This week's Fun Monday is hosted by Ami W who presents this assignment: "Find something in your closet you are keeping for some ungodly reason ... take a picture of it and tell us why you are keeping it ..."
I thought of the T-shirt on the right, probably because I had recently noticed it in my closet. In the days when Cuppa was passionate about painting watercolors, she had the idea of printing up T-shirts. I suspect that we, the family, were each to wear one should she have an Open House at some point. She never did as injuries forced an early retirement from this pursuit.
It was never worn, not only because of her early retirement but because it simply didn't turn out very well as the home done printing job was always very dull and faded, even more so than it looks to be in this photo. Ten years or so later, this never-worn shirt remains in my closet. For some strange reason, it even came across province with us eighteen months ago, and after dragging it out for this photo, I will put it back so that I can scratch my head over it in another three years or whatever.
I was surprised, however, to find this other forgotten T-shirt with it celebrating Wayne Gretzy's retirement. Made at the behest of the newspaper in his hometown where his parents still live or did at the time, a friend from the same town gave it to me. I seem to recall wearing it as a pyjama top from time to time but not lately. I'll also put it back where I found it, and I still don't quite know why.
I presume you'll find the list of Fun Monday participants at A Family Story. I think I'm the token male in the crowd although I was originally introduced to the group by Eric at The Electronic Firefly.
