Snapshot of a pair of old cufflinks I used while working. My uniform then were long-sleeve, button-down white shirts, dark suits and reddish-colored ties. Those 9-to-5 times are gone. No suits and ties for me now. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.

  1. Buenos días, Omar! ¿Recordando las mancuernas? Tal parece que allí están reflejadas las puntas de las manos de su esposa y lo percibo como el cálido mensaje de cuando ella, con mucho cariño, le ayudaba a dar los últimos toques a su atuendo antes de salir.

  2. Hola Hilda:

    Las mancuernas eran parte de mi uniforme de trabajo, al igual que camisas imaculadamente blancas, vestidos oscuros y corbatas rojas. Después de mi jubilación donamos toda esa ropa a la iglesia.

    Ahora me siento incómodo con ese tipo de ropa. No quiero nada alrededor de mi cuello. Finalmente soy libre!

    En realidad, esas son mis manos mientras sostenía la cámara. Claro que sí, Aura siempre me inspeccionaba antes de salir al trabajo. Texaco era muy exigente en la apariencia de sus ejecutivos.



  3. Oh, I love this! I’ve slowly pared down the things I kept from my own father, but his watches and cufflinks still are with me. When I was in the high school band and had to wear a formal white shirt for concerts, I’d use his cufflinks. 😉

  4. Hi Linda:

    When I go out I don’t see that people are using cufflinks anymore. In my time, cufflinks were almost mandatory, but those were different times. Anyway, I found the twins in my closet yesterday while I was looking for a computer cable, so I decided to un-dust them and share it with my readers.

    Texaco was then very strict with the way their executives dressed. Now I can’t stand suits and ties. I’m a free man at last.

    Warm Regards,
