    The words are actually printed on the lens, I believe. The lenses are supposed to be removed and replaced with prescription lenses. Here is the tie...it is nice, right? I was going to throw it into my cabinet, but it's available if you want it!

    I've been to Garbage Pail National Park. Mount Garbage Pail is much smaller than you'd think.

    This was an amazingly informative article. Love this, does this guy have more info???

    Also, I will say that the Tom James Sartoria line is awesome. I have found two shirts from them and they are great quality, especially the fabric itself. I've seen Filo A' Mano orphans and they always look and feel nice but never thought of picking them up. If I find SCs or suits, I will be from now on.

    I have vivid memories of playing with that suction-mouthed guy in the bathtub when I was a little kid. And the telescoping neck guy. And staging epic battles with all those dudes in Castle Grayskull.

    I spent a couple days roaming around Tampa, St. Pete and points nearby (Bay Area in general). Had some luck at the Salvation Army on S. MacDill in Tampa. None of the other chain shops were all that memorable (GW, SA, Sunshine)...had decent luck at indie / church-run thrifts, but those are always going to be hit or miss. That was about 2 years ago. When I went back last year I stayed on the Clearwater side of the bay - hit the regular shops - nothing memorable...went down to Bradenton & Sarasota and hit several but no big/memorable finds there either.
    I think your best bet is Naples, then on down to Miami-Dade-West Palm. I'm going back in Nov and will spend more time at the pool, beach and tiki bar and less time thrifting - maybe a half day at best - was never really worth the time & effort.

    Dude...it's obvious that they lace up the other way and are women's shoes. And that little tab on the front is to attach the optional tampon holster. Hoo man, I hope you know how to protect yourself, out among the hooligans of Switzerland, wearing girl shoes.
