A Mixed Bag

Today a grandson turns 29, a great grandson turns 23, and I am getting crazy old. Maybe it's because the days fly by sometimes and they don't always. It's never hard to find something to do, though. Today while on the internet I spotted an ad on a local rummage page for five men's flannel shirts in the Mister's size at $5.00 each. New, cotton, made in USA and vintage. For many years now we have looked for the ones that have button down pockets and NO button down collars. Nada!  The rules of the community site are clear and simple. So I made contact with the seller and we met her halfway from our place and halfway from hers. It was a good meet and we are very pleased with the results. They will go with me to the laundromat tomorrow. When I returned home I researched the labels and brands and sure enough they were made in the 60's and 70's. Good stuff then. E-bay sellers have them for sale too but they are costlier and many are acrylic. See the images that were displayed and caught my attention. Good buy! and...the plaids match up in front very well. Hard to find that detail in today's market unless you want to pay $30-$40 each!
Then I finished both of my computer creations and did a happy dance!
