But, with the change in seasons, it was time to fold and put away most of the short sleeve shirts and that meant digging into the pile to be sure I had all of them and then "Oh yes, I remember that one," and I started separating them all, by category and I now realize that I have at least fifty shirts, [not even counting T shirts.]
