Which ski area? I've been to Sunshine Village and Lake Louise. Beautiful place!
post #65072 of 125245
It was Sunshine with a second day at Nakiska, a smaller operation.
I agree, a beautiful place and it was a weekday so not at all crowded. Looking forward next year to probably Jasper.

Pretty interesting, it has another tag with BAA Code (like sheep haha) so you can look up the location of the sheep whose wool was used! My Code is CD5A818C5

Wow - definitely! I think William Yu is on part with WW Chan.

Looks like you guys had a great time and a lot of fun!


Also: Shot out to Evil Abed for an awesome trade! Even tossed in a couple extras! Thanks again! Love the shirt and tie!

very cool pics Boh! and quite the haul, as well.

 

If anyone would be interested in this Bozghese suit (cloth by Zegna) please let me know and I'll see if it's still there when I go next weekend. Tagged 46. Very minty.

Pleasure doing business with you as always. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

I'm going to get crazy with the Aldens you sent out...

 

Almost bought a crazy pair of old green captoes in my size this evening down the street. Never saw such a thing, seemed well built, but needing love. Couldn't figure out the maker, and then I saw in the maker tag- Stacy Adams... But this was old, and seemed like a much more legit shoe than we're used to seeing from them.

So, a couple of days ago I had a dream that I was at the opera and met up with EazyE and wife, and happened to sit in the same row as GMMcL.  No thrifting took place, but I imagine that what I was wearing was thrifted.  Oh, and the star soloist was Robin Williams, whom I met in the hall as he escaped after his last scene. puzzled.gif

Hey! That's exactly like my mom's sewing machine, which I grew up using a little bit.  My uncle got it for her when he lived in Japan.  Cool.

I've found a number of Johnston and Murphy and Allen Edmonds shoes over the years, and thought that was as good as it got out here.

 

Had a nice surprise today...

 

Crockett & Jones boots in pretty nice condition!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unfortunately, the size is 7 1/2 E (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

I think Chelsea is the model - haven't done any research yet.

Picked this up Sunday afternoon at the local GW.

1968 Akai M-9 w/ enough classical music to last me a while.

Plays smooth w/ great sound through two 20W self contained speakers.

BTW, if anyone comes across or has 7" reel to reel music they'd like to make available, I'm now looking!
