Remember John the bartender, of Jake-and-John Australian adventures fame?
He's long gone from the Sandbar, having moved away to Houston with his college sweetheart Natalie, who he married almost two years ago.
Recently, Natalie shared this with us:
I must confess, I was packing our closet up as we get ready to move and made a pile of John's clothes that *might* be ready to go to t-shirt heaven. His frayed and paint-splashed Sandbar tee ("I was PAINTING the sandbar!") might've been in the mix… because seriously, in its current state, it's probably not street legal. When he saw it in the purgatory pile, you would've thought he was ready to divorce me. HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?!?!? GET THAT OUT OF THERE! …. Whoops. Guess I won't be making wardrobe suggestions anymore!
Sandbar shirts are important wardrobe pieces! And often, they are sentimental souvenirs of a previous life.
I was amused with the picture of the shirt Natalie sent, mostly because the shirt isn't in nearly as bad of shape as I expected.
See those little paint spots on the front? Heck, Dave wears shirts worse than this to work sometimes!
However…we can certainly appreciate the idea that someone has too many T-shirts for their closet. Coming soon, a little contest called "how many Sandbar shirts does Dave have." Kind of like guessing how many jelly beans are in the jar.
I should take a picture of the original T that Peach and Ted gave me the first night I worked… It is only 16 or 17 years old. There are more holes in it than material holding it together… Meg just loves it when i wear it to work on the house!
