So, we’re down in California for the birth of our latest grandchild. While our daughter and grandchild were still in the hospital, our son-in-law asked us to go to the grocery store a pick up a few things. We were happy to help
It’s very hot down here by our standards. Barbara has these things that if you get them wet with cold water and tie them around your neck, they’re supposed to keep you cool. She put the one in the picture on and we went into the store.
At the checkout stand, the clerk asked her which gang she was with. She, of course, didn’t know what he was talking about. He said that in this area, you have to be careful what color you are wearing. He said that this color, especially in a scarf-type of article, could get you shot.
Well, even though it’s a fairly serious thing, it’s somehow amusing to me. Needless to say, she’s not going to be wearing that thing anymore. I’m glad. I don’t think it does a thing for her looks. 😎
