Turtle Necks and Sweaters Up, Boxer Shorts and Tank Tops Down
I recently replaced all my summer shorts or should I
say added to them. I first went to
and was delighted to see their boxer shorts on sale for
$2.99. Now, mind you, they were all Christmas boxer shorts.
But I didn’t really care, because they had the size
I wanted. And how can you beat that price?
the boxers came, I realized that I ordered them too big,
so Herman and I went back on the computer to re-order
them in the proper size. They actually had some non-Christmas
ones on sale for $6 which I also got.
my on-line shopping spree, Terry took me down to Peeble’s
Department Store in Johnstown, where I found some boxers
by Tommy Hilfiger. Though they are $8.95 a pair, I got
myself two pair and Herman two pair.
yet brought all my shorts downstairs from winter storage.
But as the warmer temperatures approach us, I’ll
be doing just that. Up go the turtle necks and sweaters
and down come the tank tops, shorts and swimwear.
and Herman both have a pair of flannel lined jeans. I
bought Herman his at Beacon Wholesale in Gloversville.
Terry picked hers up at Aldi’s grocery store in
Johnstown where they were on sale. Herman’s weren’t

jeans as I’m so sensitive to heat.

third week in April) and gotten to try out my shorts and
boxers on the warm days as well as tank tops.
is turning into quite the beach person. She tells she
puts on sun block every morning before she gets here.
Then I’m next. I’ve gotten used to her badgering
me about putting SPF 30 on my face. Terry doesn’t
change into bathing suits until it gets really hot. I’m
in shorts much earlier than she is too. But even I don’t
put a bathing suit on until the weather is warm enough.
other big news: Herman put his sailboat in the water the
weekend of the 16th of April. That’s the earliest
he’s ever done it, but if you’ll remember
it was really nice and warm the first two weeks of April.
Let’s hope the rest of the summer holds up as well.
