I have new glasses.
They are blue.
They are a little old fashioned, or as I like to say, retro.
It isn't the most flattering pic but will do for one taken by my phone under a fluorescent light :)
Tomorrow I drive the next 560 km to Sydney. I left a little late today but for once it was not a case of "just one more thing." Nope this time was me checking the tyres and noticing one of the nasty cheap things put on by a previous mechanic seemed to have a ripple in the side wall.
Convenient that not 20m away was a tyre place, eh? And they were not busy and came and looked immediately.
Sidewall was delaminating, or in more simple terms, the layers were coming apart. (He used little words.)
I am so glad that
A) I checked the tyres, and
B) We have the spare cash to cough up $160 for two new tyres on the spot
Otherwise I might have had a blowout on the way.
I'm also glad that they were not terribly busy and had a suitable size tyre or two in stock for my ancient little car.
Ancient little car has not sloped a beat so far :) If he does, that is why I pay for roadside assistance.
That was a very long way to say I like my new glasses :)
