drb, some Walmarts will efficiently replace your watch battery for you (but not all have that jewelry counter anymore).

I'm sure LTC will be along soon to tell us we all violated a US 18 law by using union items while not at work.

with my last allowance (MH don't get much, so added diff out-of-pocket), got a great zip-up, hooded, lined jacket. almost sweatshirt material on outside. warmest, for the size and weight, I've ever owned. alas, never need to wear it now cuz never see temps below freezing.

similar to this, but black and thicker

I'm wearing some of MY Postal Issue socks, as I write this. Got about a dozen pairs left. Should be enough for at least one more year & change, which will make 13. :)

Hannah, I mentioned your 50 socks to my husband and had I thought of that I would have nearly done the same. JOKINGLY he asked if you planned to ebay your socks. Heck NO!

I am envious of your accumulation of socks "free" to you, Hannah. Sock envy.

When a coworker said she could never tell if I was serious, I told her I was always serious. Which was not serious. But, alas, I was serious. As I type I see a box containing most of the nearly 50 pairs of socks I received. Most of them were Wrightsock double layer coolmesh II socks. They averaged a little under $10 with the discount for spending my entire allowance at once.

Hannah, your sense of humor is way over my head - so to be safe I am assuming you could be joking about the socks. I know with all of your children that you said you would be fairly old once you could retire, so buying a ton of socks sounds like you are joking.

I bought a lot of shoes with my own money while carrying. I found them comfortable for a while, but then the support would break down faster than the p.o. shoes. At some point I just stuck with the p.o. shoes for their over all toughness and dr. prescribed arch supports etc. helped with comfort.
