It's all about me.

With a distinct lack of anything to post, this is best I could come up with.






Me basked in a sunset glow sporting my $10.00 Longs Drugstore (I forgot my $200.00 Maui Jim) sunglasses! Wotdafuk .....it bugs the crap out of me that the market can bare such grotesque over pricing and even worse, that I buy into it!

Value, it’s a strange and wondrous variable that ebbs and flows with what ever is important to me in the moment. Normally I wouldn’t be seen dead wearing such cheapies, but going to the beach without shades was not an option. So what price was I willing to pay to allow my eyes to rest for the afternoon behind a pair of non polarized specs? Well it turns out I’m quite a cheap bastard because the threshhold showed up quickly at $15.99 and then I found these at $9.99, score!

I'd like to bet that only your bank balance knows the difference between your Longs and Maui Jims.
No one else is interested - a new motto for you: Save your brass send it to your Mum:-)

Ok, so they're expensive. But they're the best! I love my Maui Jim's and I think my eyes are all the better for me having a pair. Sometimes they're cheaper online, try eyesavers.com

You look like a bug in those cheapies...a cute bug...but non the less.... a bug.

Mater: Good idea, when ever I get cheap on myself I’ll think of you!

Ely: True, MJ’s are no ka oi, I love mine too and the Lahaina store has replaced many a part for free while I wait, you can’t beat that for customer service. I like my friend Ed’s decree; ‘never get cheap on your glasses, shoes or your bed’!

Not a nice comment Sharon - little miss smarty pants - remember you're still not too big to have your bottom spanked.

Nice picture of you by the way. I wouldn't mind a copy.

Hey Mater,

Why don't you just download the photo yourself, enlarge it and stick it on the ceiling above your bed like everyone else!

Nice try Ely but I have Windows 98 and am unable to do all these wondrous tricks (plus my printer died on me).

BUT, I would like to see comparable pictures of Maui Jim and Long's glasses together - what do you get for $190 difference?

Ely:.....and I thought that poster above my bed was our little secret!

Mater: You get polarized lenses and extreme lightweight comfort, so you can wear them all day, get sweaty and forget you have them on. Thats worth $190 right there!

Thanks, Sharon. I needed that!
