For some strange reason, with the quick reactions I have gotten from this real life event, either some of you ladies had your spouse try and do this, or you men have experienced this too.
Nope. My anniversary is Elk season. Our honeymoon was 10 days of elk hunting. She’s not missed one season with me.

My bad. They are not upside down just too far forward and if you notice they don't cover her eyes at all.

You are right on first post. It is upside down. The pictures explain everything. Now, what to do with that marvelous rose comb is a different story.

After studying both pix carefully I stick by my thinking they are not upside down. The prongs are on the larger section (and they go in the nostrils) and the smaller section goes on top of the comb. If it fits too tight over the comb you might try heating something hot and holding it against that smaller section til it expands/stretches a bit. A small round piece of metal? just need to be careful you don't stretch it too thin that it breaks.
