    1. That was what I wore all summer long when I was little; now that I'm old, I'm rediscovering how comfortable flannel is...

    1. I know...they sometimes look like helmets with feet (know what I mean?). When I think of all the safety features we didn't have, our survival surprises me, too!

  8. Great shot. I have a few similar ones of our kids posing for their season photos. Never played myself though.

    1. Lousy spitter, actually! But I wore that baseball cap from the moment I opened my eyes 'til the moment I closed them at night; drove my mother wild!
