Today is a day of remembrance. A day of celebration of honor and patriotism. A day to be with family and close friends, and probably also one involving the grilling of meats, or tofu, or whatever.
Not to mention, it’s the first glorious day of summer.
Well, at least the way I measure it, summer has started. At this very moment, the thermometer approaches 80 degrees and the jet skis are humming up and down lake. Plus, School is out and the pool is open…
So you’re really going to argue that we’ve got to wait three more weeks just to make it “official”? Seriously?
Tell it to the shorts, because the ears aren’t listenin’
I would totally wear that, wouldn’t you?
Here at Mad Gringo, summer means we’re busy cookin’ up some new gear for your enjoyment. Board shorts are on the way, and I can tell you, they’re killer cool. Alas, the sample beach towel ended up looking more like an Elvis on velvet painting, so it’s back to the drawing board, there.
Mad Evan and I just reviewed a new set of sample Tropicals, some of which are so sublime that you’ll automatically go into a yoga chant just by looking at them. Others are so loud you’ll be knocking people over just by walking into a room. Unfortunately, the cycle between pattern review and receipt of order is weeks, not days, so look for those toward the end of the hot weather. I’m gonna call them the “Gamma” Collection, because I’m clever like that.
And for you non-early bird Father’s Day shoppers – while the big discount on Tropical Shirts closes out on May 31st end of the day, we have some package deals coming that I think you’re going to love. No more info on that right now – you’ll just have to tune back in to Gringo Central to check it out sometime after the first of June.
Long after that, I’ll still be here keeping the plates spinning.
