They are great. Not cheap but gorgeous retro designs. They drop a new school every week in the summer. They dropped Wisconsin last Saturday. Here is their stuff for example. Expect lots of retro Goldie's etc.

The website reminds me of the Super 70's sports website and other sites that sell retro or defunct stores shirts. You are correct to say that they are not cheap.

Since the stupid question thread is locked...

Anyone ever lost a tooth (in my case a molar) and elected not to replace it? I'm trying to decide to go with a bridge or not. It's not wickedly expensive (about $400) but if not having it doesn't present problems I might say eff it.

My dentist didn't seem overly anxious to get me in, but I didn't specifically ask him it there are negatives to leaving the gap unfilled.

Per my dentist wife. First, $400 is a steal. The downside is that over time, the teeth behind the gap will tilt forward, and could affect your bite. (Your teeth might not come together smoothly/comfortably when you bite down.) Her mother has a tooth tilted over 30 degrees.

Good to know. I am going back for a general cleaning and will press him harder for questions like I should have asked when I was there. I lean towards it being better to go with one than not but the area needs some time to fully heal after the extraction so it's ok to wait a bit.

This! My brother lost a tooth (not a molar) and at the time couldn’t afford to replace it. 10 years later he started having bite problems as per above post, his teeth shifted.
When he finally HAD to get it fixed he ended up with invisible braces first, then a bridge. It cost far more then $400 and far more then if he’d fixed it in the first place. Just do it!

The first time I had a legit shot to break 80, I was sitting 75 on the tee box of 18 at Stonebrooke. Hit a perfect tee shot. Hit my iron to the center of the green. First putt rolled about 3 feet by the hole. Second putt clownfaced back at me. Three-jacked for a 5 and an 80. I was so bitter.
Went back to where I first putted from on that hole to putt it again and drained it dead center. 🤬
Fortunately a couple weeks later I shot a 78 (thanks to three chip-ins) so it didn't haunt me for long. But it still bugs me.

The Fireman's softball tournament in Bloomington. Even though there are some things I don't enjoy (namely playing on fields without fences for half of your games) I always have a great time there. The weather was great this year and the rain we got during the week actually made the open fields more tolerable. Usually by mid-July the grass in those open fields is beyond dead so if you hit a ball that gets between or over the outfielders it rolls half a mile. The rain on Wednesday livened it up so balls slowed down enough a few times to actually be played.

The big beer mugs and corn roast helps too 🤣

It probably overall helped us yesterday. We were fortunate enough to have 3 very fast and 1 pretty fast outfielder this weekend so the opponents who wanted to show off how strong they were ended up hitting a lot of 350-375 foot fly balls. A couple guys got it over them for home runs, but far more tried and failed. (I tried twice, once it worked, once it did not). It's very aggravating to hit the crap out of the ball on a backspin line drive that goes 350 feet right where a guy is standing. 🤣

Unfortunately most of our infield was playing injured or out of position due to missing guys, but it was still fun.

Also, fairly sure you quoted the wrong post :lol:

I did quote the wrong post. As for no fences, helped people like me who were gap hitters (especially opposite field hitters). That ball would just roll, and roll, and roll. ;)

Well, it's Tuesday, before the Houghton trip...I don't have to guess where you are. I only have to guess at what you opted for, and on that, I have NO idea, the menu is that vast. :D

I'll add on to that theme of simple pleasures. Had to make a couple stops today to pick up some beer due to a mule request, and also to cash in some member benefits (again, for muling purposes, thanks to Viking and him naming me as his proxy). Both breweries I stopped at comped me a beer. :)

I picked up a nice mix: cream ale, lager, 2 fruited Berliners (which *I* even like), and 2 NE IPAs.

Saw a BMW today, totally pimped out (and no, it was not Armadillo's). Know why? The license plate was "LWYR4U."

You CANNOT make that up!!!!!!!!! JFC, that's a neon sign proclaiming yourself as a total D-bag! :D I had to laugh. My first thought was, "Huh, THIS is where Saul Goodman really ends up!"

Every season has its purpose and eventually a change. And I think it’s come time for me to retire from vending. While vending was a great part time job with flexibility and excellent pay for nearly the past 15 years, it’s also has changed and been more of a burden in last 5 years. And with being recently married (4/24/21) and having 3 kids, that burden is not worth it anymore. I’ve told myself over and over to never let myself be enslaved to a job, especially a part time job. While the part time money would be great and help out with family expenses, it’s also not worth losing out on the memories with my wife and 3 kids. As well as putting more tasks on my wife without me being around cause I’m out vending at one of the ballparks or stadiums in the Twin Cities.
I have lots of fun memories and stories from vending. Stories and memories that are mind boggling and book worthy… LoL!!! Though I feel I’m going to build greater stories and memories with my wife and 3 kids. Stories and memories that will be lifelong memories for me, but more importantly lifelong memories for my wife and 3 kids!!!

Good for you. Kids always remember the time spent with them. It doesn’t have to be a big event for them. My fondest memories of my dad is running weekend errands with him on Saturday mornings. The hardware store, gassing up the car (he’d “let” me wash the windows even though I could only reach part of the way), we’d end with a stop at the coffee shop for a donut. Your kids will soak in the fact you’re just there, I wish people didn’t underestimate that.
Honestly I’m surprised the road to Hell is paved at all.

One of the best memories for the middle kid was him and I were driving and hitting a deer. For me it was nerve racking and for him it was total excitement. I would prefer not to hit a deer again, but it is the little things I can fine and the kids have fun with. And the best part is day after day, all 3 kids gradually expressing their love for me. Along with my wife telling me stories about when I’m at work and the kids ask questions about me and express interest in me!!!

One of the best memories for the middle kid was him and I were driving and hitting a deer. For me it was nerve racking and for him it was total excitement. I would prefer not to hit a deer again, but it is the little things I can fine and the kids have fun with. And the best part is day after day, all 3 kids gradually expressing their love for me. Along with my wife telling me stories about when I’m at work and the kids ask questions about me and express interest in me!!!
Fifteen-twenty years will go by in a flash…enjoy these times (as you obviously are) 👍

Our fire pit area on the farm. Mostly recycled items on an old base of a grain bin including old fence posts, corn planter boxes, cement culvert, pallet bar with left over house siding, old fuel barrel for fire wood, Tire rim for fire pit and flower planters, and old milk can with M on it.

Got a side hustle w/Shorewood Liquor, started on Sat. Mgr flat-out said, "You make your own schedule. You show up when you want to work, and you leave when you want to leave. Just mark it down." :shock:

They have fixed shifts for the main workers, so the scrubs like me are just additional help. PERFECT. Plus, the pay is more than I expected. :dance:

When you tell somebody somethin', it depends on what part of the country you're standin' in... as to just how dumb you are.
