This is a GREAT story. Keith has LOVED his leather jacket. Ever since he bought it, he's faithfully put mink oil and once in awhile water repellent on it. He mentioned many years ago that he needed to start looking for a new jacket. He looked and looked, but NOTHING came close to this Members Only jacket. We even had a tailor fix his jacket. A few weeks ago when he was starting to feel better, I asked if he thought he felt up to a little shopping trip to look for a new jacket. We drove to 4 stores and that was all he could handle. I told him when we got home I'd go on line and see what I could find. In no time I found the Members Only site with all their new line of jackets. Another site came up - Vintage 80's Leather Jackets...!!!! sure enough I found jackets EXACTLY like the one he was wearing. Took about a 1/2 hour to fine one in his size, only worn twice, and for 1/3 the cost of his orig. jacket! I asked him how long he had that old jacket. He thought awhile and said, I think maybe 20 years.. WELL, it was more like 30 years.Ha. To Keith's credit, he really takes care of his leather coats. We bought this jacket and it came 6 days later. It was llike Christmas for Keith. He was smiling from ear to ear. It gave me GREAT JOY to see him with another jacket EXACTLY like the one he had. We joke that at 95 years old, we'll have to start looking for another one! He is truly a HAPPY CAMPER:)
Back on March 11th, Keith and I made our regular trip to Albertus PA to start the RV which is in storage. We discovered that it wasn't much further to go visit our dear old friends in Quakertown, Pa. Keith and Terry go WAY back and Jackie (Candy) and I have been friends since they got married a few years after we did. Oh, it was so good to see them again.
