Year of the Turtle
It's not often I accept sartorial advice from our dogs, but Charlie has declared this to be the fall/winter of the turtleneck. I'd prefer a non-winter, such as we had last year, but the odds are long on its rehappening so soon, so I clicked on the computer and went shopping.
My closet is full, my seasonal needs are zero, I would like 3 turtlenecks. For Christmas several years ago #1 son gave me a black pima cotton Ralph turtleneck, which I adore. I became hooked on Ralph's turtles, accepting few substitutes. This season I'm searching for just the right green and waiting for a dark gray to arrive. I'd be a more confident shopper if I believed the colors on my monitor.
Last winter I faux pawed as we say around here. Unwilling to suffer for my art I purchased a creme, cotton Orvis submariner sweater. I knew better, I simply did not do better. I should have then, and have now acquired the wool RAF/Submariner sweater from What Price Glory. The Orvis is good, this is better.
Shopping 'till Spring is over.
Mississippians around the world have a holiday today in honor of Wm. Faulkner's birthday. He'd appreciate you sharing a bit of whiskey with friends on his special day.
