Guys,

I posted something similar to this on the viberg thread yesterday on my C-2's. I love it when I see pristine shell that others post on this site but for me, I prefer aged shell. As such, as much as I love my Ealdwine Cigar Indy's, I need to get some mileage on them. Working from home during the pandemic makes that especially challenging. As such, these have just been added to my dog walking rotation......

Here's the full complement of my dog walking rotation. The 2's are a recent addition but the Black & Tan scouts have been there for about a month. No shine or wiping. And I love the way they look....

Who knows, even with sweats I may be in the hunt for the best dressed dog walker award in Wilkins Township.

These look freaking fantastic though. The variation is phenomenal and I'd be happy if they developed at a slower pace.

Sweet lordy! More power to ya, but I haven't even managed to lace mine up yet. I just get them out of the box for a few minutes, stare at them, then put them back in the plastic and back in the box. Takes me forever to decide to put the first rolls in brand new shell, they just look so dang good new!

So the Black and Tan Indy boots from our dear friends at Ealdwine were to be delivered yesterday.....they were at the local UPS hub yesterday morning....now they show "In Transit" with no ETA, sometimes UPS just ticks me off. Did they get put back on a truck to go somewhere else? Did they get lost in the hub? Even UPS can't tell me, they are just in the ozone somewhere. So a teaser pix

It's holiday season. I purchased something from Brooks Brothers to ship to a family member in the Boston area. Brooks Brothers main online/shipping warehouse is only a few miles from the "Windsor Locks, CT" pick up point which is also less than 150 miles from Brookline, MA which is the destination. Even if you say the item had to go to the FedEx hub in NJ (at the airport), it should not have then gone to the FedEx hub in TN (at the airport), and then to the FedEx hub in East Boston (at the airport). This was a mistake and incorrectly routed.

The package travelled 2546 miles although it was originally only 150 miles from its destination.

I know they are, and once the COVID vaccine starts shipping it will be worse, but they were 12 miles from my house, at the hub, yesterday.....I mean how hard is it to say "OH, these should go on a local truck for delivery today" God only knows where they are right now, UPS certainly doesn't.
