Many of my friends ask me why I do not buy my eyeglasses online since they can not believe how much they cost in Del Rio. Though I have told them that they were equally as expensive in Houston and I always have to return to have them adjusted something not available if I ordered them online.
I got a new prescription recently and I have had to go back twice as they were too tight. Tuesday I had to make another trip as now they were hurting my ears. As I sat there waiting for the eyeglass technician to see me the girl at the front desk called me and handed me my medical file...I asked her if I had to give it to the technician...she replied..."No, our office is closing this Friday". I wanted more details but the phone was ringing off the hook so I just figured I would ask the technician as he has known us for a long time.
When my turn came the technician mentioned that the employees were all in shock as the optometrist had only told them the week before that he had sold the building and everything in it, was retiring, and leaving town!
He was referring all his patients to another optometrist one that I have mentioned before and referred to as "The Betty Boop hating Optometrist" in a prior post. Neither Mom nor I liked him and it has nothing to do with Betty Boop but rather his bedside manner. I suppose we are going to be looking for a new eye doctor though there are not many to choose from here.
I wanted to go to Walmart to check out Chromebooks as I would like to have my pictures on a stand-alone computer as I am having a lot of problems uploading them to my current one. I am also being harassed by Photobucket to delete pictures to bring them down to a free account level, pay a monthly fee, or delete my account altogether.
While I prefer to buy my salads at HEB I did not feel like making a special trip so bought them here instead. This time I did take a picture of avocado prices for JudithK...:-)
I was having a hard time opening the clear bags at the fruit and vegetable section and apologized to a lady next to me for taking so long...she said..."Honey, I am going to teach you a hack" She proceeded by cutting two wet leaves from her cilantro bundle and it opened the bag with no effort...I thanked her as I always struggle with them 👍
I could not leave the store without treating myself to something yummy...
Gasoline prices have gone down...at Walmart it was $2.779 a gallon for unleaded...
