I may not have been clear Nonna.  I paid out close to £800 for two pairs. after 'discounts' and the 'Second Pair 1/2 price' offer.


The first pair are 'Jaguar' frames.  I've not worn them for a year or so because I much prefer the second pair I bought. with lighter and better made 'Stepper' frames.

Anyway I put the Jaguars on today and a little bit of decorative trim fell off one arm....


Sorry DJ I don't know how I came up to the precise price of £ 200 , probably not reading post properly.

Anyone read the poem ‘Rugby Chapel’ by Matthew Arnold?   I love so many of his poems but this one came to mind as I was thinking of things concerning eyes.  Anyone know which line in the poem I was thinking of?  
I’ll post the answer later.....

Philistaine that I am all I read was a lot of obscure one line sentences that make no sense and seem to have no relationship with previous or following lines. Quite honestly I thought it a load of nonsense, couldn't get past the third verse...  :(


Sorry Margie...

Sorry Margie, read Brew's post so I thought I'd have a read.  Couldn't make head or tails of it. Don't think I've got enough years left to get through it all, it's soooo long.

So you never found the reference to something that can happen In a person’s eye?


Here are a couple of lines from the poem.....

Thunder crashes from rock

To rock, the cataracts reply,

Lightning’s  dazzle our eyes.


As I sai before, I love this poem and many of the others  he wrote.   It stirs my soul .
