Re: Boots for heavy rain

I am with Kyle.

I have owned a pair of Bean Boots (8") for over 20 years. Had them resoled by Bean twice. My pair are lined with both Gore-Tex and Thinsulate.

Have never had an issue with them. My son even borrows them on occasion.

Re: Does anyone wear briefs anymore...

I purchased a package of the "Y-Fronts" On Wednesday night. So far so good. I am very particular about the veracity of the elastic around the legs. I need containment and support. I tried the Hanes X-Temp recently...they did not meet the standard. Should have known to expect that from something I bo...

Does anyone wear briefs anymore...

I am beginning to think I am the last holdout. I go to a shop and look for SAXX or Tommy John. The retails now carry boxer briefs only.

Re: Sciatic nerve and inverstion tables

Gary, I actually use the TriHold wallet and have carried it in my front pocket for maybe 4 or 5 years now. Now the problem is that the cell phone case I have does not have a belt clip, and I have to carry it int he back pocket.

Re: Long time...no see...

Thanks, gentlemen. It has been a long time coming. I am still not completely comfortable with some of the logistics of this...being away from family and all. But I do believe that God provided this opportunity for me. I am going to take advantage of it and seize the opportunity to change my life and...

Re: Just in - Tilley Hats business for sale?

I think I may have once shared how my Father-in-law somewhat sneakily ended up with my Tilley.

There is a KSO nearby. I may have to drop in next week and replace that hat with a new one. May even get a different color.

Re: Taking a break from the news

Gary, I have started getting a little more selective on my use of social media. I have been a heavy social media user for some time. But filtering out the noise is helping m think more positively. I really is amazing how surrounding ourselves with negativity...whether it be negative people, or negat...

Long time...no see...

So I have been absent for some time. I figured I would check in and update you guys on some big changes in my life in recent weeks. As you guys know...my job situation has been somewhat unstable for the last couple of years. In early May, I had a situation present itself to me in a way that I had to...

Re: Sciatic nerve and inverstion tables

So I am still having problems from time to time. But I have had to stop going to the chiropractor for reasons I will explain in another thread. Analysis revealed that my L5 was slightly tilted. I think this may be the culprit. I also think I may have caused it with the way I cross my legs. Always le...

Re: Coffee and the grinding thereof

Wow!!! I have been missing a great thread. I love coffee I have a local roaster in Huntsville that has a great Creme Brulee. I also really like his Guatemalan. I do not drink as much in the summer because by 8am in Alabama, it is already hotter than a smoldering sack of crap! But I think you guys ar...

Fun Hobby coming to an end for this year...

One thing I really enjoy doing is doing Public Address Announcing for my son's high school baseball games. His team plays in the Alabama State semifinals tomorrow afternoon. There will be a double header and if necessary a game 3 on Wednesday. It will be the last time because if they advance, the fi...

Re: Against the grain

I think I could pull it off for a day or two if I shaved daily. But I think the irritation would be too much after a couple of days.
