I used to think I'd want to wear a brand new pair of socks every day, then I read that Justin Timberlake wears new underwear every day. 

At least he could sell his old drawers on eBay.

Now that you mention it, a new pair of Pointer Overalls every day would be kinda cool.

    Yea, brand new socks feel really good, they are one thing I don't have trouble finding that are U.S. made.

    There's a gun shop near me that sells them at a very reasonable price,

    in fact there's a place a few blocks from it that sells discounted clothing and their socks from Guatemala cost more than U.S. made.

    I doubt their customers have ever set foot in a gun shop.

     

    As to the thread, I'm not sure I'd buy anything ridiculous, course that's a matter of opinion,

    for example I certainly would NOT buy the kind of stuff David Lee Edwards blew his bucks on,

    super expensive cars fake statues replica swords and worst of all, drugs, But to each his own.

      I love my bibs (not Pointers, are they good?);  used to wear them all the time on the rigs.  Now I just have a few pair.  I think the thing I like about 'em the best is being able to unbutton the top side button and scratch anything that needs to be scratched.  I had a pair of striped ones once, but got tired of people asking if I was working "all the live-long day".

            Yeah, a lotta people say they're the best. They're made right here in Bristol TN and they've been making them in the same place there for 100 years now. They had an ad on the radio last summer telling where they get everything that goes into them right down to the thread (Georgia) and it's all 100% made in the USA components. They definitely ain't no Chinamen bibs.

              I sure like to buy US made if I can, but I've never seen Pointers f/ sale.  I guess I've mostly worn Dickies or Carhart;  I *think* the Carharts are made here, at least the duck fabric ones like I used to roughneck/drill in,  but I believe the Dickies I wear now are made in Mexico.

                  I'm a little obsessed w/ socks, long story, but my family always thought it funny.  I've been replacing my regular white socks w/ diabetic style, sure wish I'd discovered them years ago.  Not sure where mine are made, but the pickin's are slim w/ them locally, sometimes I order via Amazon.  Darn things are four bucks/pair f/ the best ones at Wal Mart, but sure are comfortable.

                  I'm w/ you, I can't think of anything ridiculous I'd buy, I'm too frugal and I can't see that totally changing even if I got rich.  Even my new pair of socks ea. day would be almost shamefully decadent, guess I could wash and donate the once-worn pair to a local charity or church or Salvation Army.  I can think of dozens of expensive toys I'd LIKE to have, but I don't think any of them would really make me happy.  If I won enough money, I'd buy a live-water ranch, but I don't consider that ridiculous.

                    A collapsable top hat. Black, of course. 

                     

                    I'll wear it with ratty jeans to the grocery store.

                      Since l will be purchasing a Planet as you know & you spoke of Space- l think l might as well add the Klingon Homeworld with the entire fleet of Klingon Warbirds to my wishlist.
                      Money is no object...right?

                          Build a disaster proof house. Doesn't take all that much money though.

                            LOL, you're lucky you caught that before I saw it.

                            Still don't know why you have to can your bath water first though.

                            And on another note, I've always maintained that it should be called "jarring" and not "canning."

                            http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/waterbath-canning-highacid-foods.html

                             

                            I agree when my mother canned peaches i said ma you not putting the peaches in a can your putting them in a jar. She simply said it called canning because thats what term the processing companies used whene they canned foods. - at the cannery

                            Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                                           I'm not Big John, I'm Four4me, Big John's a friend.

                              If time and money weren't an issue I'd start my own high end clothing and jewerly line. Open a gourmet restaurant. Have a fully customizable auto shop building one of a kind sports cars... Think zebra strips and lepord spots for the paint. And just have fun.
