Thanks, yes Five Fabulous kids! Three out of the house (Thank Goodness!, college and such...) just two left at home, ready for some grandbabies, but my children are being VERY slow in producing them..lol! They think college and so forth is more important right now :) I also wanted to let you know that alloy.com sells pants (womens) up to 37inch inseam, I did not see that website mentioned anywhere. Have a most wonderful day!
Thanks-jsut beginning car seach but still inlove wiht my '05 dodge magnum-most comfortable car I have ever owned. When I was younger doing 250-300 miles a week I had a totally custom bike. that was 30 years ago when in law school-my '64 rambler was worth $500 and when I put the bike on its' rack it more than quadrupled the value of the car :)
Now I do about 50-90 miles a week and use an off the rack bike that fits good for my riding style now. I do stationery at the gym when weather is bad or pollution bad here in Bham. A cool site-thanks.
Hello - Thank you for the warm welcome! It's great to be in Atlanta. I actually have a women's shoe store for larger size feet (11-14) opening at Northlake Mall (4800 Briarcliff Rd, ATL 30345) tomorrow (June 9, 2012)! It's called Elevenup Shoes! Please pass the word around!
Well I test drove a Accord Coupe and it was ok, pretty good leg room with a little bit of rubbing on my right leg. I am going to sit in and srive the Mini Cooper S Clubman and see if it's true that its a good car for very tall men.
You'd be amazed at some of the band aid fixes I've seen over the years, and what goes on.... I have had to unstick someone from a toilet once. She was large and when she flushed, it vacumed her to the seat... I had to remove a seat once because a kid got struck underneath and his arm was turning blue... Once, I had a lav faucet written up as INOP, what I found was a tampon that was inserted to stop a slight drip that must have been annoying to the lady on the seat. What makes flying so safe is that we keep the acceptable level of what we will accept as broken, and still fly with it, at a very low level. Everything fixed, every minute, if possible....But things break during the day and we fix it at the end of the night. Some of the things we see are crazy though.
Oh, how interesting. I'm surprised I haven't seen you around. 6'11" definitely stands out ;) I work in Sandy Springs and spend most of my time in this area.
Congratulations on getting married, all the best to you and your wife!
Thanks for the comment! Yep, I played middle blocker, and I get the basketball question all the time! I love that this tallstreetjournal exists, because it's nice to see/hear about people who see the world in a similar perspective.
Cheyenne - thanks for recommending me to Georgia Menukas. She liked my family, but we are now spread out between Vermont, Chicago and San Diego so that would make filming us together difficult. I'd like to talk with you about ways to connect people on this site with some of the things I carry in my store. What is the best way to do that? I need to run down to the kitchen and cook dinner now and I hope to talk to you soon. - Paul
Thanks for the welcome to Tall Street. Actually, I am the youngest of all my siblings by nearly ten years, so even though I ended up being nearly a foot taller than anyone else in my immediate family, it was almost as if nobody noticed it. Kinda like how if someone gets a Saint Bernard puppy and has it from when it is little they never notice how big it really is, you know? As for strangers seeing us in town, I think they just figured I was an unrelated family friend. Just the other day at the local cofee shop where my dad and I frequently meet up, the girl behind the counter asked me who the little old man I always have coffee with is! It was pretty funny.
