    Then there is my neighbor Jeffrey. His kids are mid-teens.

    He wears his thin, shiny gym shorts and a tee-shirt with the sleeves torn off - - -and flip-flops when he is outside, whether sitting around the picnic-table with his buds, mowing grass, burning leaves, or running his snow-blower down my front walk. He WILL put on a hoodie, covering his head, (but won't zip it up)) if it is snowing, but not otherwise. And he IS outdoors a lot, all year.

    Mrs. Flash asked his wife about it once, a half a decade ago, and the only answer she got was, "Ahhhh - - - you know how Jeffie is. He played football when he was at the University." (that is, upstate, in COLD country)

    A long sleeved hoodie and long pantalones would make my dermatologist ecstatic. Expect she would also approve a head to toe wet suit as proper swim wear. She says it's better than basil cell carcinoma or worse.

    96º and about 75% humidity the other day -- saw several black hoodies. Black or dark gray seem to be prevalent.
    I also recall many years back the gothic people in knee-high black boots, all black long clothing and a big old long black overcoat -- in the middle of summer.

    What the hoodie class wears doesn't bother me at all - it's their discomfort, not mine. BUT if I see one in a store or on a parking lot, I watch EVERY move they make.

    95 degrees and 90% humidity yesterday and a guy standing on a street corner, in full sun, wearing a red flannel jacket and wool cap. I guess he's just cold natured.

    When I see some kid in the Texas heat with a hoodie on like that, I move my shooting hand a little closer to the butt of my gun. Just sayin'.

    And, you know, if no one got skin cancer in their old age, what would they do for a living? I have a wide brimmed summer hat that has mesh in it to allow the air to circulate. I haven't been doing much fishing, usually wear it when working in the yard or out back on my place in summer. Ain't much you can do when fishing. The sun reflects off the water right under that brim. But, if I work a friggin' hoodie, I'd be wetter than if I just jumped in the water.

    They make these fishing shirts, mesh in the back for air circulation, sleeves that roll up and a strap to keep 'em from rolling back down, you've probably seen 'em. I call 'em "Port O'Connor shirts" because they seem to be en vogue in POC. I have one, but the thing is NOT all cotton, has man made fabric in it that doesn't breath. The mesh in it doesn't make up for the awful fabric. I really bought it because, at the time, living in Port Lavaca, I figured I'd blend in and the shirt is very loose, long tail, and covers an OWB weapon rather well. But, after wearing it in the heat, it's been on a hanger in the closet ever since. I got the thing at Academy, but every convenience store and bait shop in Port O'Connor has 'em.
