Union Suit Fan: 


My buddy likes to strip to his Long Underwear
before beginning his Yoga Pose

Union Suits are much more comfortable
than Yoga Pants

Gives Away Clothes; Goes Home in Union Suit

Sherman, Tex., Dec. 22, 1916,- Howard Brown is just the age to interpret everything literally. He recently heard a sermon on the text: "It is more blessed to give than receive." The words "even the coat on your back" stuck in his mind.
His mother was horrified when Howard returned from school in his union suit - minus his shirt and trousers. He had met a little boy in rags who was cold, he explained, and had put the sermon into practice.  

  

Thanks to Clay from Dallas, Tx who forwarded this article regarding his great grandfather who as a 12 year old boy generously stripped to his long johns to literally give away the clothes off his back to a less fortunate little boy. "Gives Away Clothes; Goes Home in Union Suit" read the headline accompanying this newspaper article which first appeared in the Sherman Texas Democrat. The story was carried in newspapers across the nation just in time for a heart-warming story at Christmas time. What a great kid young Howard was!
