in my Favorite Month, Finally!
mean, it’s not officially summer anymore, but as I’ve
said before, I love this month. It’s my unofficial start
to the New Year. I have to completely adjust my wardrobe from
bathing suits to regular clothes. No, I take that back. That
doesn’t happen until October.
you believe the mount of rain we’ve had this summer?
It’s amazing that I’m still suntanned. I make
the most of every sunny day with my face pointed towards the
a lot of my readers, there is no big change in wardrobe due
to all the rain we’ve had. And I’m assuming most
of you guys work regular jobs where a bathing suit would not
be appropriate attire.
sitting here writing this to you with a tank top and my favorite
shorts which are Rocky and Bullwinkle boxers. I’ve had
these shorts since California, ten years ago. They must not
have been my favorite shorts back then because they’re
in really good shape still. And I don’t suppose THAT
would be proper work attire for most jobs either.
either get different jobs or don’t take my wardrobe
tips. Now, come winter, I will actually be wearing long pants.
Which takes me a long time to get used to. My tanks are replaced
by turtlenecks. (As you all know, I have dozens of those.)
kind of get on a kick about clothing. When I like something,
I buy a lot of it. That and I wear it to shreds. Which brings
me to my next topic. One of my favorite sleeping shirts is
from a restaurant in L.A. I used to go to a lot. It’s
called "Reel Inn, Malibu" and it was a really funky
place. I knew the owners pretty well and they got used to
my ordering items that weren’t on the menu. I also knew
the chef, who was very patient with me and would try to accommodate
my dining needs. As I said before, these were good friends.
the time you read this, that shirt may no longer exist. It
has holes everywhere and doesn’t look like it will make
it through the next wash cycle. Though Terry, my aide, is
particularly careful with the shirt, knowing it’s one
of my favorites.
enjoy this wonderful month as it transitions into fall foliage
and pray for some Indian Summer days for me.
