HaHa -- Went to The Local Brewhouse (less than a mile from home) for dinner this evening. Sat at the bar. I was identified as "Table - COWBOY" wearing my boots, 501's, western shirt, and cowboy hat.

OH, I had a pint of amber ale, Philly steak, & fries.

Didn't do much during Christmas Day.  Mostly played n the computer.  Dressed up for dinner (cowboy shirt, belt, Levis), hiking boots)   Weather had been threatening, but most of the day was beautiful, just a little cool.

Relaxing and enjoyable Christmas dinner with cousin Don and friends Paul, Margie, and Jay.  Paul & Margie have the rental property where I spend the month last Winter and friends with Dom.

Christmas Eve Visitors

Christmas Eve afternoon, I was working in the house (OK, I was playing on the computer) when the door bell rang.  Looking out the hall window, the over-the-street couple were at the door.  I was dressed in a t-shirt, new camo kilt, and socks.  No time to change clothes, so I entered them dressed in the kilt.

No comment made about my dress by any of us. Showed them the house.  They were dressed in their GB Packers gear (cheeseheads are everywhere).  I don’t feel so conscious wearing the kilt.
