Bottom line........ it just wasn't worth the hassle and I think that George is nuts for even going down that road in the first place.


I have been called a lot worse LOL.

I will say though about the shirts is, we will only be carrying one color from now on and it will be a lighter universal color (light gray). That way all we have to worry about is sizes. It is impossible to keep stock of anything without having a bunch sitting also. There is absolutely no money in it which isn't why we do it anyway.

Alright guys, on a serious note. Those that want keychains please either pm me or post here in the thread how many you would like so I can get an idea of how many to order. I already received two messages regarding quantities. For our friends across the northern border I am going to see about having them shipped directly to you if the maker will do that for me.

I think you got an x large because I remember thinking it was going to be too big because of how skinny you are LOL. I have a funny feeling too that it was the last XL green but I could be wrong. I will have to check.

George,
We've both been called a lot worse but that wasn't the point I was trying to make. Member MATTS seems to think that site owners should jump through hoops to provide merchandise for their members and that he has the right to be pissed off when his own personal timetable is not being met. That's what I would call unreasonable and my post tried to point out why ventures into merchandise is simply a bad idea.

The initial cost outlay is high and so is the amount of time a site owner must spend to put it all together initially and then deal with the orders that flow in. As you said, there isn't a dime to be made doing this and if the truth were known, the potential to lose money on these items is very high. I'm not into money-losing ventures and that's why we kicked the whole merchandising idea to the curb. My post was not intended to be derogatory George and I think that you already knew that.

I was thinking it was XL also but wasn't sure so wanted to hear what you said lol. It fit exactly how I like my T-shirts, a little loose and a little below my beltline. I don't tuck my shirt so I hate to show my arse when I bend over to tie my shoe LOL. even if you are down to just LARGE's I will take those too, I am sure they will fit also. :D
Also, I would like to get 3 GTtalk keychains.

I am new to this forum but I have to say, don't take this site for grant it. I was looking for a place to get help in the future when my garden tractor breaks down and I know will get help here and that is most likely one the biggest reasons this site lives.

Thank you for the site and the work behind the scene.

George, can you work up a bill for 10? Half for me and the kiddos and a couple for giveaways at the show this summer.

Does it look like you will be doing this periodically or does this look like a one time thing?
