This is the season when thousands of Homeless, lonely, single, gloves end up atop roadside reflector posts. Hikers, skiers, and passer byes find these lost garments and place them on the nearest post. Sometimes they are hung in a tree or atop a signpost.
Rarely do you see two of the same. These lost and lonely fingers just point upward and eventually are lost forever. We all try to see if we can match a pair up but that is a hard job to handle.
Sometimes a scarf or hat show up. If you did not care whether your garments matched, you could create an entire wardrobe of warm but mismatched winterwear.
You can figure that matching gloves were forgotten atop the roof of the car or maybe laid in the truck bed. As they went down the road, the wind and bumps would eventually launch them aside.
Finders of these lost garments try to help them return to their mates and owners. Some are draped onto the branches or posts with their nose picking finger aloft. Others send a message of other finger messages.
If you adopt a pair of gloves, you can save a few bucks. Maybe consider washing and DE sanitizing them. If you find your own pair of lost garments and gloves, then that is even better.
Maybe go old school and run a glove attached cord through the coat’s sleeves. This has worked for kids since gloves were created.
Keep your fingers warm!
