Fall Shorts

I used to work with a fellow who started wearing his shorts in May and would not give them up until late November no matter what the weather was like.  When I saw the challenge to make fall cards at Sassy Cheryl's, I decided this image would make a great card and then the sentiment popped into my so I just had to make it.  I haven't seen my former co-worker in a couple of years but I bet if I sent the card to him, he would get a chuckle out of it.
