cheeky opticians??

Posted in Uncategorized by ruthanzo on April 20, 2010

Lily and I were driving back from the New York City area where we bought a point and shoot camera. We were listening to Public Radio and it so happened I had had my eyes checked the week before so I was thrilled to hear there were cheeky opticians in Albany.

When the kids were small we stayed at a really downmarket Holiday Inn near the bus station in Albany. The night clerk had long scary brown and gold painted finger-nails that looked like twisted dove beaks when they grow too long and can’t sharpen them. The kids were fascinated by her.

This next one is the first version.

    Have no idea why I’m strolling through this blog except that I just heard the swimming song on the radio and felt the need to connect somehow. Seeing the lab in a swimming cap and then the walking stick video/story with Kate did it for me so thank you.

    Anyway, being a resident of Albany I can clarify that it’s “Sheehy” Opticians. I go to a competitor so can’t speak to their cheekiness but they do support public radio so can’t be all bad. That puts them above most of our politicians who surely are cheeky.
