Ooooh... I am so tempted! You've probably realized I have a bit of a coat/jacket fetish. I think dentar
will think I've lost my mind if he knows I've brought home another one! :o) From the weight and description it reminds me a bit of one I have that was called a "lady's day coat". It's so perfect for spring/early fall weather.
I have often wished there was a good answer for chronic pain, especially the severe kind. I've witnessed how it can drag a person down, and the determination it takes to stand against it. It's one of the reasons I really want to literally slap people who sneer and talk about people just wanting narcotics or some such.
You can see their point, right? Who wouldn't want all the enchanting side effects that come with narcotics? Especially whe, during really bad flairs, they often only take the edge off. Grrrr.
The van Gogh teeshirt you posted a pic of is really lovely too. I often have to remind myself that I really only very rarely wear teeshirts and I already own way too many. :o)
