I just got back from my pilgrimage to Chartres Cathedral...

...and all I got was this lousy tee-shirt. But according to this young whipper-snapper, I can't wear it in public, or I'm being immodest.

And to think I went for a loose fit. Thankfully, he's pretty much on the mark with everything else. Especially regarding attire for church. I never allowed my son to wear shorts in the house of God, even though his mother did. I stopped listening to her years ago anyway.

No mention on black-tie at weddings before six in the evening though.

Several years ago, I went to a certain seashore resort in NJ and was amazed to see women entering the House of God (a.k.a., Church) not only sleaveless, not only showing bare midriffs, but clad with bikini tops. Although they wore a "skirt" of some fashion, I'm not particularly proud to note that certain minds matters not necessarily conducive to saving their mortal souls.

I could make a pun about heavenly bodies, but but that would not be in keeping with the tone of this post.
