    We should all meet up at a 'central location' with all of our back stock, and buy/sell/trade. That'd be awesome.

    I can't decide if those Croc/Gator and Ostrich are awesome or awful. Same feeling about this Monk Strap Boots, except on those I'm leaning toward awesome!

    Are these a thing? Affiliated at all with C&J? Or just a copycat?

    I'm in! Its only 2:59 from Wichita. Lebanon is pretty close to Nebraska, so its a 3 hour drive from the Omaha Airport.

    @drlivingston its 1000 miles and 14 hours from Birmingham.

    @TheNeedMachine it is only about 80 miles further than Birmingham, maybe you could ride with Dr. L.

    @capnwes You could the mother of all thrifting loops -- Its 1260 Miles and 19 hours for you.

    @Thrift Vader , You might want to host a Far East SF summit, I can't imagine how long it would take to get here. If you could get to Alaska, you could drive down from Alaska and pick up some of the Canadian crew. See you in 2017!

    If you want to make it Wichita (we at least have an Airport), I'll bring the snacks! :) Ok, actually, I would rent a freaking ballroom at a hotel if a bunch of members actually brought their stuff.

    Jones is just a high street brand here in the UK (like Clarks, Schuh etc), so nothing special as far as I'm aware.

    I don't have any answers for you. And that's probably not what you want anyway. So, I'll just say, Jesus that sucks! Sometimes when things suck, it might be comforting to know that at least other people know how much it sucks. So, You are not alone.

    We all owe our family a debt of gratitude especially for all they sacrificed for us. HOWEVER, you can't throw your whole life away for them if they are capable of helping themselves.

    I know this might sound a little too simple, but the reason cliches are so common is because for the most part they are accurate and true.

    The universe has a way of things working out. I don't know if its Fate, Destiny, Karma, God's divine plan, yin and yang, or just universal balance, but everything you have already done for your family will be rewarded one day. You can give yourself a break.

    Forgot to post this little find, no content listed but it feels like a silk/linen blend, and the colors are phenomenal - wish it was smaller!
