The guy I got a couple of nicer suits from got them all ready to go in the tailoring process. Tags removed, vent clipped, pockets opened. And my name was on a tag stitched into the inside of the jacket on the pocket. No idea why you would do anything differently....

That was freshman year of college for me. Fall of 1999. I remember watching it in the dorms. Hard to believe 15 years later it is still on the air in some form. ...

Team Green Apple here. Definitely an improvement. If Skittles would go the way of M&M's and sell individual colors, I'd love it. I know all M&M's are the same, just different color candy coating. But it would be great to get a bag of Green Apple, Red, and Purple. frick Orange and Lemon. ...

The real money grab is when they require you to buy their ammo. I've never been to a no reload place but one time went to a new place with my father in law that wanted us to buy from them and wouldn't let us shoot WWB. We walked out. ...

What does she intend to use it for? Just something like a Case Trapper with a couple of blades, or would she rather have a Swiss Army something? I'd stay away from a lockback with a 9 year old. Of course girls are more mature than boys so she might be fine. I still have a couple of scars from my...

I think we have the tee pee. My little sister sweared by the thing with my nephew. I never used it. In fact, the only time I got pee'd on was in the hospital a couple of days after he was born. The nurse needed to change a bandage on the circumcision, and I had to hold his legs out of the way....
| O-T Lounge|| Photography Classes around Birmingham - TU Rob on 12/16/14 at 4:10 pm|
I was thinking about getting my wife (no pics) some photography classes for a Christmas present. We're on our second Canon D-SLR and she has the external flash, and a variety of lenses for it already, mostly from the first canon we had. She likes to think she knows what she's doing, but it mostly ...

I can't wait to invade the classy Target shoppers the week after Christmas and scoop up all the colored LED's. They'll be sipping their Starbucks, looking fine in some Yoga pants and boots, and turn their nose up at the clearance section of Holiday items. I'll swoop right in and fill up the buggy ...

We went to see All the Pretty Horses on Christmas Day. We were down visiting my family, and had sat around most of the day when Dad got the idea to take us all to the movies. It was nice to get out of the house for a couple of hours, and most businesses are closed Christmas day so a movie was the ...

Classy way to light those menthols.
My last job we all got a bonus. It was based on years of service, and it was kind of weird because it was a flat amount. Seems like a % of salary would have been better. I got around 1,500 the first year, 2,500 the next, and then ...
