Hey 2018, we've been waiting for you. Welcome.
Today is a great day to visit your local Main Street and get that shopping wrapped up. And if you happen to be in southern Mississippi, there's no place bettered do so than @laurelmercantile.
It's Ho Ho Ho Time.
Our prints are typically 13"x20". But when we saw that @cottonandpine in Montgomery had a hundred and ten year old press Miehle press (only 7 still operated in the US) that could print twice that size, we had to call them up. And here's the result. A big old beautiful flag for The Iodine State, printed up on 100% cotton paper.
It's #cybermonday and it's the best (and last) day of our Christmas sale. All prints, Timbers, and pennants are all sale, and we'll toss in free shipping to boot. Goes until midnight. Theoldtry.com
Up here the rivalry games are played on Thanksgiving morning. Took the girls to watch the boys of Belmont fall 35-16 to Watertown. Now let's eat.
15 years ago I got my Geo Tracker stuck while mudding out at Sardis Lake by before the Egg Bowl. I was 30 minutes late to the game. Today I'm going to the Watertown v. Belmont high school football game with a wife, two kids, a plate of cinnamon rolls, and some great neighbors. Much to be thankful for.
Boston isn't the South. But we sure have been here long enough for it to feel like a part of us. We've been here through victory parades and heart-breaking Marathons. We got married and had two babies and started a business here. So we've made a Massachusetts print. It's based on the first flag of New England. 'Cause when you live here, you realize how close all of the Northeast really is. And no matter what New England town we'll end up in, we'll have this first flag of New England print to proudly hang.
