I'm adding a proviso- I have a king sized bed. The jeans and shorts look skinnier on it... The clothes I wore when I was younger would fit two in one pair now.
I did my laundry yesterday. I was having a lazy day inside after I got the outside stuff done early, nobody else was needing to do their wash so I got after it.
I had washed my grungies, i.e. my working jeans and shorts. I threw them on the bed to fold or hang and I got to looking at them…
I had to laugh at the progression. I wear clothes a long time. I wear them o.u.t. When my jeans get stained with whatever, they become yard jeans or painting and yard jeans or nasty cleaning job jeans or car washing jeans… You get my drift.
When they get too many worn places in the legs and knees, they becomes working shorts. I cut them off. The older I get the longer the shorts are cut. When you look at the following evolution of clothing, please understand that these clothes are all CLEAN. They have paint on them as well as red dirt stains and a blood stain here and there.
Enjoy the following photos and be very proud of how clean your laundry looks.
These are my most recent cutoffs. These are the only one of the three pairs I’ll wear if I have to run to Lowe’s or Atwood’s or the grocery or whatever. I don’t wear the other two pairs of shorts except around the ponderosa here.
I do try to dress my age…
