One Big Coat

Friday, I snowblowed the sidewalks and alley pad. I was wearing my good Columbia jacket and afterwards, I smelt like a 2-cylinder engine. So, I threw it in the wash, but I still needed a coat while mine was being washed.

I went to the back closet and found my "old" coat, which is really in awesome shape. The only reason I bought a new coat is because this old coat is an XXL. I now wear a size L and most of my size large shirts even look somewhat baggy.

It was a great reminder of how far I have actually come. I do remember when I used to wear this "old" coat and it fit tightly.

I will be keeping my old coat out, but only for the times I need to blow the snow. Hoping I'll need a new coat again in a few years and it only be because my new one is worn out.

Great weigh in this week!

Good for you, TB! And I'm sure all that work taking care of snow accumulation is some good activity.

You have come a long way indeed.
