"To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under the sun. A time to be born and a time to die;..." (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8) Which would mean that for each and every beloved LV, there is a time for it to be gently laid to rest, ritually reduced to ashes, set upon an ice floe... whatever your belief system suggests to you is best. I just suggest that LV's like this one be lovingly removed from circulation! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120212069100&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1123 I mean, how painful is that to look at! Please, put it out of its misery.
