  1. So many plaid items! I can picture each item you mention. (I had to look up Wellingtons.) I'm curious about the inspiration for your poem, Kim. Did you notice all the plaid items and decide to catalog them? Or was it a prompt? It's very interesting. The family pajamas made me smile. Yes, “timeless classic plaid.”
