Last night — clear, cold. Flannel pajamas and I shut the window I usually leave cracked. This morning — clear and sunny, 50s. Hmm. Had to roll out early to interview an 8th grader. I don't remember school starting at such a ghastly hour, but that's probably just old age kicking in. Then off to get an oil change. So — classic LL Bean Norwegian over a Bean flannel shirt, and lined LL Bean jeans. SmartWool socks and LL Bean boat shoes. (Hmm II — lots of Leon in there.) This is on Long Pond Road in Salisbury, Conn., looking toward Sharon. Mudge Pond in distance. Very trouty-looking stream in that valley, too. Might have to go bushwacking later.

After a summer of not giving a damn about clothes or much of anything else I snapped out of it when the weather did. Harder to do "don't give as shit" when it's cold and rainy out. I also did an enormous purge of the closet(s). I'm talking 50 suits and sportcoats, with shirts, chinos, jeans, shoes, ties and odds and ends to go with them. It went to a local church's fall festival sale, to aid a food bank. What was left over went to a thrift shop that helps people pay medical bills. Those worthy outfits get some cash, I get some breathing space, everybody wins.
