Thanks for the shades, Oakley!

I am sick at home today but a box just arrived at my front door that cheered me up. The good folks at Oakley sent over three pairs of their new Frogskins (including the four-leg one), plus the Robert Pimple (aka Barry Mcgee) Hijinx frame, and the Will Barras Montefrios! Thank you very much!
