Good man Mr.B...

Recent Happy quote.... "Thanks for making me buy yet again another suit... Next time I wear it, you'll have to adjust the tie... As I'm going to be lying down with my hands folded..."

Hey... There's a blue and white Sebago AND a traditional grey Toppy in there!

When I was a young punk rebel, I had a red and green pair.... The starboard green and port red wore out.... The other two were canned new...

I have tennis and deck shoes in many colors. I think we know who does my shopping. In dressier shoes quite a few colors as well. Choosing what to wear is easy for me, it's done for me. I have not purchased an item of clothing alone since we've been married. I used to hate shopping for clothes. Actually she took me clothes shopping on our second day together. Felt correctly that I really needed some casual clothes.

Mr. B...

That's a KEEPER! Course, she was anyway... being funny and smart 'n all...

We need all the help we can get in that department.... Continue the smoke and mirrors with all of the other things she "thinks we know"

Running shoes, Vibram (black with toes - crazy, but serve as my dress shoes and wet shoes), flip-flops. Done.

Re: How Many Pairs of Shoes do you Carry Aboard?

I'm pretty low on shoes right now. I lost 2 pairs of flip flops when I anchored the dinghy too close while surfing, I found 2 rights and no lefts.
The day before yesterday I was walking towards the marina from the bus stop and saw an ancient man using a walker and with a bandage on his foot, shoeless. I gave him my shoes and walked the rest of the way barefoot.

I picked up a hitch hiker once who had one shoe. I asked him how he lost a shoe, he said "I didn't. I found one!"
