Did I tell you, Menswear ? – I meant Men’s Underwear! 

Nothing like a bunch of free men’s underwear to make people want to donate!

 (Bwahahaha!) 

Now, that my cover’s blown – there goes my comedy career.

I swear Jim!  You’ll use any excuse to show your modeling pics!  You forgot the best one!

 

 

 

 

Not to confuse anyone…you can use the gift certificate toward anything we offer, not just underwear.  We were just kidding around.  But the underwear model is Jim!  winker

 Ge’Lena and Jim,

Wow! These are quite the modeling pics!! To quote the line in the movie When Harry Met Sally….”I’ll have what she’s having” and  I won’t elaborate any further! )laughing

Awesome promotion on Men’s Underwear!

Kami

 

My sweet golden Mackenzie.  She became my angel on Dec 29, 2010 at the age of 8 1/2  although she was always my angel from the time we brought her home.  She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Sept 2009 and officially became a tripawd (front leg) on Nov 5, 2009.  She will be forever in my heart and now she's running free with all of our other tripawd heroes.  I love you Mackenzie!

René is rolling on the floor laughing. No, really. laughing

But seriously, if anyone is in the market for some fine new threads, they could get a free fresh supply of some mighty fine briefs. They’d go great with etgayle’s socks!

Holly joined the world of tripawds on 12/29/2009. She has a big little sister, Zuzu, who idolizes Holly and tries to make all of her toys into tripawds in Holly's honor. And she's enjoying life one hop at a time!

said to myself “who is that?  I don’t know who that is?” 

 

Wow!  So, I’m not the only one that says that when my name is mentioned!  And then everyone is so nice to spell it correctly!  An apostrope wasn’t enough for my parents –  “Oh, what hell – let’s throw in a capital “L” !”.

 

Fortis’s Dad – Don’t be messing up my sexy male model post!  I know your real name…don’t make me write it!  

 

How about some Italian Midi Briefs, girls!???  They come in black, white and grey! OO-LA-LA!

AAAAHHAA!!! there are so many comments rattling around in my mostly vacant brain – I’m (almost) afraid to put them out there !! little-devil

Ge’Lena … your comedy career is safe … your “Tripawds face” will always be CometDog… who is, by the way, very funny. 

I wanted to say something about having to buy the briefs in order to get the model – but then y’all went and “revealed” that it was Jim – and we all know that Jim is a happily attached man …. so …. yeah ….. I guess I’m going back to “Plentyoffish.com” … (sigh) winker

(BTW – what a great idea !!)
