The continual warm weather is keeping us in shirts and possibly shorts. It was a limited wardrobe for our grandfather, Bert Price. He wore the same clothing everyday, no matter what the weather. His wardrobe consisted of cotton long johns, heavy socks, flannel shirt, a railroad hat, bib overalls or pants with suspenders and work gloves. He kept the sleeves on his long-sleeve shirt in place with elastic garters. This was his uniform when he was a switchman on the railroad and his uniform for his remaining years. During the winter months the only modification was a coat that was called a mackinaw. During the four seasons, I never saw him sweating profusely or shivering and the only wardrobe change was his "Sunday-Go-To-Meeting" suit and tie.
