Double Trouble

Don't you just love parents who think it's cute to dress their kids alike even though they aren't twins? Believe me, it's anything but attractive when you're sitting on the dock of the bay watching the tide roll away and you have a bat-eared, pig-dog sitting beside you wearing the exact same duds. Not cool, I tell you.

The sailor suits must be a family thing because my late Grammy Knowlton dressed Dad and Uncle Mike in them, too. At least they are twins!

Being the trend-setting clotheshorse that I am, I have to contend with all the wanna-bee fashion bugs trying to copy my wardrobe. Take for instance, this nasty little Frenchman who purposely positioned himself beside me on the beach sporting the exact same OBK-9 scarf and replica pair of Tommy Holedigger swimming trunks. What's a guy to do when trying to charm the chicks and has to compete with such charlatans?

I don't know. I don't even think that Avis knew. I thought Steve was on the left and Mike was on the right.

Glenn and I enjoyed meeting Newman and Roger and photographing them, as well as their fuzzy cuzzins, Hannah and Cooter at OBX. Newman is quite the handsome hound and Roger....what can I say.....the little bat eared beast is just as cute as a bug's ear! We so enjoy your blog
