Happy Friday Eve boys! Some loooong collars for the day's fare.

The Mrs. is at a friend's dinner party so it's me and the baby this evening. First time she's left the baby since she was born 2.5 months ago. Baby cuddles are certainly a new experience!

Just boarded my flight. Didn't forget to remove my boots before going through the metal detector. Someone behind me asked if we needed to remove our shoes and I didn't wanna explain to them about the metal shank, so I just said these are steel toe boots. Lol!

And I'm the guy, that even though TSA pre-check, certified # and all, has to take off boots no matter what. Gave up wearing Aldens on airplanes, I don't want to mess with it. I now were new balance tennis shoes when flying, easier for me.

I was thinking the same, but decided it would be worth the effort since I gave myself plenty of time. I now keep a shoe horn in my side zippered pocket of my rolling luggage for such events!

Looking great, Savvy. Savor those cuddles; they grew so fast.
Thank you kind sir!! :cheers: Indeed I have heard that.

We saw some friends last week who have a 5 year and 17 month old. The 17 month old was like a grown man compared to my daughter. Crazy how much changes in 15 months!

+!, and before you know it, they have kids of their own....
Nuts, I tell you. I am sure my parents think the same thing. I know my mother can't believe I'm already all grown up.

Visited the Arch a few years ago in my Alden boots and had to get metal-detected. Told the guy I had "a metal shank in my boots" and he wanded my ankles/boots and waved me through after I buzzed. LOL.
