Here's the link you provided me, these are them, correct?

I got the 13/16ths for the main buttons. There's only one size for the sleeves, obvs.

It's true. I wish I had gotten the 2-inch rhinestone-encrusted buttons. Those would have really made a statement.

What's the temperature out there? I almost wore my tweed jacket today but it's going to be in the high 70s today so I thought it might be a bit warm. I just went with an OCBD and chinos.

Nice. We're supposed to see some rain in a few days. Then hopefully it will cool off for the rest of the year.

A friend from church hit me up on Facebook to see if he could borrow a bow tie for a Halloween party he's going to tomorrow.

Apparently my wardrobe is now the go-to source for ridiculous Halloween costumes. Excellent.

Just send this picture to him as your response. He'll get the hint.

Eh, it doesn't bother me. I told him to stop by and pick what he wants.

Could be.

Actually he's going to a work party (at Intel) and he's dressing up as someone he works with. I guess the guy wears bow ties sometimes.

So that makes...two of us in the Folsom/EDH area, I guess.

I've decided that this year for Halloween I'm going to hand out restaurant-style two-packs of saltine crackers. Does anyone know where I can get them in bulk?

I can hardly wait to see the looks of disappointment on the little freeloaders' faces when they see what we've got for them.

I'm going to wear something similar! Except I'll probably wear a blue OCBD and a bow tie.

There's a couple of guys who wear bow ties in our office, but with being the youngest guy in here I think I would draw a lot of jabs for doing so.....someday, though, lol.
