My husband—the man with the spirit of a little boy

Pete wearing his WWII jacket

Pete wearing his WWII tunic

During most of the time we were up in the Adirondacks, Pete ran around in one of either two outfits: a WWII jacket, and a WWII tunic. He loves anything WWII, and he was super excited when we ordered these from an eBay seller a few months ago.

He wore the jacket on the way up to the park, but most of the time he sported his little tunic. He wore the tunic around the cabin, without pants, for some reason (he still had his boxers on), prompting my 5-year-old niece Amelia to ask at one point (while he was changing from a day of swimming), "Is Uncle Peter going to wear his dress now?"

Having been with a man for over 20 years who was (presumably still is) mad about all things WWII this made me smile. Such a familiar story! :)
