what do you do with old jeans?

Brooke has often told me over the almost two decades of being togegther, "You can't go through life wearing only a t-shirt and a pair of jeans." Yep, I like wearing jeans. And I've done my best to prove my wife wrong... although it didn't work out totally.

But it's simple. I don't have to worry about matching. And they're durable???I can be rough on clothes. I've learned how to make them last a long time (ie. don't wash them too often, etc.). But I've a got a couple pairs that are starting to wear out in the knees. But I'm cheap. I don't want to buy another pair if I don't have to. It just kills me to think about getting rid of them when they still could have some life in them if it weren't for the damn knees. So, I need your ideas on a) creative ways to recycle old worn out jeans (it's not like I can donate them to someone when they're in this bad of shape... and re-using them in some way would make me feel a little better about tossing in the towel) or b) tips on repairing blown out knees on jeans. I would appreciate your help... and Brooke will too. :)
