    Suits you, Sir, I'm sure, but this tidbit of info is a bit more than I'd like to handle. Besides, dried-up reptiles are a clear sign of...gentlemanly mishaps of some kind. Have you tried protecting your reptile with, say, a cover of some sorts?

    Awesome. Added to my dictionary.

    Gentlemanly mishap (ˈjentlmənlē ˈmisˌhap)-- an illness that has a significant probability of transmission between humans by means of human sexual behavior.

    ex. "Ted's a cool dude, but is reputed to have had a few gentlemanly mishaps. At least that's what his ex is telling everyone."

    YOU JUST REMINDED ME! I have an update, here are my two blisters as of a few days ago. They are still gross, just not as bad. They don't hurt, either.

    Back on topic Chaps & I can't remember whether or not I posted these.
    Recent addition - EG 'Oakdale' in Bronze Antique on the 82 Last. I could not get anything in my size in Midnight and did not want another pair of shoes in Brown.
    I will try and take some decent pics with a real Camera, as cell pics do not accurately represent the uniqueness of the color.

    1930's Kangaroo Skin Paddock Boots by Rand. NOS. Wearable size (with a roomy toe-box, which is a BIG plus for 30's shoes, which are often much more narrowly lasted).

    The kangaroo skin makes for a very lightweight, yet extremely durable boot. If you look at 1930's shoes that have survived dryness, the Kangaroo ones did so much better. Most Calf ones are cracked all the way through.
