I guess the shirts didn't work out -- maybe he never could perfect that rabbit. Anyway, he seems to have switched to new goals, because he is now doing sailing charters! Sounds fun...maybe someday I'll make it down there and try one out.
Strangely enough, I ran into him in Chicago last year -- I was still living here (near Detroit), and he was already living in Florida, but we both happened to be shoe-shopping in Chicago's downtown Nordstroms at the exact same time! Small world.
