What to do with old JPFO shirts?

These were among the few leftover items JPFO sent me in the year before the organization died.* They’re “vintage” but still new. What should I do with them? “Raise Your Hand” shirts: T-shirt, large; hoodless sweatshirt, small. Battle of Athens 50-year commemorative shirt: small (two-sided design with more info about the battle on the back) “Life Preserver” shirts: small (two-sided design with list of genocides on the back) I also have a few belt buckles & such that may emerge as I gradually rescue the house from construction chaos. Problem is that the shirts are all smalls, except for the…

    At least I think I did. Hope I did. It’s a very slow-moving bullet, however. It’s a government bullet, and it might still be out there waiting to strike.

But at the time (1970s, maybe earlier) it was an…

  • Clean house, clean brain

    Danm, that felt great. I’ve just sat down to rest after 24 hours of mad housework. I cleared about half the construction disarray, then scrubbed, swept and dusted. (Okay, I got a few hours sleep in there, too; but it was still a marathon.) You have no idea how feeeelthy a house can get after six weeks of drywalling (even with all the work being done in a back room) and an even longer time of cutting up 2x4s, shims, and trim with a chop saw that has no good place to operate. The saw’s been in the living room…
