Graces #4 & 5 = Warmth

#4: A very warm coat on a very cold day (thanks Lands' End, for my olive drab "commuter" coat, which fits perfectly, has great pockets, and looks like East German army surplus).

#5: An unasked for ride to the train from a heretofore unknown neighbor (thanks Barbara, for going out of your way after getting stuck behind the school bus I was putting my child on).

Just about all my husband's clothing either IS or looks like army surplus
:D

I love my Lands End squall parka. And since they've changed the design in recent years, I am going to keep it until it is so worn out that my kids start to complain about it!

honest to God, I need to read this to counteract all the crap that is happening outside my door or is it the dog that is taking a crap outside my door?
