LOL! Knowing Mom, she wants the matching acetylene torch and visor. She learned welding three years ago, for the heck of it.

I would have loved a pair of them during my working days. I would have caught all the eyes walking through the financial center in downtown Boston during a Spring downpour.

The last thing that made me smile was on Wednesday when I was at Winthrop. One of the patients who is in early Alzheimer, kept calling everyone girlfriend. She told me that she knew their names, but couldn't remember them. I just wanted to tell her that it was all right, we all understood. Instead I told her my name was Girlfriend. She laughed so hard. I brought a moment of joy to just one person that really needed it.

Those are wonderful!

I have friend who would probably adore them. It's her 75th birthday this year, so I sent her a pic of them asked if she would like to have a pair as a birthday present.

Did you get them at Victorian Trading?
