You're 90?!!

What's your secret?

(Please say plenty of wine, please say plenty of wine, please say plenty of wine, please say plenty of wine, please say plenty of wine, please say plenty of wine, please say plenty of wine, please say plenty of wine)

And thank you for the compliment!

One day I discovered sweet Jerepiko and Muskadel wine.  Three days alter, I flew away somewhere which had no Jerepiko or Muskadel.   I suffered withdrawal symptoms.

Upon arrival back home, the craving evaporated because those wines were so easily available at every street-corner shop.  I still drink them in moderation. 

Whenever I like something, it soon goes off the local market.  That happened with 3 liqueurs and a certain shandy.  Also I can't find cowboy jackets nor civilized ponchos.

Oh, Harold, you really make my day.

Is there such a thing as a civilised poncho?

Yes.  My wife spent countless hours making patches for my  poncho from thick heavy wool.  I  cannot recall if she said it was knitted or crochetted.  Its all the same to me,  It measures 1.3 x 1.2 m.  My wife misconceptualized how I wanted it to look so she had to add on the sides later.   She also made an identical heavy blanket.  My offspring moan if I fetch them from school wearing my poncho, or stetsons or camoflage or purple crocs or a combination thereof.

If that is a pic of your poncho, your wife crocheted, not knitted, it.  It is made up of crocheted "granny squares".  BTW, she did a VERY nice job of it.

Thank you.  She moans if I wear it back-the-front or upside-down or inside-out.   But I cannot tell the difference.  She also knots or crochettes clothes or blankets for worshipful babies and toddlers.  Most have cartoon characters which toddlers will soon recognize.

Only because you do it on purpose.

Frankly, I think the ensemble sounds sensational... but I have been known for odd fashion choices.

If I am not concerned about manufactured "world-opinion", why would I worry about infinitessimal individual sections thereof ?

Are you referring to your own kids?

Yes, kids included, because they are concerned about childish peer opinions.

Alas, I cannot find flares for love nor money.   I detest squashed-up pants with no space to conceal an ankle-holster for my Bill of Rights.
