tee shirt chronicles – parts 1 & 2


It’s no secret but a lot of folks don’t know that my favorite article of clothing is a tee shirt.  I have lots of tee shirts.  When I buy tee shirts, I usually get a solid color with no design but with a pocket.  A pocket is perfect for a lens cap or a pack of Marlboros, should I decide to start smoking.   But I have a lot of other shirts with words and pictures that have been given to me on one occasion or another. 


Some folks would think that they can tell a lot about me by looking at these shirts, but they’d be wrong (mostly).  For instance:

. I never attended the Eastman School of Music (even though I have 4 shirts)

. I’ve never been to Chapel Hill, NC,

. I’ve never been to Guatemala.

. I never attended the University of Maryland

. I’ve never worked for NASA

. I’ve never been to La Jolla

. I have lived in Minnesota (Yah, you betcha)

. I have been to Arizona

. I never played for the NY Yankees

. I don’t eat SPAM


If I was forced to pick a favorite, it definitely would be the NASA shirt.  No question. 

I’d like to also point out that I have 14 other tee shirts in various colors without and words or pictures.  Some even have pockets.  They’re kind of boring to look at so I did not include them in this photo essay.
