Good 49º clear sunny morning.
Yesterday we topped at 94º.
Picture of the Day ... due to the chair leg and this guy's posture, it looks like he's wearing high heels!
Interesting about spats.....
Spats, a shortening of spatterdashes, or spatter guards are a type of classic footwear accessory for outdoor wear, covering the instep and the ankle. They were worn by men and, less commonly, by women in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Made of white cloth, grey or brown felt material, spats buttoned around the ankle. Their intended practical purpose was to protect shoes and socks from mud or rain, but also served as a feature of stylish dress in accordance with the fashions of the period.
