Thurston Howell, III. The occasion? The Free Times Best of Columbia party. The instigators? Those charming lasses of Flock and Rally.

While many who attend this festival find the locally grown tomatoes to be inspired, I am always rather charmed by the attire. In a crowd of delightful outfits, this young woman and her hat stood out.

I hadn't given much thought to how the World Cup might be influencing work wear until I saw this photo on Facebook yesterday. Then, a pretty young lady invited me join her merry band at The Publick House to watch the U.S. challenge Germany. I decided to pay more careful attention to how fans were attired. Here's a little of what I saw. The group, above, is utterly charming, no? The fellow in the blazer is wearing a soccer jersey underneath.
I was fascinated by the handsome chap in the center of this group, for he was wearing both a work-worthy shirt and tie AND a sort of I-believe-I-shall-mow-the-lawn red bandana.

Bruno Mars being spotted on Columbia's Main Street today reminded me that I'd taken this photo of an attractive young fellow. Not sure which I admire most....the sneakers, the lime green pants, or the trilby atop his noggin.

This photo in today's Los Angeles Times inspired me to post, for if the U.S. Senate can manage to agree to bring back Seersucker Day, surely it's time for me to resurrect my will to blog.
I've written about this day before....which in its infinite wisdom, the Senate decided to squash a couple of years ago....lest it make them seem unproductive. Indeed. One assumes that they have finally realized that puckered fabric is not the problem.
I found a fun, visual history of seersucker, here, on the Haspel website. Have a mint julep and enjoy!
And, lest you think that I've ignored my work in order to behave like a member of Congress--watching the telly, eating bonbons and starting pointless debates--let me assure you: My hiatus was owing to a research trip to Peru to study Andean hats. More on that soon!
Oh, and by the way, the gentleman standing second from right is the incomparable Senate Chaplain Barry Black. He is a marvelous orator I've had the privilege to work alongside. If you ever have the opportunity to hear him speak, do take it.
