or, Hey! Have a photo post! :lol:

Meet Sam:

Sam before 1:21:16

This was him at 8:45 this morning, in the Jeep. We were on our way to meet the Vet! And to have a Spa Day - we call him a Tribble for a reason. Long hair....but full of mats. And he had fleas. :ugh: But our Vet got him all fixed up:

Sam after 1:21:16

This is Sam at 4:30 this afternoon, also in the Jeep. He looks like a naked lion. :lol: The Vet gave him a clean bill of health - except he needs to lose about 10 pounds. He weighs in at 28 pounds....he's a brick. With legs. And no longer a Tribble. (For the moment - we will let him grow his fur out again, but we'll keep up with the brushing.)

However, it's 38* right now. So, here's Sam now, on the couch:

Tigger's a little upset - that's HER sweater - but he needs it a little bit more than she does. She can jump up on the bed and burrow under the comforter, he can't. Yet. :evil grin:

While you're here, let me give you a quick peek at my 1941 Homefront Overalls, V.2.0:

2016 Overalls v.2.0 back

Sorry for no action shots, but - it's 38*, and it's RAINING. :ugh: They'll be put to use beginning tomorrow AM - they are sturdy, and the fabric is thick enough that it's warm. I'll try to take some interior shots - this pair is a HUGE improvement over V.1.0! I'll detail that out, too, just because. :lol: (Hey, it's blog fodder - I'll take what I can get, thankyouverymuch! :wink:) The fit is better - but it gives me a bit of a larger belly than I actually have. Still....I can MOVE in them, and the point was something I could wear to WORK in, so it's a win. I added 2" to each leg piece, or 4"/side. I'll talk about that, too, because I'm proud I figured it out!

I need to get some measurements off of Sam so I can make him a fleece sweater (won't that be cute, matching PJs for me and the dog? :snerk:) I know he's cold - poor thing. This isn't the right time of year for a full clip, but we had no choice.

Laters!
