    She's right - no loafers, not enough boots (a chocolate brown suede chukka would be a nice addition) and you could do with a pair of dark brown wingtips as well :)

    Time is a flat circle.

    She's right. The circle isn't complete.

    Hi deignesicht

    And you have put all your shoe trees in! I just love tripping over mine in the base of the wardrobe. There is actually no good way to stand on top of a shoe tree
    I also agree the full circle with the other shoe in would have been the go for impact. If you are an amputee of course I offer my apologies and see the semi circle as complete in a politically correct sort of way. Also if you are transgender and have not put out the sleeker toed shoes with heel that complete the circle and this is the problem with the wife, then again pie r squared it is.
    All look nice but a lot there that look a bit same same. Perhaps it is the birdseye view doing that. A boot or two, A full brogue for the country and patent leather for tripping the light fandango, whatever that is would be it for me.
    You are a lucky man to have a wife that lets you put the shoes in a semi-circle in the lounge. One pair left by the sofa and I get the teapot
    Go well
    Brendon

    thankou
    but only building on someone elses astute observation of the other shoe missing. Credit goes there I'm afraid. I dare not try and be dryer than the legendary Australian wit. I have tried on past occasions to ascend the summit many a time only to come up short. The words are now sliding off this oily page. aaah there's the sun, I had lost it for a while.

    I'm looking to sell my carminas in burgundy cordovan - they just don't fit my feet right. I'll post them on the marketplace over the next couple of days but please PM me if you're interested.

    Shoes are much cheape if you only need the right one - I find the left quite expensive

    Sneakerboy is having a sale again - before the site went down I saw CPs for $130-150, but basically everything is on sale for ridiculous prices.

    No, I must have been on the floor above or higher. I remember the women's legal service though. Some serious locks on their door.

    You would have loved the mismatched pair of Cleverleys I saw in the op shop last weekend. One shoe was well wider than the other. I returned them thinking they'd be useless, but all along I could have sold them to you!
