Tuxedo Tale

January 22, 2013


(Warning: This story might just be chock full of holes. All interested parties must fill in the details.)

Once upon a time and long ago, there was a blue tuxedo that was new. Some nice man probably wore it to something formal.

Then it was used. Brad bought it for cheap at a thrift store.

Brad wore it to all fancy occasions at Concordia.

Who are those whippersnappers in that photo? Brad, Kathryn, me, Lloyd, Samith.

Time went by……

Brad brought it (at Beth’s request) to Seward this summer.

For some reason (and unbeknownst to Beth), he took it back home in October.

In January, Beth needed it. She checked with Brad (who is now in Hawaii) to see if it was still at our house.

It was not. It was in Baltimore.


But Peggy saved the day!

In all it's ancient glory!

Denis (Brad’s roommate) got it to Peggy and she mailed it here quick as can be. Now, that tuxedo is doing some good at Concordia!

    Are you going to do a Lawrence Welk-type talent show with the preschoolers????


  2. Brad Said on:

    I got the tuxedo for $1.
    I acquired the ruffly shirt at a separate time for $3


  3. Peggy Said on:

    And it looks like Kathryn is wearing a light blue dress to match Brad’s tux. That is so sweet.

    Was the picture from a dance or prom?


  4. Deborah Said on:

    Are you going to put the link on here to show how it was used?

      It’s the orange ‘Click here’ button at the bottom. I don’t know if it will work if you’re not signed in to Facebook. I added a different link if that one won’t work for you.

    Good teamwork!
    Where is Samith’s date? Was she (Steph?) the photographer?
    And on a completely unrelated note, next week my son is going to build his own ukulele (correlute) and learn to play it at school! Cool, eh?
