BLACK keys and black thumbs....



I am reading in the Guardian about the Black Keys and notice that I HAVE that jacket exactly.  I got it, um, quite distressed and vintage looking at a garage sale... it looks well lived in and wretched and punk... but at least it doesn't smell as bad as it used to!

That very same jacket can be seen below where I am holding up the wife's HUGE fern, which we finally repotted.  You will recall 2 things:  1)  that pot was an Easter gift I made for the wife, a HUGE flower pot! and 2) since I have a black thumb, it is wisest if I have as little as possible to do with caring for her plants, or anybody else's....

Have an awesome Monday!

Yay to black leather jackets. Black Keys aren't so bad either.

Love the jacket! I had houseplants back in the 80s and 90s but they didn't like me.

You are practically a rock star. Love the jacket and the fern….now quickly step away from any greenery! I hope black thumbs aren't contagious….
