Yesterday, Julie brought home a box that contained, among other things, 71 old t-shirts of mine.
So of course, I had to take a picture of each one and write up my memories of it.
Here you go: 71 Old T-Shirts. Occasionally, you see my feet or Julie's knees.
There's still some fiddling to do with tags and titles, but they're all uploaded, and in order of being unpeeled from the stack. (The stack itself, however, was random.)
I enjoyed browsing through those.
I fear that I've been harsh and made abrinsky
throw away most (all?) of his unwearable t-shirts. I've been feeling guilty about that since I realised I could have make a made them into a quilt. Now I feel even more guilty.
There's plenty of clothing that Julie's made me throw away. ;> All the paisley shirts, for instance.
I haven't read many of the writeups yet, but I do like your taste in shirts. :)
Very cool! I need to do something like this.

I've got some old ones waiting for documentation before they're formally scrapped. I should get on with it. And maybe some of the newer ones too, they're now getting old. Apparently time keeps passing while I'm not paying attention.
It's getting to the point in our lives where "newer" could still be a couple decades. Hah!
What a great idea. Dang that's a lot of shirts! I've already learned one thing I didn't know before: "The Fremont Solstice Parade was founded by emigres from Santa Barbara."
I saw "Don't sweat the petty things; pet the sweaty things" attributed to George Carlin in a recent QOTD or sig.

My reaction, too. Document them? I love photos that take up even less space than prints and negs.
If there were anything debilitating about T-shirts, I'd have to join a 12-step program
among other things, 71 old t-shirts?
Your standard grocery-store banana box ((I'm up to about 9)) holds about 40 T-shirts, so that must have been a very large box.

It was pretty large. They used to be in a cedar chest that we emptied out for some reason.
very cool post.
when i started reading the first sentence and got to "a box containing", i was expecting it to end with "a new kitten" or "a new puppy" :-)
Well, our apartment explicitly states no pets. And, worse yet, between the two of us we're allergic to anything we might want to live with. Which is sad!
I have been trying to contact you. Please call me.
We are in communication!
Which is better than being incommunicado, I'm sure.
