    That's your pose, not mine.

    I'm just a shoemaker. Never claimed to be anything else.

    It was over, dead and buried for 4 days. Really unnecessary to take the effort to resurrect.

    :fonz: Thank you.

    He wasn't even involved in the original disagreement.

    I take some consolation, however, in the knowledge that I'm at least bright enough to know how to spell "bright."

    I really wonder how long that mystery stash of antique reindeer hides will last. I wager one hide is enough for three or two pairs. Does anyone have a link to the old articles with a mention of hide count?

    There's more in the waters. They just have to keep dredging it up.

    How would one be able to tell if their pair was made using modern leather or the actual supply from the shipwreck?

    The reindeer hide has a different sweeter scent, at least when new. Also Cleverly gives a card documenting the origin.
