Pat Shingleton's Weather News: "Pants on the Ground?"

10 months ago Tuesday, May 27, 2014 3:47:56 PM CDT May 27, 2014 Tuesday, May 27 2014 May 27, 2014 in Pat Shingleton Column

Baker City Council placed "saggy" pants on the agenda, reminding me of a story. We always enjoyed visits to Uncle Sam Biggins' farm. He was the picture of hard work, always displaying a load of tobacco in his cheek; walking bowlegged to his barn to climb a tractor or bridle a horse. My visits with young lads remind me of Sam, inquiring if "position" britches made them a tad cooler. A few noted that wearing saggy pants, south of the waist, provided some cooling. With a hand on his belt, I questioned one fellow as to the difficulty in strolling "bowlegged" in the heat of the day? He said he maneuvered a little slower as I assumed less energy exertion caused the cool down. I shared Larry Platt's "Pants on the Ground" with him, he liked it.
