No More Turtlenecks! (Until October….)

31 March - Turtleneck (and hat!)

31 March – Turtleneck (and hat!)

It must be spring.  Why?  Because Trent is no longer wearing a turtleneck!

Last October I wrote an post called “Turtleneck Trent“.  In it I talked about my turtlenecks.  You see, I wear a turtleneck almost everyday from sometime in October until sometimes in March.  It’s my signature, even more than the hat.  Occasionally I will go without the hat.

On the last day of March I wore a turtleneck.

It was the last time for the year.  About two weeks later I was able to wear a short sleeve shirt outside.

13 April - No Turtleneck

Now doesn’t that look refreshing?  Almost like Spring!

      Yeah, turtleneck and wool sweaters don’t work when it’s 95 and don’t go with shorts, either ;) I guess I won’t be like Steve Jobs who wore a mock (mock!) turtleneck every day.

        I did not know he wore the mock one. and years ago we bought a “dickie” for hy husband’s work friend – the guy was a huge Steelers fan and the Dickie was on clearance – most people wanted Redskins – anyhow, he said how much be loved it because he could throw it on for an instant stealers touch – and it was perfect for him.

          The “mock” turtleneck just means the neck isn’t as long – if you look at mine I have to fold it, if you look at Steve jobs it went half way up his neck and stopped. Had to wear a dickie in Marching band – there’s a picture of my somewhere with my Marching band uniform…

              The mock turtlenecks don’t cover as much and aren’t as warm. Funny, I’ve never been comfortable when I’ve worn them. But then again, I wore classic turtles first, so… yes, the marching band picture was just a couple of weeks ago.

      My throwing arm isn’t that good, I think the thrown turtleneck got lost someplace over Africa;) I do like the open neck, button down short sleeve shirts too and, as ladydawn commented, I’ll be living in one for the next six months until it’s time for the turtlenecks again…

    Look at you, cute as a button ye are. You’re also very good at the phone selfies, we’re horrible at them round here. Is your neck now doing the freedom dance?
