Anonymous: It is nice to hear that someone has followed my blog for years! Yes, I am still using the Chabad tallis my wife gave me when we got married.

Here is an update of where I stand today on this issue:

After those postings last year, I got my wife's permission to buy a new tallis on the condition that she would hold onto it and give it to me at a time she felt was meaningful to her. ....I am still waiting for that time and will remind her again this evening :)
