Picking Up Butch

Today (well technically this weekend), I am guest blogging over at police officer Momma Fargo's place.

Initial feedback from the post is that I am making people cry.

Making people cry? 

I have not been accused of that since the incident that led to the Mrs. revoking my permissions to choose my own wardrobe color combinations: After a particularly bad shirt and short selection, a teary-eyed Mrs. declared something about me being "fashion clueless."

Well anyway, you are welcome to jump over to Momma Fargo's blog here and read my guest post on the topic of youth motivation

I call it Picking Up Butch; after an inspirational tradition at one college in Vermont.

Hope to see you there, and not crying, of course.

Venturing over right now. A lack of fashion sense could be a sad thing...sorry to hear it made the wifey tear up :( lol

hahaha haven't made anyone cry over my fashion sense, I guess I'm not as bad as I thought. Will have a look.

Thanks so much, Slam! An inspiring story and a good lesson to us all that positive things can motivate our youth and us as adults by having role models like those college students! It's paying forward with others already!

Again, thanks so much for your brilliance!

PS> Glad the Mrs. got your fashion going on in the right direction. LOL.

Slamdunk:
ROFL...wardrobe color combos...!
Brilliant.
(sounds a bit like my mom who used to say "you get a BANJO with that outfit?")

Well, I was young and learning that plaids stripes and solids don't ALL GO TOGETHER...AT THE SAME TIME!

(and I have learned that lesson well and never done such things in DECADES)

Thanks, Mom.

Good post.
Stay safe.
