I wore glasses since I was 14, first for reading, then all the time. Now, with my "bionic" lenses, I don't need them at all. It's great!



 



 

DeanT - Posted - 05/25/2016:  05:13:52


Glasses since 4th grade here... no-line progressive trifocals now. 

dat - Posted - 05/25/2016:  05:47:35


I have a pair of 1.25 power cheaters somewhere, well probably 2 or three pairs, but I never can find them when I need them

I've needed glasses for distance since I was in third grade or so.  A couple years ago I went in for an exam and the doctor seemed to be pretty disturbed that I was over 40 and didn't need reading glasses.  "You'll definitely need them by the time you are 43."



I'm now 45 and I've noticed I need to take my glasses off to view things really close up, like if I need to remove a splinter in my finger.  I've also noticed I have trouble reading small white lettering on a black background, especially if it's a curved background (like trying to read the ingredients on a can of soup).  But other than that I don't feel like I need reading glasses.  I definitely haven't reached the "my arms are too short" point or that I even feel a need to move books further away to read them.  (And I do a lot of reading, so I'd think I'd notice if I had to move the books further away.)

DeanT - Posted - 05/25/2016:  10:16:35


We have magnifying glasses laying around the house. Really helps with things like soup cans and cell phones, and ticks on dogs, etc...

dat - Posted - 05/25/2016:  10:51:08


I had a magnifying glass in our kitchen, then my bride took it to work,  I need to get another new one

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/25/2016:  11:14:15


As kids, we used magnifying glasses to set things on fire, out in the sun.

dat - Posted - 05/25/2016:  12:09:07


we did too, plenty of fires started with magnifying glasses just to try it

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/25/2016:  12:27:51


I would have to carry one in my purse--it's usually when I'm shopping that I'm reading ingredients.



I could be like Sherlock Homes!

dat - Posted - 05/25/2016:  12:33:38


you'ld have to get one of those fancy hats with two fronts, one on the front and one on the back 

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/25/2016:  13:56:03


I love a good hat.

DeanT - Posted - 05/25/2016:  14:06:17


I like wearing a hat when my hair gets long. Then I don't have to mess with my hair

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/25/2016:  15:20:59


Hats make my head sweat, xcept in winter

DeanT - Posted - 05/25/2016:  17:23:54


they do keep my head from getting sunburned...

OM45GE - Posted - 05/26/2016:  03:11:38


I wear Panama fedoras in the summer. They do stop sunburned heads and keep you cooler. 

dat - Posted - 05/26/2016:  05:48:01


I wear a hat year round, keeps my ears from getting sunburned

DeanT - Posted - 05/26/2016:  06:10:01


My legs always get tanned from jogging, my wife laughs at my white feet

a sunburn on the top of your feet hurts

OM45GE - Posted - 05/26/2016:  12:16:54


Love the tan line cartoon!

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/26/2016:  12:41:31


I get my left arm tanned way more than my right, but I've avoided this ugly problem - poor guy.

dat - Posted - 05/26/2016:  14:29:47


I was listening to the radio this morning and they were talking about how the sun was the biggest cause of wrinkles.  no matter what moisturizers or what ever you use, the sun does it's job

OM45GE - Posted - 05/26/2016:  14:46:30


Sun block helps a lot, but moisturizers can't undo the damage. 

dat - Posted - 05/26/2016:  14:59:09


I smear down with sunblock if I know I'm gonna be out and I think about it,   I'm fish belly white and burn quick,  my arms and face are tan for me but I'm still light complected. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/26/2016:  16:57:56


With all my running, I'm always tanned. I'm doomed, because I never use sun screen

OM45GE - Posted - 05/27/2016:  02:57:26


I've had skin cancer. Fortunately it was the "good" kind but I'm still paranoid about getting too much sun. It's tough with all my outdoor activities. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/27/2016:  06:19:25


My Dad, my Sister and my wife have all had skin cancer removed, and they've spent much less time outdoors than I have. 

OM45GE - Posted - 05/27/2016:  06:54:31


I got mine on my lower back just above my waist band, which seemed odd in that the area isn't exposed as much as others. The doc said I must have had a bad burn there about 3-5 years before the cancer showed up judging from its size. I thought back and remembered a time about five years back when I had been sailing with a close friend. It was a beautiful day and I wanted to take my shirt off. I asked him if he would put sun block on my back. He did but a few hours later he said, "Wow, that s*** really works!" I asked him what he meant and he said he didn't believe that the stuff worked and had just sort of slapped it on and hadn't covered my lower back. I got a bad burn with blisters and five years later...cancer.

dat - Posted - 05/27/2016:  07:21:24


as a kid, I got sunburned a lot, big ol water blisters on my shoulders and thighs from riding in a boat 

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/27/2016:  08:49:05


I used to burn a lot in late spring, sometimes it'd be peeling, then after that I'd tan.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/27/2016:  09:38:41


I never used to burn.  Always got tan really easily.



Now that I work indoors mostly, I find I burn more than tan, probably because I'm not getting that constant exposure.



My sister lives in Arizona and she's actually got some scarring on her forehead from sun damage.  She's learned to use sunscreen always.

dat - Posted - 05/27/2016:  10:01:38


my bride is pretty good about reminding me to use it,  same with bug spray, she'll always say    " you didn't use any sunscreen did you"  or "you should have sprayed with off"  she reminds me after I needed it 

OM45GE - Posted - 05/27/2016:  10:39:57


My wife is the opposite. I remind her and she says she just wants to get a little sun first. At the end of the day she's crying as she reaches for the aloe vera.

DeanT - Posted - 05/27/2016:  10:41:21


I'm pretty much tan year round, with running, Kansas is mild enough to keep it up. I routinely spend 2-4 hours in the sun every day, and can't even tell. I was very fair skinned as a kid. But not so much anymore

dat - Posted - 05/27/2016:  12:45:56


The kansas winters can be bad from what you say, but not near as bad as farther north 

OM45GE - Posted - 05/27/2016:  14:47:14


I'm out year round too, but the weather is certainly a challenge when it's 0 degrees with a strong wind.

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/27/2016:  14:50:10


It's been cool and rainy here lately on my days off - not a lot of chance to stay outdoors

OM45GE - Posted - 05/27/2016:  14:54:06


We've had a stretch of lovely weather with temps in the 80's and 90's and clear blue skies. In fact, I think I'll make a Gin and Tonic and head out to the Adirondack Chair now.

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/27/2016:  15:29:39


You must mean the Muskoka chair..... ; )

DeanT - Posted - 05/27/2016:  16:02:48


tornadoes and flooding is what this spring has been all about in Kansas

dmiller - Posted - 05/27/2016:  22:12:47


 I never had much more of a tan than the "T-shirt/ Farmer's tan". All my jobs back when I was a young'un were outside grunt work jobs, wearing T-shirt and jeans.  Whenever I went out swimming with the family, my two sisters (10 or so years younger than I) always called me "Sheet Man".



I got lucky with the weather here yesterday.  I needed to get my lawn mowed and planned on getting it done right after getting off work when I got off at 7 PM because it's been dry for the past 3 days.  A co-worker at the group home there wanted to know if I could fill in for him until 10 PM, because he needed to leave early.  I told him if he could wait to leave at 7 PM (while I went home to do the lawn at 5 PM), I'd come back and stay until 10 PM for him.  He agreed/ I got my lawn done and filled the rest of his shift for him/ and then it rained buckets today drenching everything once again.  Not much happening outside today, but the grass got cut between the raindrops.  smiley

DeanT - Posted - 05/28/2016:  06:29:02


And of course the rain makes the grass grow faster...

OM45GE - Posted - 05/28/2016:  08:21:59


I had to plant some grass to fill in where we had a tree removed last fall. I have to water the new grass, but I always feel a bit foolish watering something to make it grow so I can cut it. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/28/2016:  17:20:15


I don't water, and mow anything that grows. I love thick clover, it always looks good after a mow. It's also fun mowing dandelions, especially when all the seeds blow in the neighbor's yard.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/30/2016:  02:57:11


LOL

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/30/2016:  12:48:22


We had a neighbo(u)r once who would peer over his hedge into our yard and scowl at the dandelions we hadn't cut yet

DeanT - Posted - 05/30/2016:  17:09:15


my neighbor does that... that's why I like to mow them when there is a north wind

OM45GE - Posted - 05/31/2016:  03:32:31


The neighbor behind me is a nice guy but incredibly fussy about his yard. There usually isn't a single leaf on his lawn and he would like me to cut down the oak trees in my yard. That's not going to happen. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/31/2016:  06:18:04


He probably doesn't have anything else to do, like banjo playing or marathon training....

dat - Posted - 05/31/2016:  10:35:18


the less time you spend in the yard, the more time you can do something else,   but we do spend a lot of time in the yard, we just try not to spend a lot of mowing time, since I gut the 60 inch mower that mows like a race car I cut my mowing time down to about an hour and fifteen min or so, then about 30 min weed eating if I just hit the high spots, used to be an all day thing
