    I've had the Mechanix in question for 3-4 years. But, those are strictly my lawnmowing gloves. The cheapo Craftsman "mechanic's style" that I bought have worn completely out...though, not the Craftsman Ultra-Touch that I bought in 2010 for bike riding. Weird, huh?
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    I'm a 'glove for every occasion' guy.

    Cheap leather in three packs from Costco (although they fit worse now than they used to)

    The neoprene ones from Harbor Freight--light ones for simple stuff like painting and staining, heavier ones for dirty jobs like working on the car.

    Walmart cheap mechanic's gloves that have some padding if I think I'm likely to get my knuckles banged.

    Some real carpenter's gloves with the thumb and first finger trimmed so you can hold nails--finally broke down and bought a pair when I was working outside in the cold, nailing something up.

    I can deal with gloves that are each like water balloons filled with a pint of sweat after a job, instead of trying to clean embedded grease, oil, paint and other schmutz... using GoJo, Lava, gasoline, mineral spirits, acetone, denatured alcohol, Brake Kleen, fingernail brushes, etc...

    ...and still showing up for the Monday meeting with hands that look like I never wash them and fingernails that look like my mother never yelled at me for having dirty fingernails.

    For the kitchen, however, I use the thin clear food prep gloves. My son turned me onto these after a few years of being Hot Dog Boy at his uncle's basketball camp, dealing with cases of industrial hotdogs packed in sticky pink clotted hotdog juice glop.

    I now put on these food prep gloves for when I'm handling peppers, onions, garlic, raw fish, raw meat, etc.

    These guys:

    Nothing quite like taking a leak after handling jalapenos without the use of food prep gloves.

    And I guess that in this day and age, you're not allowed to hit em anymore. Students.

    Thanks....I couldn't figure out how to post that directly as a photo. It made me chuckle. I'll have to make note of this: when it comes to the womens, DO NOT wave ciabatta bread and refer to them as Clydesdales.

    Everyone here can't believe what they've read. And I had to google ciabatta.

    Real event, to me unfortunately. I live in a high rise building and obviously elevator is essential feature. I pressed the button and waited at the lobby. Door to one elevator opens and one (not attractive at all) middle aged woman walks out, so I walk in. Now you can guess what was there waiting for me... The problem was, it didn't become apparent until the elevator door was closed and it can't be reopened until the next stop. Even though it took seconds, it felt like hours.

    IOW, not funny.

    If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope he likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    If you feel wimpy and weak, get out and train more, ya wee lassie!
