DH tried on a bunch of his shorts last night in preparation of our upcoming IOS cruise...and it seems as though he's grown a bit! So where is the best place to get some shorts this time of year?

Outdoor stores like Bass Pro Shops and Gander Mtn. have shorts this time of year as do sports places like Academy and Sports Authority. Actually, here in Houston you can pretty much find shorts anywhere at any time!

Departure port cities that are usually warm all year round are good places to find them as well as on line.

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
That is a funny question because we have been on a quest to find smaller shorts for our cruise and can not find them anywhere in New Orleans.... I went to three malls here and not one pair of shorts! Went to Dillards and asked the lady, where are your shorts? She replies we have none, its winter. My response was, well it is 75 degrees outside... We are in the situation!

My husband just bought four pair today off the clearance rack at Kohls. Cost for all four pair totaled $14.08. One pair was a linen blend for $4.00.
My mom also bought several pair for herself today at Kohl's. Going to Hawaii in less than 4 weeks so they will get used soon. Have to love clearance racks.
The DH and I went to Dillard's this past weekend and bought 14 pairs of shorts between us, $2.99 a pair!!! I bought all Liz Claiborne and he bought the Dillard's brand, Roundtree and York. We were so excited to get such a deal. We are all set for our cruise

I just went to Target today and all their xmas stuff was on clearance and they were bringing out summer stuff. Bathing suits, shorts, tanks, etc. . . . And I am in Maine where winter lasts through at least mid April.
