  1. surely not–the outer layer is a jacket?

    Nice touch slipping into fall posts, Kerbey, Has it cooled down for you at all today? We’re in mid-80s and it seems sticky, but can’t even imagine how unbearable it must be where you are. A cool Coke straight from the freezer would be mighty refreshing!


    1. Oh, maybe that’s what it is. Heatstroke prevents understanding. Tee hee. It’s still hot as the dickens, sticky as I type. The Coke is in the freezer; ready in an hour! I changed my mind about that last post and deleted bc it was unable to “get.” This is much happier!


      1. I couldn’t help but think that the old basket of leaves on the lap trick trick is similar to the old popcorn box on the lap trick at the movies. Then I remembered these were days before the hefty Hefty Cinch Sack.


  2. I am pretty sure that outer garment is a fabulous product called “ultrasuede,” a synthetic microfiber fabric invented in 1970 by Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto, which had its moment in the fashion sun and has since slipped into a blessed eclipse along with the Nehru jacket, leisure suit and marshmallow shoes.

    Do not ask how I know this information.

  3. My turn. I don’t get it. He’s wearing a long sleeved Jethro shirt and an apparent “shirt jacket” so it’s probably chilly. Granted he may have worked up a sweat from raking,but why is he drinking an ice cold 16 ounce bottle of sugar laden Coke. And why is his gal apparently comfortable in a single sweater? Gadzooks. I have too much time on my hands.
