Friday in Costume

Yesterday was a hoot. I drove down to the coast to mingle and socialize with some friends at their home. The party was the 100th bourbon tasting.

What made the day different is a dressed up for the event. Oh it wasn't all that fancy but more dressed than most people brother these days. My clothes were unnecessary, so it made me suspicious.

I had on pressed khakis, a nice dress shirt, a sweater, and a blue blazer with dress shoes. A very acceptable casual dressy for the south in the fall of the year.

Everywhere I went folks would ask who I was and were was I from? People would go out of their way to talk to me. At the gas station people would strike up a conversation. At the party no one hesitated talking to me. At supper back in Southport I had many folks conversing with me with so many questions.

Today I'll put on my jeans and sweat shirt, be anonymous again, and head back home for the weekend.

It was a fun experiment.

I want more pictures of the food.
My wife and I are talking about taking a vacation to the South (where I've never been) for the sole purpose of the food, a foodcation. Yum,yum,yum,yum,yum

Funny how much clothing can affect how a person is perceived.
