The stage of life called Life Behind Spectacle Lenses.
We can't see diddly squat without them.
I haven't been able to see linen for quite a while now to cross stitch. Then again ... I really haven't had any time to do that anyway.
I can still read a book without them ... and my arms are still long enough.
I do have one concern about this aging thing.
It has to do with the inventor of the i-phone.
How on earth are you suppose to see the screen?
Scratch that. You just buy a cheap pair of glasses from Target. :)
