I need something to pep up my life and I haven’t had much to do lately what with near retirement and the pandemic crimping my forays into the world of people. So, I have resolved to become a runway model. This goal might be seem farfetched. “Paul,” people will say, “runway models are women, young, super thin, and take heroin to stay super thin. You’re an overweight man, on Social Security, and your only drug is regular soda, which, if anything, adds to your weight.”
A bit harsh, but true. However, I would retort, “There are millions upon millions of overweight, retired men who wear clothes. Have you ever seen masses of feral, overweight masses of older, nude men in public?”
No, they have not. I shall give these sartorially forgotten men a voice. I will be their clothing icon. Keep tuned to my quest.

Dear readers, I would cheer me up to hear from you. Where are you from? What do you like to do? What’s your favorite local food? What would you like me to blog about? Thanks.
