I know that I am getting ready to set myself up for much ridicule from those that I know. Having a mostly sound mind, the photos I am providing below are of my own volition, without coercion or under threat of blackmail, and a subject matter I’m fairly certain you will not find all that interesting.

This is why I love to blog: you are allowed unlimited freedom in exercising words like NEVERTHELESS or THUS or FURTHERMORE whereas in real life - there I go again: WHEREAS – in real life you’re not going to find yourself with many friends speaking like a seventy year old English professor who religiously attends every Shakespearean festival or poetry reading that makes its way to town.)

Ankle Muffs. (Get it? Ear muffs, ankle muffs? Never mind.)
