Thanks for the suggestion to you and all others who have chimed in.
Oddly, this thread has become the only thing I check on the internet daily. It's an interesting thing how you can feel a relationship to a group of people you only know through screenames and pictures of their feet.
How many women have run away screaming or quietly slipped out the back door when you weren't looking? Based on the way you described your relationship with this board, I can see the following scene unfold:
Her: "What are you doing?"
OptoDoc: "Taking pictures of my feet. I've got a bunch of buddies on the internet that I've never met, but we take pictures of our feet to share with each other."
Her: Blank stare.
OptoDoc: Wiping a tear from his eye, "I love those guys."
Her: Continued blank stare, while waiting for the punch line.
OptoDoc: "What? I'm not making this up. Look, see, I have pictures of all my friends on my hard drive."
Her: Look of abject horror when she sees OptoDoc's entire hard drive is filled with pictures of mens' feet.
OptoDoc: "See, this is Cold Iron, he really likes boots. And, Seven Fold, he really likes his shell leeds. And . . . hey, wait, where'd you go?" *sound of the back door slamming as OptoDoc goes back to looking at his pictures of shoes and talking to himself.
