    Thank you!!!!
    I will always remember this. So, next time my husband wants to throw out an old pair of jeans that I know he wore for some reason, I shall keep it; probably start a drawer for those. Already have two pair he thought I threw away because he could no longer fit in them, I have them in a bottom dresser drawer. One pair was cut with a exacto knife (he builds model airplanes) and the other just wore out in the butt....his favorite pair. :thumbup: :thumbup:
