    I Have Joined The Ranks

    Next Friday, my wife and I celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary.

    Last Friday, she received her anniversary present from me -- LASIK on both eyes to correct her vision. Yesterday I received my present from her -- GPO and JABB.

    Even though GPO and JABB are a tiny fraction the cost of LASIK, I feel like I got the better gift.

    Now if only she could bestow upon me some compositional skills ...
    Best Regards,
    Ernie

    Ernie:

    Welcome to the Garritan Forum. You just proved that it's
    not the cost of the gift, but the delight one reflects on
    receiving something that is valuable to them personally.

    We are eagerly awaiting your first creative efforts with
    GPO and JABB.

    Lunker,

    Congrats on your anniversary. If you can last 12 years, you can last 50! Unless the LASIK opened her eyes and now she can see what you really look like (she probably now realizes the stud muffin she married )

    Perhaps you will be inspired to write love songs for your wife with your new gifts. Your wifes smart, she gets two gifts.

    All my best,

    Gary

    With the new samples at your fingertips, it is only a matter of time before those personal talents will shine through.

    Congratulations and welcome.

    Sounds like a mismatch here - she gets better eyes and buys you tools for making music. Paintbrushes and paint would have made sense. Or a hearing aid?

A good compromise would be to get those multifocal contact lenses. I use them, and thought they are not perfect, I do find myself reaching for reading glasses a lot less.

    The big benefit to contact lenses is not having to buy expensive sunglasses, easier use of cameras, and my eyes seem to degenerate at a much slower rate.
