Since the first day construction intern Omar arrived, he has been poked fun at because of his glasses. In the beginning, they were taped up and scratched. Then he had to super glue them together. And finally, one of the arms of the glasses broke off, leaving him with 2/3 of what used to be decent glasses.
But last week, the good folks at St. Christopher's - League City took up a collection to get Omar a new eye exam and a good pair of glasses. Omar was so excited not only because he didn't have to hear the jokes and answer the questions, but because he would be able to see!
To top it off, Jim Hammond and Charles Scott of St. Chris took the entire TEDRD staff out sailing on Sunday! Thanks St. Chris!
Jim and Captain Omar in his new glasses!
