Summer Collapsed

I wore jeans for the first time this weekend instead of shorts.....I'm not ready for cold weather and long pants!

A Bit of Trivia
Did you know for passport pictures you can't show teeth when you smile?

  2. Yes, it's getting colder here, too. I look like I'm on a wanted poster on my passport photo, it seems like it has to be so all over the world now. Have a fun day, hugs, Valerie

    It is warming up here, and I am so not ready for the sweaty season.

    1. I don't get the smile thing. What's the rationale?
      And I'm not ready for the cold:) Maybe we should switch spots for awhile:)

  4. Now I need to look my pic over, nope no pearly whites.You don't get them stamped as often.When traveling on the train overseas they just inspect them.Used to be fun and try to fill your passport up.

  9. Turned on the heat for the first time this morning. I'm hoping for more snow this winter, but I will miss kayaking on the lake.

    Interesting about passports, but I don't like to give big toothy smiles at picture time, so I was okay anyway.

  11. I am loving this cooler weather and we still haven't put on our heat. It went down to the single digits last night(Celsius). It feels so refreshing and I am loving it. The last passport photo had to be black and white, no smile and I looked like Big Bertha ready to beat you for a cigarette. I remember when it was colour and you could smile.

    1. Black and white, hey? Interesting. We still have color. I'm sure mine would be just as bad in black and white as it is in color.
      Ha ha, on ready to beat you for a cigarette:)

  12. You made me check my passport photo. I have teeth showing! Must be a new rule.

    I'm into jeans and fleecies now. They feel cozy and welcoming!

    1. Maybe it is a new rule. If I'm remembering correctly the photographer said in the future you won't be able to wear your glasses
      Your clothes sound comfy, Jeanie.

  13. I got to wear jeans, too. Right now, I still have on a jacket, because we let it get really cold last night and this house knows how to hold a chill.

    1. Brrr is right. It's been pretty cool here at night too. I've had to pull out my winter jammies.

  15. Thank God I never show my teeth when I smile. I hate my smile. That means I should get a passport and go to England. Who wants to pay for my trip? I promise no one will ever see my teeth.

    Love,
    Janie
