Sun Island Jamaica – Tee Shirt Memories t

A friend of Sun Island Jamaica tee shirts was listening to a bunch of friends talk about their tee shirt memories. You know the kind?

Those favorite tee-shirts that you can’t bring to throw out because somehow over the years they have grown into your life and as many memories are attached to that almost cotton rag to clean house with, as that box of family photos you take time to go through every so often to take a look at great-aunt Pada, the one that cousin Din Din looks so much like. Now, the same can’t be said for a tee shirt, who looks like one of your old tee shirts? No one. However they seem to hang in there becoming part of your life.

To cheer herself on the innumerable cold, wet, rainy days she would wear it under her grey business suit and feel bright and sunny all day. Where did this tee shirt come from? You guessed, it was a Sun Island Jamaica tee shirt.
