I was out to take paddle board pictures of my wife and my buddy, Andy. Arriving in typical FloridaHillbilly style (late), I only got there in time to see the boards loaded back up. Ah well. Hanging out turned into an offer to go get some […]

I spoke about Zenni Optical a while back, but had never actually tried them out. Well, last week, I received my first order from them, and I’m impressed enough that I thought I’d share.
