When I asked permission to take a photo of the four women on a week’s holiday from Oklahoma, they gladly posed for me, and were delighted when I showed them the photo on my camera.
I’ve noticed in the past month or so that everyone seems to be wearing stripes and checks
I’m happy to report that not everyone’s wearing baseball caps.
Perusing through the April 2011 issue of “SHARP for Men“, a new Canadian Men’s Magazine a recent guest brought with him, I saw an article advising men to mix stripes and checks in their wardrobe. The male model in the article wore a blue striped shirt with a blue checked jacket, plus a bright yellow belt. It looked lovely.
Next day I saw this man at the museum.
I’m sure that’s not what the SHARP fashion editor meant.
Many tourists ask to be photographed with Charles:
I met four-year-old Morgan from New Zealand in the Children’s Store yesterday afternoon. “On my farm, our lambs have black faces,” he told me while we played with the puppets. [The lamb puppet in our store has a white face.]
Morgan told me that one of his dogs was run over so he limps sometimes. “And when he tries to jump over the fence he hits his head on the gate. Hah! Hah! Doesn’t he Dad?
His Dad came over and confirmed that the dog – a sheep dog – had been run over by a car. “We live on a farm with 400 cows and 800 sheep,” he said, “I hope you don’t mind my saying so, but I don’t like the taste of American milk and butter. It’s tasteless. The milk from our grass-fed cows has a much richer flavor.”
I hope to have the pleasure of tasting his milk one day…
When Morgan’s Mom called to tell him it was time to go, he said to me, “Do you want to come to my farm?”
“Thanks, I’d love to see your farm,” I said.
He looked at his Mum and when she nodded ‘yes’ he smiled a happy smile, “And when you come to the farm, you won’t get lost if you remember that our house is the red house at the back.”
“I’ll remember when I’m in New Zealand to go to the red house right at the back of the farm. I look forward to seeing you again Morgan. Perhaps I’ll come for tea one day. ”

PLEASE NOTE: This should have gone in as a comment, but I’m adding it here – after I’ve written the post – simply because I don’t know how to put a photo in the comments…!
I had an email exchange with Jeremy Freed, the editor of SHARP magazine, and he very kindly gave me permission to use the photo spread from his magazine. Thank you sir!
I’m sure you’ll all agree with me that it’s an eye-catching outfit.
