    A sad day, but can’t say we didn’t see it coming. Seems more poignant as I approach the likely end of a big chapter of my life. Thank you Roy.

    Just remember four wheel drive isn’t four wheel stop as Texans learned a few days ago! On another note, I got the second dose of the Moderna Covid vaccine last week and wanted to report back. Definitely had side effects this time. Got the shot at noon and by 7 that night my arm was swollen and very sore, worse than the first time and that took a day or two to come on. That night I had chills and a low grade fever. The next day I felt super fatigued- as bad as the worst I felt when I had cancer. Just absolutely wiped out and no motivation to do much of anything. By the next day, I was back to normal and feeling a lot better. The day after that I got up early and did a medium length trail run. So while intense, the side effects were short lived and certainly worth it in my opinion vs the unknown and possibly much longer lasting side effects from covid itself. Though who knows, maybe I’ll grow a tail in a month or two!

    I was the victim of a flipper once- seemed really interested in the pair, extra measurements and photos and came down from an already great price as the buyer seemed genuinely interested. Next week I saw the pair for sale from my buyer for nearly triple what they paid. Kinda irked me, but once they’re out of my hands, it’s no longer mine and not my call. Good luck if you go for them!

    @chicote we should watch out for each other, that pair went for 80 plus shipping on eBay ~two weeks ago! Photo of the patch from the listing...

    My pair at 125 days. One initial hot soak, and one scrubby bathtub wash at ~120 days. I like to wait longer for the first wash, but wash more frequently after that. Looked like I dismembered a smurf in there. They certainly don’t look this contrasty in person, guess it’s the lighting and the phone camera. I’ve got a small section that’s pretty slubby on the right thigh which I tried to capture- feels almost like a mini PBJ, but only in that one place.

    Lookin’ good! And yes, with the interesting but awkward to access in public inner coin pocket. It’s been a long time since he’s made bottoms in something other than denim, would be cool to see something new in that vein.

    @chicotethat shirt looks great on you! I don’t have any of his shirts (yet) but agree that his bottoms seem almost tailored to me. All the different cuts that I have are very flattering to my body type. @longshanks I was eyeing that pair too, but decided they were too big and I therefore wouldn’t wear them. Here they are with a pair of the SE ducks.

    Picked up a in good shape/minimally worn Liberty CPO from eBay. I need to stop browsing! One of the neck buttons is missing, but otherwise minimal fading and no damage. Had a lot of fuzz on it, so that was kind of annoying. But it might just be one of those fabrics that attracts it. I’ve collected a lot of deer and elk antler sheds hiking over the years, think I will make a replacement button out of that. Seems true to the spirit of the shirt.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    This seemed like the best thread for this nonsense- I got my first dose of the Moderna COVID vaccine today. I am a first responder, which is why I was able to get it so soon despite being a healthy 40 year old. I briefly went back and forth on if I should or not, but with some more research, the science seems sound. I guess I do have some concern about possible long term side effects, but I have the same concerns about COVID itself, and I’d (much) rather get the vaccine than get sick. I am in the US, so it seems like getting sick is sadly the eventual reality. I was hoping for Pfizer over Moderna, as the dose administered is much lower, but oh well. They are .5% away from each other in efficacy. So far only some soreness in the injection area, like with any intramuscular shot. The vaccine is clear in color; I am a cancer survivor and fortunately read up ahead of time on the drugs I was to get. It was still a bit of a shock to see .5l of koolaid red liquid go into my body! I think people expect drugs to be colorless, and it would probably be more difficult to convince people it’s safe if it were black or green or something. Thanks for reading sufu. I’ll update in the next few days. Any questions, please feel free to ask and I’ll get back as I can.

    I did end up winning the BnB’s for the minimum bid. More than I wanted to spend but again, a grail pair for me(seems unlikely I’d ever find a unworn pair in my size again). I’ll post pics upon arrival.

    @chicote I’m going to bid on those BnB. A grail pair for me though a little more $$ than I’d like to spend at the moment. Oh well.

    My pair has been at the usps regional facility without movement for 3+ days. The last 35 miles of shipping have now taken more time than the first 1200. Guess it’s not entirely unusual for usps tracking to not update until the package is delivered. Keeping my fingers crossed that they show up!
