In February, 1999, D'Wife and I travelled to St. Thomas, USVI, with singularity of purpose: to have a great Caribbean vacation and - God willing - to come back with an extra special souvenir.
Aside from packing the charts, vitamins, herbals and thermometers, I packed something very special.
'If this expedition works,' I said to myself, 'Whatever I bring will be my talisman in the Delivery Room.'
You know how superstitious I am; it had to be just right. It had to be something I could keep by me or on me at almost all times ["one never knows the hour" so to speak]
I was in the habit of wearing a baseball cap in my off hours; that would work - being a fair-skinned individual as it is, I'd need one anyway.
Many options were weighted , but I/we settled on this one:
Well designed, Buffett-ish in the seaplane look, plus local to Jersey.
So ... Who wears it better?
Happy 10th Birthday, our little souvenir.
- yeah, same shirt, too!!!
