Saying Good-bye to a Sentimental Rag

I threw this t-shirt away this weekend. I put it on to help my husband work in the yard. I mean, isn't that what you are supposed to do: find your oldest, grungiest t-shirt to work in the yard so you can get all kinds of dirt and grime on it without guilt? My hubby took one look at me and said, "you need to throw that shirt away." I realize I should have gotten rid of it a LONNNG time ago, but as I've posted before, I am one of those crazy people who can't throw away anything that has any kind of sentimentality attached to it. I graduated from John Brown University in 1993. This t-shirt was purchased for me at my Senior Banquet by my date. I have literally worn it to pieces. I am forced to throw it away, because it has holes in it. What a sad day!

So sorry, I still have some alma mater shirts! I graduated in '91. I just have them put away for sentimental reasons--not wearing them anymore. I went to the site you mentioned. I will pray for her family.

Awww! :^(

I just convinced Shawn about a year ago to get rid of one that he had had since back then.

I don't think I have any left either ... maybe my orientation shirt tucked away somewhere, maybe. :)

I have several shirts I have "worn to pieces". I just keep wearing them though!

OOOO..I have some that need tossing...but I just can't do it. It's like they are a part of a past I loved. I know it is silly...
