Was out briefly the other day, along with some personal stuff and housewares I grabbed these:


AE Manistee in Walnut 42.



Grabbed these for the gf because $5 and her size... and because I wanted to clean em up. 








Not sure why people give away shoes because they're dirty, these are $100 Adidas Solar RNR with Boost soles. If the gf doesn't want I can always hock em at Buffalo for 2-3X what I paid.


Speaking of Buffalo:



Traded them some j.crew shirts for this. :sly:

Also got rid of lots of average backlog shit. Overall, good day.

The Ebay Store is on vacation mode, and I'm wrapping up things in the office before my wife and I head out for a month on the road.


It's a horrible thing to lose a child, and I wouldn't wish that on even my worst enemy. The only upside is that we get to go do something we wouldn't normally have the ability to do.


We're heading north to Alaska after swinging through Northern California to visit friends. I've always wanted to drive the Alcan Highway. After that, we get to go to a Dolly Parton concert in Edmonton (apparently, my sister in law is a huge fan). There likely will be very little, if any, thrift stops; but hopefully the trip will help to recharge our souls.


Good luck out there. Come October, all your thrifts are belong to me.



For those who missed the post over in the Ebay thread, here's the condensed version of what happened... (Click to show)




We found out that my wife was pregnant back in the spring (early April, as I recall). Everything was going normally until we hit the 14 week mark. A routine ultrasound showed that the fetus had an enlarged bladder. We saw the one finest teams of doctors anywhere (certainly the best in Colorado). The diagnosis was a bladder outlet obstruction. After about a month, the bladder was shrunken back down, but the damage was done. Daniel had little to no kidney function. We knew going in that he was going to have little, or no, kidney function at birth. Our only hope was that the amniotic fluid levels would be maintained, as that is what allows for lung development. Unfortunately, we found a few weeks ago that the fluid was nearly gone.


My wife and I made the choice to pursue an Amnioport, which allows the doctors to add fluids to the amniotic sac through a port surgically installed. She had some contractions following that surgery, but they were controlled through drugs and she went home. Then last Monday night (August 22), she was having some heavy cramping and pain. We went into the hospital on Tuesday morning, where it was discovered that her cervix was dilating (anyone who's had kids knows what this means). She was going into labor, and the doctor suggested not trying to stop it, as there was likely a reason her body was rejecting the pregnancy (the almost certain cause is an infection allowed in by a ruptured amniotic sac); and we really do want to have kid(s).


Daniel was born at 8:11 PM on August 23, and lived for less than ten minutes. A team of nurses and doctors tried to revive him, but his lungs were not developed enough at 25 weeks to allow him to breathe.


Obviously, the last 10 days have been incredibly hard, but we are fortunate to have a small but supportive group of friends here. I'll leave you with this iPhone picture of Daniel's hand holding my finger. I'd like to think he was still alive at this point and felt the love of his parents.
