Ha! Yes it is. On Thursday's I actually treat myself to an order of truffle fries and a dirty martini after work at the Captial Grill. While at the bar, someone actually complimented me on my shoes. Sadly it was a guy but hey, I'll take shoe compliments from wherever they come.

I really do miss working in downtown. We're wfh pretty much indefinitely, and there's not a ton of reason to dress up in sq Hill. Also the view from my old 25th floor office was especially gorgeous.

Yeah, I think in our rush to embrace WFH, we all took a lot of little things for granted. I am no where near the 25th, but I've got a pretty cool view and today, in addition to my normal CG/truffle fries/dirty martini, during lunch I hung out in Market Square where they had the Farmers Market and other vendors set up. Got to sample some of my favorite vodke, Boyd & Blair made from potatoes. I go in the office on Mondays and Thursdays. Not because I have to but after my pooch passed, I simply needed to get out of the house. I also get to the company fitness center. Just a lot of little things I took for granted that I now appreciate much more. Could just be me becoming an old fart but regardless, I ain't complaining. Just enjoying the little things.

Sorry for the brain dump guys. Back to our regular programming.......

Yes they are! Personally, I would’ve preferred all eyelets for this particular makeup, but I still like it a lot! Thank you!
Same! I guess their previous run was all eyelets and they received feedback that specified otherwise was preferred. I'm an all eyelets person from a looks perspective.

A good choice, however either would have done yeoman duty :)

No one has ask,,how many years of marital bliss???
It was actually her birthday, and I think the anniversary well wishes came from @mreams99 commenting that it was his anniversary. Wires crossed, but no harm at all. Now, the answer to the burning question is I have been married 44 years. Yes, I am the victim of being a child groom married off by gypsy parents after losing an election bet. And, yes, the meal was quite good.

Not sure if word has been passed, but ShoeMart has the unlined LHS in different colors of Chromexcel.

Van last, etc. Ridiculously comfortable!
