Why I stopped buying clothes

PJs were last item, except for a pair of jeans.
I bought two pair six years ago, they were $1.00 each at WalMart in their Fall Clearance Sale.

The Kids and Mrs. Jim buy them for me.
I am getting them trained pretty good. Most of the time the clothes even fit.

More than half of the clothes people buy are golf shirts. I have them trained for this too, they MUST HAVE A POCKET. But not very many golf shirts have pockets any more so a lot I get don't have them. Mrs. Jim is best at finding ones with pockets.

Money or gift cards are next in line for what people give. They think I will buy me some new clothes but that seldom happens.

Mrs. Jim is my fashion director.
They things I buy for myself generally don't match or aren't stylish. When I dress up I ask her how my clothes will look, quite often even before I even put them on. She buys me very fashionable duds if I will just wear them.

I am a retired college teacher, professors are supposed to look seedy.
And I do.

Now I need reader help. I started this post back in February with a topic outline having only the first three reasons and no explanations.

I have forgotten any other ideas I had on why I stopped buying clothes but I know there are many more.

Your input won't hurt my feelings and will help a lot with this post.

Thank you.

UPDATE: Jim is home from his procedure and is OK. We are checking our e-mail and things like that. I'd rather go for a walk but he is a little groggy for that. In fact he slept a couple of hours after he got home. And after feeding me.

He said everything went pretty well except that we won't be eating peanuts anymore.

"Nothing by mouth to eat or drink after midnight" [two of us]

UPDATE: Adi is home and resting. She was so glad to see me when I came to 'rescue' her, she ran all around the vet's office--on her leash--barking and yelping. She was very hungry when she got home. I probably didn't help her enough there, they have her on half meals until tomorrow to help her throat rest.

Adi goes under the anesthetic, knife, and scraper. We go in at 9:00 to Dr. Hablinski at the Willis Animal Clinic.

She will have another cyst removed (link to previous surgery) from her right front paw topside. While she is under Dr. Hablinski will clean her teeth. She has had her teeth cleaned once before, also under anesthetic.

Of course she had to be squeaky clean. She tolerates her bath but really gets frisky after.


I will be on a liquid diet today as Friday (5-2-2008) I will go in to St. Lukes at the Woodlands at 9:00 for a colonoscopy.

Both of us can have our meds, Friday until I get back home it is nothing by mouth except for my blood pressure pill and a sip of water.

Answers to the post below

These four (ladies commenting in the post below) had all lost their Bibles. Our Minister of Administration (lady on the right) opened the lost Bible closet for them to look.

None of theirs were found.

At San Jacinto College, every summer we auctioned off all the lost items not claimed.
I found a $20 bill once, no one claimed it so it was mine in the summer. This was because I had asked for it when bringing it in.

Legally, if the finder when turning the the lost item in requests, it can be his if the owner doesn't show up. There are a few loop holes around this rule.

Basically it is 'finders keepers, losers weepers' unless we can identify the loser. The loser has absolute right to the property.
The riddle answer: a newspaper (I misspelled read). This is an old grade school riddle, at least in Nebraska.

What's going on here? Hint: "They will go to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, But they will not find it."

"It was little and red" (Note 2)

"Mine might be in there too"

"I don't have my name in mine"

"I hope someone is putting it to good use"

What have you said?

1. "People will stagger from sea to sea And from the north even to the east; They will go to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, But they will not find it."
Amos 8:12
2. What is black and white and red all over?

Again, have you said words similar to what these above were saying?

What were they?
