blue coat bites dust

... or "bites snow" might be a more appropriate expression. Jonathan's been wearing the winter coat that his cousin Josh (who is now 18 and a 6-foot-7, 280-pound Holy Cross football player) wore when he was a little guy. On Monday, when it was -18 degrees, the zipper failed just as Jonathan's EA Joe was getting him ready for home time. His teacher, Miss Mardicis, found some safety pins to hold the front together -- and thank goodness, since our only other alternative would have been a bungee cord. How pathetic is THAT?

Jonathan now has a very cute new green puffy coat. I'm not going to throw the blue one out just yet, though. If Josh becomes famous it might be worth something ...
