I had thought that I would do an entire radio show on t-shirts... and I still might. Have you ever considered how they began? Here are some details that you may be unaware of and since I am an avid trivia fan, I will be happy to share them with you.
They began as underwear issued by the Navy sometime between the Spanish-American war in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. They were to be worn under the sometimes scratchy military uniforms but in the warm climates the uniforms were often abandoned and the shirt was then their outerwear. This continued because it was an easy fit, it was easily cleaned, and it was inexpensive.
Yes, I have noted the time and I am going to see how long it takes me for this week’s blog. I can usually contemplate for a while but the actual time to get it down is about a thirty minutes. I had surgery on my left hand but since I am right handed I did not stop and consider the number of things I do primarily with my left hand. Nor did I think about those things that take two hands to do - - like dressing. Hence I have joined the classy group of folks sporting pajama pants in public.
I am writing this the first weekend of November. I am not sure when it will be posted. This morning my heart is just so very thankful for all of my life that I feel like it is going to burst open. It was not always so. As I continued to reflect, I was going to simply make a Facebook post then realized that what I had to say was not going to be simple, nor was it going to be short.
