Mahalo! Line of the day:

"Joe entering the Circle with the famous Lightning Bolt Roofs to the left. James Lucas tried to erase them earlier in the season but his jack-hammer broke!"

Way to give Chris Mc a ticket, you fashion policeman you.

Am I right to assume that khaki colored pants just blend in or is that at least better than black?

Or maybe this. But I think it would rip apart on the first pitch

Actually if all else fails ... the old white painter pants would be great! Just not black of dark brown for spring... now in the fall the fashion sensitive could be sporting something in the darker range because of the low sun angle. Then those pants are ok... BUT take note... Black is never a good color for ones top! Fun having you on the stone again Chris!!
