This is a milestone… this pic here is my 13,000 post!  I wanted to take a moment to thank all of my followers out there who have made doing this blog so much fun!  I appreciate each and every one of you and I consider you all friends - so thank you! :)
Completely out of left field here… but check this out!  I have always been a big fan of the Original Penguin sports shirt (shit, Dean Martin used to wear ‘em!) and I was perusing the wares online when I came across this vintage bowling shirt - The King Penguin - complete with the embroidered penguin rearing back to pick up a spare!  Now I need to add one of these on my wants list… okay back to work.
