The weather was nice (50s) so I didn't need my winter coat (which still smelled a bit like the MLK party- heavy on the fry oil and fish). So what did I top my 'dressed-up' outfit with?
A vintage FFA blue corduroy jacket.
I've always been fascinated by the FFA kids (I was in 4-H). At the National FFA Convention kick-off luncheon I sat next to the man who's company embroiderers the jackets. I started searching eBay for an Indiana FFA jacket, but never found one. I finally bought this 1974 Iowa version.
When I picked Tammy up, I apologized for being late explaining that I've changed clothes in an attempt to look 'hot.' And apparently that included an FFA jacket.
It didn't seem to impress age-appropriate man, but this too-young boy was very interested.
I hate it that my most desired quality I'm looking for in a date is "age appropriate."
