they apparently had all kinds of problems with their site last night....they are very nice on the phone though and they are supposed to have a pair of "stoneman" chukkas saved for me......natural welt and commando soles.....never seen any pics of these or the #8s before.
Thanks for the concern! You're right I was lucky it didn't get my foot!
Here's a picture, its a little hole but wondering if I should try and plug it or just let it be.

Let it be. No one will notice it even if it can be seen. You will know it is there only when you are not focusing on something else and it is simply the character one acquires through living with great shoes.
It is a silly assertion, and I do believe you have adequately captured the silliness.
