Long Johns / Calzoncillos Largos

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

I’VE BEEN DEALING recently with some advocacy issues for The Kid Brother that have caused me to lose sleep. It will all be worked out and he’s sleeping like a baby, which is all that matters.

Meanwhile, the temps here had dropped a bit. We’ve had some days with highs just barely reaching (60F) and nights as low as 8C (46F) I know. I know. I won’t get any sympathy. But, the top photo is of San Geraldo on a cold night last week. It did cause him to finally get out his long underwear. Unfortunately, he did so Friday when the temperatures had risen.

We went to Primavera for dinner and talked with handsome and stylish Fran about how surprised we were by the springlike weather. San Geraldo showed Fran his white socks and black long johns.

Fran said he was surprised, too. He exposed his ankle to display identical black long johns. How cool is San Geraldo?

RECIENTEMENTE HE ESTADO lidiando con algunos problemas de apoyo de El Hermanito que me han hecho perder el sueño. Todo se resolverá y él estará durmiendo como un bebé, que es todo lo que importa..

Mientras tanto, las temperaturas aquí habían bajado un poco. Hemos tenido algunos días con máximos apenas alcanzando 16C (60F) y noches tan bajas como 8C (46F). Lo sé. Lo sé. No obtendré ninguna simpatía. Pero, la foto superior es de San Geraldo en una noche fría la semana pasada. Eso hizo que finalmente sacara su larga ropa interior. Lamentablemente, lo hizo el viernes cuando las temperaturas habían subido.

Fuimos a Primavera para cenar y conversamos con Fran, guapo y elegante, sobre lo sorprendidos que estábamos por el clima primaveral. San Geraldo le mostró a Fran sus calcetines blancos y sus calzonzillos largos negro.

Fran dijo que él también estaba sorprendido. Expuso su tobillo para mostrar su ropas interiores idénticas. ¿¡¿Qué guay es San Geraldo?!?

  1. Ya gotta do what ya gotta do! What a cute photo!
    In case you were wondering (lol), I have been wearing long underwear from October to May here on the ‘tundra’ since we got back from Vancouver in ’82!!

    1. Wilma:
      He can get away with just about anything. Well, except for the day I made him go back in the house and change when he was wearing, a white V-neck T-shirt, grey hooded sweatshirt, too-short off-grey sweatpants. white socks, and brown leather shoes. There ARE limits!

  2. I like my Calzone filled with ricotta. As for long johns, don’t have any – thought I wouldn’t need them here in NM.

    1. Frank:
      I kept one pair of silk long johns for when we travel to places like Norway… or New York in winter (just in case). I spent one winter there while my mother was in hospital and was so glad I brought them. That was the year there were ice floes in the Atlantic Ocean in Brooklyn.

  3. You know, cold is cold, dammit! It has gotten into the mid thirties at night here. No snow, but cold is cold, dammit! I sleep with my window open under three blankets and a pajama top. I love fresh air, but, cold is cold dammit! SG has a very warming smile. I have really got to get over this inappropriate crush 🙂

    1. Deedles:
      it’s not an inappropriate crush! And you’re not the only one. It’s been the story of my life with him and, since arriving here in Fuengirola, he’s got a bevy of Spanish women who adore him. Dammit. We haven’t yet experienced freezing temps down here, although it has dropped to as low as 39F overnight (in Sevilla when we lived there). Jerry’s mother in South Dakota always slept with a window slightly open. Minus 50F, open window!

    1. Debra:
      The situation with my brother (financial) has been very frustrating because i NEVER want to feel indispensable to him and in this case, I don’t know what would have happened had I not been around. But, as I said, all that matters is that he’s not aware of the specifics AND he’s OK again.

  4. I’ve been wondering how your brother is doing. I’m glad he’s sleeping well, even if you’re not! I hope everything works out soon. You really ARE a great big brother.

    1. Jennifer:
      He’s been doing OK, but a financial issue (which I’m hoping isn’t theft) has caused challenges and I only just got to the crux (although not the specifics). We wired some money and he’s unaware of my suspicions or how angry I had gotten. AND he was able to go bowling yesterday, so all is well in his world.

  5. He’s cool and warm at the same time! That’s talent. I wear the long johns on walks with the dog when the outside temperature is below 5ºC. Here it happens quite frequently.

  6. Ah muffin – 46F – 7C so you’re talking late spring weather right? I pull my long Johns out at -20C said he in a lumberjack like voice.
