I'm off to the opera! Or am I off to the races? Actually, I'm just off to help my son with his homework, but I'm doing it in style with these nifty Jsolan Telekular binocular glasses made in West Germany in 1956. They're surprisingly heavy duty, and in really great shape after all these years as well. The box has unfortunately seen better days, but the lovely illustrations, along with the black and yellow-gold design on all sides still makes for a stunning package. They work pretty swell too, and are definitely magnifying stuff! I'll never understand how these found their way into a hillbilly flea market in mid MO, (and for only $5 too), but who's complaining! Okay, I had a whole "They Live" scenario thing worked out for this post too, but the kiddo is calling me... maybe these glasses will make me look like I know what I'm talking about when it comes to new math and mechanical drawing.
