noted in passing: mysterious appearances.

We were packing to grab a fast few days in Key West, the chill and drear finally got to Himself, and I said I thought I might pick up a light jacket for cool evenings. 'I thought you had a jacket," he said.

Sidling over to stand in front of the open closet, I thought fast. "What jAcket do you mean?"

"You know," he said, "the one you bought."

I wonder if he thinks that sometimes clothes and shoes just appear from nowhere. On balance, that wouldn't be a bad thing.

Well, here we are at the Miami Airport, and the little plane to KW will be boarding soon. I'm wearing a hoodie. I'm not one to push my luck

  1. Haha! Isn't it strange how some males just don't 'get' the need for adornments.
    I hope you have a fab time in Key West. It sounds so unbelievable glam to me, having never been there.

    1. Hi, Ruth! Key West, like so many other places, used to be kind of rough and ready plus artists, writers and those who like hanging around with artists & writers. And now, like so many other places, it's a lot more civilized. But the sky and the sea are still beautiful, the little town is still quirky, and the lovely pink shrimp are right out of the water without ever having been frozen. It's a good place to kick back.

      Ini fairness to Himself, he was just really puzzled.

    1. H, Sulky, well, packing time is "fraught" enough without starting a discussion of clothing with someone who is completely ignorant of the subject.

      And now it is morning and the sun is shining.

  6. I went to Pasadena last year, checked the weather that said it was going to be in the high 70s all week, so I packed appropriately. Which obviously meant that when I got there, it was in the high 40s all week and I froze. But I wasn't going to give the weather the satisfaction, so I went without jacket (or scarf or gloves for the nippy nights) all week. Take that. (Joke's on me?)

    1. Hi, Lisa, I think that in many resort towns the weather reports are controlled by the local Chamber of Commerce. Ive learned that I must always bring a sweater and a tank top, no matter what the forecasts say.

  7. I have just been reading about Key West - a partial biography of Hemingway, focusing on his boat. Key West sounds a stunning place - have a wonderful time (even without that light jacket).

    1. Hi,TEC, the Hemingway House is still a sight to see (once). It has one of the most luxurious bathrooms I've ever seen - it was built in the 1920s, when EH was still married to the first Mrs EH, who came from money.

      Everyyear there's a Hemingway look-alike contest, an invasion of gray-haired guys with beards. There's something for everyone!
