My sister succumbed to my desire and gifted one to me. I was so happy. :-)
Hubba continued to think I was weird for coveting such a simple device. Then our power went out... for a very long time. Not only could I see my way to the barn in the dark, but I see my way around the house without carrying a flashlight. So we went to the store and got Hubba a headlamp too.
With the extended darkness of late fall, we could not get everything done without the magic of Headlamps.
Headlamps definitely work!
