well not exist for him.
We’re going to research who in Alpine is good at optometry, but in the meantime, I thought I’d put out a call for the cost of glasses for Alex. It has been several years since I bought glasses for myself (the last time was when I was in Minneapolis), so I’m sure I’ll have to be sitting down when I find out how much the damned things cost (everybody wants to live like a neurosurgeon these days). Donations will determine our budget.
Please spare Alex the embarrassment of only being able to afford really geeky frames. Well, no, that’s not the real truth… He would actually react very well to cheap frames, but I am the one who will have to look at him. Please be generous for my sake.
If you wish to make a contribution to assist with Alex’s eyeglasses, you can earmark your gift for his benefit.
