New Glasses

I bought my first pair of glasses the other day from I don't wear glasses. I don't like how you can see out the sides and top and bottom. I much prefer contacts....having worn them for years. BUT sometimes I just don't have time to throw my contacts in and wanted a pair of glasses for those such occasions. 

A friend claimed an offer one day on FB, so I thought I'd check it out. Pretty cool deal they had. I paid $35 for these glasses, shipping and all and they would have been about $140 without the coupon code. They also came with a glass case, cleaning cloth, cleaning solution and a screwdriver (that tickles me, but I don't know if that's the "norm" when buying glasses).

I'm really liking them. They're black and purple and I think look really good. I'm horrible when it comes to buying sunglasses that "fit" my face right and was a little concerned buying these "sight unseen". They have a virtual fitting room where you can upload your picture and then "try on" the glasses, so that helped a lot.

There was a slight snafu when ordering tho, they're website kept giving me an error message every time I clicked submit. The next day, John tells me that the bank is showing "pending" 6 different times! Whoa! I wasn't sure if I'd LIKE these glasses, let alone 6 pairs of them! Luckily, the customer service was easy and they explained what happened (basically, their end was having problems, but not the banking info......the bank was telling them the money was there for approval, but they don't actually claim the money until the item is shipped. The other 5 approvals would just sit there for a few days and without being claimed, would "disappear"). 

I ordered them on Sunday evening and by Tues, they were here!! Talk about quick service! They'd upgraded me to FedEx express delivery and I'm thinking it was because of the snafu. 

I'll DEFINITELY be ordering from the again in the future!

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…
