    Both @Roycru and I had a tan version with the gum lite sole. The real issue I had was that the tongue was floppy, and not stitched on one side. The shoe was unstructured and clumsy altogether, and was donated immediately.

    Great pick up on the heel issue with Sea Island @jet-stream . Wore a pair last night for a party at our home, and I kept adjusting the shoes due to its angle into my Achilles.

    Mine works! But I have the smaller, homeowner version of gas snowblower. Good to about 6 inches of snow, so I have to snowblower the drive/walks a couple of times in a storm like this. Just got in from round 1 and it's still snowing, but not as bad. BTW- HM's are too slippery on snow covered concrete to do the job, went back to the lug Indy's.

    I left stabilized gas in the blower all off season... can’t really drain it well, so I am going to add fresh gas and stabilizer to it. I have a a 24inch toro

    That's the kind of blower I have, the thing to keep on hand is a product called Sea-Foam. It's a fuel additive that will clean the crap out of any gasoline engine/carb or reeds on 2-cycle. Stuff is awesome! I once left gas in a mower for 2 seasons, put a bottle of sea-foam in, sprayed some carb cleaner in the carb and the sucker started and ran like it was on steroids.

    Anyone here ever ordered trousers from a company named Hertling in NY? Got an email with a pair of Donegal Trousers with side tabs that look really interesting. Not exactly inexpensive, but I would pay that amount for nice Tweed, but not Denim :)

    Watching the weather channel on TV, I hope our brethren in St. Louis are ok, they are making out like MO is snowed in and cut off from civilization.

    I have sea foam. How much should I put in the tank with the new gas?

    I think I got the same email. Is it sad that my gut it to reject that price, but have no problems doubling it for shell?

    Not a whole lot, if it's in the little SeaFoam bottle, maybe 1/3? It won't hurt the engine, but it will run hot!
    Make sure oil level is good as well. Happy Snow Throwing!

    Yes, about a 1/3 of the bottle should clean out damn near everything.

    Black shell park avenues and a pickup from our favorite eBay seller.

    Some guy wore the fifth avenues once and returned them - I feel quite lucky to have purchased them in such a good state. Better than most firsts I've seen in bourbon. IMG_20190112_111043.jpeg IMG_20190111_201456.jpeg
