2021 Week 23 – Wool T-Shirts?

Like him or not Guy Fiedi’s Diners Drive-ins and Drives has done a lot to help mom and pop shops all over the country. I try & keep track of the interesting ones I see when I watch the show but after 30+ seasons it’s impossible. An upcoming trip made me search for it and I was happy I found a Map of all the restaurants covered in the show. There are other lists out there. In fact Food Network has one but its not nearly as organized as the one above.

I’m a gear head when it comes to the outdoors and a fan of Marino Wool socks that keep my feet dry and comfortable. A recent gear guide (I forget which one) was promoting Marino Wool T-Shirts and I decided to get one and try it out. Made from a lightweight merino wool blend that wicks sweat and dries quickly the Icebreaker T-Shirt is super comfortable and works as advertised. I plan on adding a few more to my closet this year.

And finally, this YouTube couple got an amazing behind the scenes tour of the Indy 500, it’s a great watch!

This is some pretty crazy stuff.  If it can get implemented into automotive finishes and clothing it will put a BIG dent in the cleaning industry!

Haircuts & T-Shirts

I went to the Sports Themed place near my office for a haircut. The dude did a good job but I was itching like crazy all the way home!

This got me wondering… Why didn’t the whole Flowbee thing take off? I mean it’s such a great idea for people who don’t want to have to run home and take a shower after a haircut… I would gladly pay extra for a barber who can not only cut my hair the way I want it but also make it so I don’t have to deal with a million little pieces of hair on my face/ears/neck!

I always like those logo tees. Here’s a site that has a ton of unique ones (think X-Mas Gift!) I wear a Medium (hint hint).
