Exercise in Utility
October 1, 2013 § 2 Comments
Although an afternoon monsoon in NOLA is more often an exercise in futility, a utility jacket like this one and these boots (c/o MG) make rainy days a little easier. At the sight of an overcast sky, this is my go to jacket. It’s been pelted with beads and beer during Mardi Gras and covered in mud during Dave Matthews’ rain-soaked Jazz Fest performance, but it continues to hold strong. Plus, y’all it has a removable hood. Rain jacket turned windbreaker. I know.
After a stop at The Shed in Gulfport the other weekend, I insisted MG pull the car over for a little “Roadside America.” Behold, this huge ass rocking chair. It’s not the world’s largest–that title belongs to these guys–but Dedeaux’s craftsmanship is pretty big and a challenge to climb.
A few passing big rigs honked their horns, while I struggled to find my way to the top. I gather they weren’t honking at me to be careful, but instead letting me know my unmentionables may have provided some roadside entertainment. Oh well. You win some. You lose some…and you get a few pictures to share.
