To say my husband adored Joe Paterno is a horrid understatement.

It’s been a sad day as my husband made two announcements:

1) JoPa died this morning…
2) To forever show my respect to him, I’ll be wearing his standard uniform of white socks, black shoes and pants rolled above the ankles.

“Forever?”  I ask.

“Forever!”  He says.

“Forever” is till someone makes fun of him….then I get my husband back.
Not a fashion icon by any means, but pants “to the shoes” is all I’m going for.
