Now guys seem almost to afraid to show their knees in shorts, let alone a skirt!


I remember how short girl's shorts were in the 70s, but not my shorts. Dunno why that is...

Top of kneecap "conservative"? Maybe way over there on the left coast...

Similarity to the men's basketball shorts circa the 50's a basic satin brief riding high on the thigh.
The current uniforms are satin pantaloons breaking just at the knee - talk about cumbersome athletic wear.
Sadly the modesty police just can't get it right in all sports - the Greeks had it right from the start !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

Indeed. Naked Ice Hockey should be an Olympic sport.

Now Daryl, you are cruel. That could be really painful on parts of the anatomy! Still shrinkage to the extent that everyone would look the same would take place! Oh, dear, that's an image I don't want at this time of night. I wonder where Santa is now?
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

We North Americans rely on NORAD for that information. Volunteers take time away from tracking airborne security threats and use the facilities to track Santa; an unintended benefit of the cold war. https://www.noradsanta.org/

Merry Christmas, all!

I’ve got my wife’s family staying. Eleven of us. No problems! I’ve been in my Black utilikilt all day - white top, ankle socks. Even walked my dog in it. I love it!

Excellent!
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.

Just to clarify. I was wearing the utilikilt, not the dog. That would just be silly...

I don't think I've ever seen anyone wearing a dog.
There is no such thing as a normal person, only someone you don't know very well yet.
