    Don't be sad, that's the price of living la vida loca. A life fully lived is easily worth a pair of shoes. I am in a good mood now, because you reminded me that I haven't eaten oysters yet this year. So I just did, with nice glass of Weissburgunder. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Those look just like the new line from Gordon Rush. "Babylon," scratched leather lace-up, hand-detailed frayed canvas. Keeps yours or buy new at Nordstrom for $150.

    Hello to all so long it;s been, a news I have, but not so pleasant.

    At the beer garden on Wednesday late, a bad night I had as a conversation mixed badly with drinking. A nationalist with shaved head, did not like the open heart I displayed, and decided to make the point physical. Out the back I slipped , to preserve the face which, cannot afford a smashing. Too much to drink dizzy I wandered on, stopping at 1 place for dancing, where you can pay a woman 10$ for 1 song (which I did not). A corona I did have, which on top of thoese earlier, proved too much for my holding.

    Woke the next day fully dressed, inside the bed alone but without 1 shoe. Today I did find, in a poor state, within an ally behind #2 bar.It's history since our departure, I can only imagine...

    Everyone should have one pair of distressed shoes at their disposal.

    Thank you,for all your suggestions. I put they right away in the trees, to protect from more creasing. These are Church's (a Trad brand),and if I lose them, I will only have 2 pair of shoes left. I tried to make a repair, with some cellophane tape.Do they look, better to your eye? [​IMG] Maybe first I should polish the exposed parts?
