Surreptitiously calling off a meeting of the white beard club, because somebody’s wife wants to be taken out for dinner.

I kept running into this guy, and finally I walked by him to get a better picture of the Ponte Vecchio and I said “Hey, sorry I keep staring at you, I like that scarf.” And he said something like “Oh that’s alright no problem.”  After I got my picture I saw he was walking toward me, so I turned sharp and snapped a picture, and I noticed in the tenth of a second it took my camera to focus he had gone all menswear blog on me.
I still like that scarf.

  1. I like your blog Jake. I'm a friend of your dad's Uncle Don-- and your dad of course-- but haven't seen him in a lot of years... I think the last time was maybe in Reno... I think you were there too... just a baby. Cheers.
