This is how John’s socks look nearly every day:
Sometimes the socks are blue and brown, sometimes white and black, but rarely do they match. Evidently this is the trend in middle school right now. I’m not complaining, because it means I don’t have to match socks. That’s right, I don’t match socks. There’s a pile for each person, but no pairs are matched. This is what my dogs wear:
These are brown leather hand-rolled collars with personalized engraved brass plates from Quillin Leather and Tack in Paris. Paris, Kentucky, that is. This is the same oiled leather that is used for horse bridles and halters for famous thoroughbreds, but my dogs just wear theirs to lounge around the house, or perhaps for a casual stroll around the neighborhood. And guess what? They match! My dad suggested Quillen, and I’m glad he did. They do beautiful work, and I highly recommend them if you want beautiful collars for your pooches.
