You can't be serious. That looks like a Halloween costume.

Say what you will, but Fatty's wood-working skills are improving nicely.

Is that some kind of veiled gay reference, given you recent choice of wallpaper, Jack?  
The gay jokes are BACK, baby!

Say what you will Fatty-fans, but my current impoverished situation has me embracing the simple ways of Jebediah and his Shaker/Amish band. I am attempting to sew a button onto a 5 year old shirt. My ineptness forced Bert to commander the needle and thread, and he skillfully put the button back on as clean as Betsy Ross! Or so I thought....... Later, it was pointed out that I was walking about in my on the town gear with a button askew.  
Ummm, Thanks Betsy Ross.

Ross, I would never stoop so low as to throw about cheap, gay jokes. Don't be a blowhard.

I just saw this photo randomly and it reminded me that Fatty's shirt that I sewed the button onto crookedly was left behind at my house before Fatty left the US.  It's still in my closet.

Fatty, I bet you've been wondering where it's been all this time, haven't you?

Now that you mention it......  Where is my button askew shirt?  You might have noticed that I have yet to correct your brazen-buttonery.  Call me lazy, but I wore that shirt when laundry supplies were low, always self concious of the crooked button.  I tried many techniques to try and disguise the button, but always fell short of re-sewing it.  I don't know why, it is not too difficult and would take 5 minutes.

At least you have a nice Fatty souvenier.  A Fatty-scented air freshner to make all your clothes smell Fatty Fresh (TM).  Or do you use it in more private moments, when you miss dear Fatty.  Having it under your pillow so it seems like I am still there....  Maybe putting the shirt on with some baggy jeans and an Amish beard to BE Fatty for a moment.

I guesss the real questions is..........  Did you fix the button yet?

This picture is SO funny - It is perfect with the caption... and to put it in Black and White....   A Classic!  Funny story too, with you berating my sewing skills only to have you sew on the  button, CROOKED!  Which was not noticed until we were in a busy Chi-town Restaurant.

I was just admiring this picture today myself - strange coincidence.  I too remarked on my apparently-now-inferior captioning skills.  Perhaps the only picture I've posted with as sweet a caption was this one.  

I would like to note, however, that when you returned to the States for your wedding reception, as a wedding present I returned your shirt to you with the button properly sewn back into place.   It only took a couple of years, sheesh.
