Well Traveled and Thrifty

To look at Gary's t-shirts you'd think he was well traveled. Gary wears t-shirts all the time and they wear out quickly. We were happy to find lots of thrift stores with a good selection of t-shirts. For a dollar or two one can get some really colorful t-shirts, many of which have never been worn. This Ron Jon t-shirt probably cost a pretty penny new. Gary used to surf so he particularly likes this one.

We did splurge and purchase this t-shirt from Aguila Seafood where we got all of our seafood while we were in Alabama and also brought an ice chest full back home.

See what I mean by well traveled; you'd think we just got back from the Cayman Islands. We tried finding t-shirts in this area but they cannot be found. Folks don't tend to wear t-shirts in this neck of the woods I guess.

The Barque Eagle, also known as America's Tall Ship, is a Coast Guard training ship and the only square rigger in government service. The ship was built in Germany in 1936 and was taken as war reparation after World War II.

Gary and I both love palm trees so this happy hour shirt was a must have. Many of these t-shirts are made of thick material and several are sewn well with flat fell seams. I mentioned the seams to Gary and he said what's that. Then he noticed how well made they were.

A construction shirt but it's from Palm Beach Florida so it was a keeper. Gary used to live near Palm Beach as a child where he learned to love the palm trees.

A really nice shirt from Hawaii celebrating the gecko. Who doesn't like a gecko; they eat bugs. You know any tropical location is going to have bugs, we be glad for the gecko. Hawaii has a law where pet geckos can be turned in rather than be released into the wild. There are some gecko species that are harmful to other wildlife. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. How fun to have a gallery of tee shirt designs...and I'd say Gary is definitely a world traveler...on his chest!

    1. Hi Barbara, thanks, Gary and I enjoy reading all the sayings on other folks t shirts at the farmer's market in the summer.

  2. We both wear a lot of t-shirts here too. And himself's are often tributes to his travelling life. A well made t-shirt is becoming rare though. And welcome.

    1. Hi Sue, thanks, you are so correct about the well made part, most are very cheaply made but some are not, those last so much longer and hold up to multiple washings.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
