    He's on vaca and didn't take us!

    I guess we'll have to talk about that 'uncle' thingy when he gets back!

    I'm not feeling it! :nest:

    These have had a few polishes of alternating red and blue cream and perhaps a coat or two of neutral. And an application of black cream along seams and stitching. Not a lot of extra effect added. G&Gs tend to patina up pretty quickly on their own. I imagine I've not worn these shoes more than ten times total.

    As for the toes - :slapfight: They could be a bit more mirrored but I'm not obsessed about it.

    As for the knots - just happened that way - didn't give it a second thought. Perhaps I should go to shoe tying class? :embar:

    You're tying a Grandma knot, you should be tying a reef knot. Under over, over under, brother!

    Good Lord..........how have I managed to survive all these years??????

    It's a mystery.

    It's a wonder that the captains of industry haven't run me out of business and driven me to poverty over my improperly tied shoes. :embar:
