Yes, very cool, but be careful with scarves in a convertible! Just ask Isadora Duncan...

We have similar tastes. They look nearly identical to the Bolle sunglasses I recently bought.

Wish I had the scarf and convertible in this photo, from many years ago! I'm the one in the yellow scarf. Actually the scarf was borrowed from my aunt, for the photo in her convertible Jeepster. I didn't have any sunglasses back then, but I do now.

Nice! Mine are listed on Amazon as "unisex" so I guess you guys can wear that style too. I especially love the lens quality, because I can see so much better now when driving.

Yes, my father (long gone) referred to that photo as the Isadora Duncan photo.

Seems easier to clean than a metal splatter screen. And no rusting.

Thanks! I think I was actually only about 13 and probably very boring to talk to because I hadn't experienced much of life yet. But yeah, I like the look too.

I'm having an interesting issue with Amazon right now. I have a small business and purchase a ton of stuff from Amazon (and other places), which I then resell to my customers. I ordered a dozen of these

Amazon.com: WeMo Switch, Wi-Fi Enabled, Control your Electronics from anywhere, Compatible with Amazon Echo: MP3 Players & Accessories

per my customer's request. Amazon cancelled my order, stating that I had exceeded the limit available to order at the low prime price by using another account. I do have another account, but I don't use it and I didn't this time. They refuse to tell me the other account that they have somehow decided is mine, and just keep repeating that I broke the rules. It's turned into a "no I didn't" "yes you did" thing now. They absolutely refuse to tell me what this other account that is supposed to be mine is. Very weird. I would like to find out just to make sure nobody is using my name to make purchases, but they won't tell me. I don't think there's any way this can turn into identity theft or anything, but it sure would be nice to find out what they're talking about.

Update... received the suitcase today. Haven't had the chance to explore all the features, but the material is nice and looks durable (knock on wood). I got the dark blue color and the color is dark blue. More like navy blue than the brighter blue color. I kinda like brighter but then, to not stand out too much at luggage pick up might be a good thing.

That's really cool. I use my standard scale, measure my weight, then pick up the suitcase and take the difference. I have to admit your device is easier!

BTW, love my scale. It is a classic "Detecto" brand weight scale. There is no substitute. Springs won't do. Guess what? Scale was ordered from Amazon, but was sourced directly from Detecto.

We have one too. It sure solves a lot of problems.
The last thing I ordered was a total indulgence: 3 pounds of pine nuts. I will give DW a pound for cooking
