1/2 price at Goodwill

Yup,my favorite clothier was having a sale this afternoon.

Short story.....wifey and I "must" attend a wedding this coming w/end.The only way I agreed to this involved a 10 pc KFC bucket(wedding food generally sucks)....and a side run to pick-up some old WW "arn" on return leg.

So,whilst wheelin and dealing with SWMBO.....her part being that wearing bloodstained camo was NOT an appropriate attire.Neither were any grease stains to be allowed.She basically was forcing her hand and trying to get me to go get some "real" clothes?

So,slipped into the "fancy" part of town and pulled into Goodwill.I got some Bass penny loafers and a navy,Brooks Bros. sport jacket for.....a grand total of 2.50$ and 3.50$ respectively........Cha-Ching!

So whats that translate to in "money for tools".....75 for shoes and at least a cpl hundred for the jacket right?

Therefore......275-6=269$ in the tool fund.BBBW

Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.

Nice, but I see a couple of catches here.....
#1 Is loafers and a sports jacket an appropriate attire for the wedding? Hairy legs will be showing.....

#2 Does the wife know about this deal? If she does-forget the 269$ for tools.

You've got to be kidding. I believe my personal appearance is a reflection on how I feel about myself, and what I wear. It's attention to detail, along the same lines of the way I live and doing my work. Wearing someone else's clothes...I don't think so. The only way I would do that is if I needed them to stay alive, and then I would kill for them.

Just remember...always shine the backs of your shoes. As you walk away that's the last they see of ya.

C-man....the turd in the punchbowl would say,"I ain't going"(to wedding).

But it's not about me,its about one of my extended family "sons" getting married.And also the lovely girl.......So,I sucked it up and will go and be happy.A KFC indused coma should be the hot ticket....seein as I don't drink.

Can honestly say I didn't wear a single necktie in 2011.'Bout the only place I make any attempt to get cleaned up is for church.....but they don't really care how a person is dressed.So it boils down to clean Khaki's and pinstripe shirt for me.....don't like it?Tough chit.

>Got well worn,bloodstained camo jackets

>Rd rashed,duct taped,custom racing M/C jackets

>Nasty,burn marked welding jackets

>Now I got me a Brooks Bros. sport jacket,haha

Cool stuff bw !!!!

Goodwill is one o' my favorite clothing stores.
Why spend $15-$25 fer jeans when you can git 'em fer under a buck and they're allready wore in

Check this clothes deal out. 'bout 40 years ago i was headed north fer some slayin o' the elusive odoculis virgininas. I was about halfway there when i realized i fergot my longjohns. Into a GW i went jist fer a 2nd larger pair o' pants to wear over mine for warmth. I eneded up gittin me a genuine Woolrich plaid huntin coat with matchin pants with suspenders fer a mere $3.00 . Yep, i was surely toasty warm on that trip.
I still have that outfit in the cupboard upstairs.
It was state of the art 40 years ago before Thinsulate,Gortex & polypropelene

"Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for me; JESUS CHRIST and the AMERICAN SOLDIER. One died for my soul,the other for my freedom."

At birth, God bestowed each & everyone of us with the most important responsibility there is..................FREE WILL.

About 10 years ago, a co-worker was getting married. She decided on an Elvis wedding at 'The Little Chapel Of Flowers' in Las Vegas. We were all instructed to wear 1970's style clothes at the wedding. She had people coming from the Los Angeles, Denver, Seattle and Charlotte.

The man that ran the wedding chapel had seen everything before and nothing seemed to faze him until.... One of the people from Charlotte opened a brown paper bag and offered him a piece of fried chicken. From the expression on his face the chicken was a first.

Use the right tool for the job.

Thanks Jim,its a stock mirror from sLowes.Their bevel keeps getting more and more narrow on these things.......they make nice,quick presents.Put a very nice "poetic" quote on back.It was written in a pencil first...then a thinline ink pen chased the letters.....cleared over it.Paraphasing:It was about looking back over time,the things that stand out are the ones done with love.


rrich,wifey and I keep threatening to do the Elvis thing for re-uppin our vows.....corny?Yeah,but like the quote above...when things are done in the spirit of love....all that sorta goes away.

The secret to fried chicken(according to some)is a 5-10% salt brine.Soak in glass bowl overnight....fry as you would normally.Once you try it,it takes right much of the mystery out of KFC.See your cardiologist first.You have been warned,haha.BW
