    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    With Gene Wilder passing thought I might "thrift"one of his sartorial jokes on how he met Mel Brooks...

    In his first major role on Broadway, 1963 production of Bertolt Brecht’s “Mother Courage and Her Children.” The production ran for less than two months, and he came to believe that he had been miscast. The good news was that he met the boyfriend of the star, Anne Bancroft: Mel Brooks, who wore a pea coat the night he met Mr. Wilder backstage and told him, “You know, they used to call these urine jackets, but they didn’t sell.”

    So began the conversation that ultimately led to “The Producers.”

    Today we said goodbye to my only childhood pup, Missy.

    I'm only 26, so for the better half of my teenage years this pup was my go to. She's heard about the worst times of my life to the best times of my life. It's so hard to say goodbye but I know she'll be with many other pups in puppy heaven. Truly a man's best friend.

    Luckily, I haven't had to deal with many deaths in my lifetime, but to see a good one go really makes you realize how much today matters.

    R.I.P. Missy

    Less than dinner out with my wife last night...but more than the bottle of wine.

    ...

    Every day counts, wring as much as you can from it... I think Missy might be like this somewhere

    Nice! The circled "0" means it's from the artisanal line

    Allen Edmonds Burchmont and Shell Cordovan MacNeil, both in 10.5 D

    Of all places, purchased on that new Facebook Marketplace. For those unfamiliar, Facebook Marketpace is like Craigslist, only way trashier. Mostly used Victoria Secret bras and broken down cars.

    Very nice and rare piece. It is from the 0 10 artisanal line, made in France in the early 2000's. Size is "one size" T.U., Taille unique in french. I've sold lots of these pieces years ago from a friend's collection. They are very collectable items, waiting the right buyer they can be very profitable.

    Thank you so much! That helps a lot, especially with my headache in determining the size.
