    As an older woman, who must wear glasses to “see,” I have been stumped as to what to do about an immediate “mardi gras” party… not in February but day after tomorrow!!! Can’t find any masks anywhere, but then, how to wear them with one’s glasses! So I found this page… as the perfect “compromise.” Thanks, thegoodstuff!
