Boom, roasted.

+1...my first thought as well.


GMMcL: Can't wait to hear more about this sale!!

Big shout out to SpooPoker for sending me a box of awesome! My doorbell rang and I open it to see the postman with a USPS box which always has me quickly racking my brain trying to remember what I ordered. My dog was curious and trotted over to stick his head out and see who it was. Apparently this postman, filling in for someone else, was terrified of dogs. His eyes got huge and he ran backwards quite a few steps. I had to tell him that he's friendly, but there was no way he really believed that. He basically tossed me the box and the scanner to sign. I felt bad but couldn't help to laugh. Does this guy look scary??

I guess he could be, under the right circumstances....

He musta been a cat lover! biggrin.gif  Were you the one who took your dog to Italy and had a bunch of people ogling over your pooch? This was a year back.

Does anyone know the maker of the tux? Going to post in the labels thread but since Im here...

I'd know it anywhere. GFT SpA. Most of their stuff was half canvas. They had the license for Armani Collezioni and Valentino (among others) in the 1990s. Went belly up around 2004ish. That ripped out tag could possibly be Valentino. Or it might be Ungaro Uomo. Don't think it was Armani. From all the cues in the photos, I'd say that's from the Italy factory, but I would need to ask around among former employees to verify, and determine whether it's possible to more accurately date the tag based on color, layout and content of the mfr tag.

Lots of Sulka popping up lately!

Found some sweet white Le Coq Sportif shoes a couple days ago. Spent an hour yesterday cleaning up the suede trim on the front. Stepped in dogshit that my neighbor left in my front yard and didn't clean up. Didn't realize until an hour later. Now it's all over both shoes. Don't have the will to clean them up again. May just throw out or re-donate to GW. fml

Thanks! He's my pride and joy. A wonderful breed if you have time and patience for an intelligent dog with lots of energy and a strong independent way of thinking.

You have a great memory! I think I inadvertently started the dog derailment last year when I added some photos from our holiday in Croatia (close with Italy). We've never figured it out, but Chinese and Japanese tour groups go crazy for him. It has happened in numerous cities. I joke that I must be in quite a few slideshows somewhere in Japan.

Dog story spoilered for the uninterested
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I had a conversation with one guy in a tour group in Prague that went like this:

Man: Beautiful dog! He died natural?
Me: Thank you! Died?
Man: Yes, died.
Me: Well, he's pretty young.
Man: No, color...dyed. Or natural?
Me: Oh, no, that's his natural color.
Man to group: [Translating that I don't dye him.]
Group: OOOOOH AHHHHHH.

Then everyone filed up and whispered to me that he was very pretty. I thought it was great. nod[1].gif

My wife captured this scene in Croatia:

I'm out of town for a week or longer, but when I get back I can grab a fishing vest from H Peterman if you want it. M that fits pretty big, it hasn't moved in over a month so I'm betting it will still be there when I get back.

Also I'm gonna be up in Boston and the Hudson valley soon fight[1].gif

Grabbed another tie this morning at the local GW/Boston. (Available)

post #75371 of 109379
On the tie crafts conversation. My aunt makes handbags out of thrifted ties. She certainly doesn't care about brands. Only colors and being clean. $5 in ties gives her a product that sells for $45 at craft shows and flea markets. When I told her about some of the brands I look for she laughed and told me she's probably destroyed some great ties. Here are two she made for my sister.
