  1. That is actually a 1966 Conn Model 20J recording bell tuba. To be perfectly accurate, "20J" and "recording bell" is redundant, but only to vintage Conn geeks. And yes, there are in fact two pairs of knee high boots behind the tuba, but they are covered in spider webs. I don't know if the resolution of the photo will show it. I haven't worn them since last winter. @Cali, I have no idea why y'all are so adamant that I wear boots. I used to own a dozen pairs of boots at one time. I am down to four nowadays. Five, if you count a pair of booties that are really nothing more than shoes that com

  2. Absolutely. I figure that at the end of the day if the worst thing anybody can think to say abot me is that I liked to wear high heeled boots - so what?

  3. Curiously enough I was on-line shopping as well, for a pair of nice (not fetishy) boots in my size when I found this site. It's been seven years now...

  4. The Mail on Sunday (UK) today included the following article under the above heading. It was apparently culled from a respectable professional journal, but make of it what you will. 'They have divided fashionistas and feminists for generations, but scientists now claim to have proof that high heels are sexy. Researchers recruited 52 female university students aged 18 to 24 and shot videos of them walking in flat shoes and in their own high heels, varying in height from 8cm to 10cm. Editing software was used to erase their feet so that only the women’s body movements could be a

  7. You both need to give it a try. The only real downside (for you) is you might really like it. I know I do, specially with short shorts, but only in warm weather.

  8. If you’ll take a fiddle I’ll join in. That is my one hobby that definitely suffered in 2020. I haven't touched the instrument since the summer video project. I had no idea how low motivation can be when there is nobody to jam with. Never say never, boots and shorts are now well within my comfort zone:

  9. I do to, to be honest. Jeans, boots and jumper has always been my look - and I like it all the better with tall boots and heels. Or ankle boots and heels, which seems to me like sportier, more daring versions of my usual hiking boots.

  12. I know that you know that I know that you know that I know. . . you're messing with me. Howevahh. . . I will not wear knee high boots with shorts. Ain't gonna happen. 🤣🤣🤣 I also have a 1957 Conn 10M tenor saxophone. It's a honey. I think amongst several of us on this site, we could probably make a pretty sweet high heeled jam band.

  13. I just see freedom of speech, thought and asociation being surrendered uncritically, and Twitter mobs becoming the de facto editors of what was once a free press. While other aspects of society might suggest a bright future, it's hard for me to be optimistic given what I see of these fundamentals. The inhabitants of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World were generally happy, taking their Soma, praising his Fordship, and it was only the reader - standing outside, looking in - who grasped that all was not well.

  14. My situation is far from unique, but perhaps it is interesting. I have the opportunity to interact with young people on a regular basis, mainly because my 21 year old son often brings friends over to work on cars, simply because I have the facilities to do so, and all are welcome from the clean-cut to the rough-looking folks, as long as they put everything back when they're done. I dunno, maybe it's because I'm from a small town. Maybe it's because I'm from Iowa. Maybe it's because I'm an old fart who can coax rusted fasteners apart while wearing high heels, but I just don't feel the future is

  16. “Youth is wasted on the young.” I make it a goal to stay as youthful in spirit as possible as I age in discernment and instinct. I remember that feeling of youthful stubbornness and probably still exercise it more than I realize. I’ll find out I am wrong on my own experience, rather than heeding the advice of others. Sometimes people cannot be convinced by reason or argument. Then, once experienced, I flip into a stubborn old coot with limited tolerance of the input of self proclaimed experts that have never actually experienced what they are talking about. It’s no wonder

  20. @mlroseplant I'm just playing with you. We all have gaps or single minded heels., like boots-only @Shyheels. When you have over 50 pairs and no place to wear them (staying home) some do gather cobwebs.

  21. As a husband and a father, having raised a son and two daughters, I’ve been there, done that. While teaching our son how to be a man, the upbringing of the girls rested mainly with my wife. My wife was, to me, the most feminine female person ever to walk the earth. Mannerisms, attitude, beauty creams, clothing, colors, fashions and accessories, jewelry, etc. the whole nine yards. A true “Southern Belle. She knew it all. And, she thoroughly taught our girls everything very well. Shoes were a fashion accessory or be coordinated with the handbag and dress. The dresses must be appropriate

  22. As I look back over the years to my youth, I don’t remember being as deadly certain that my opinions were so absolutely correct to a point where I wouldn’t even entertain a thought that I could be wrong or that there might be more more than one solution or way to solve a problem. I do know for a fact that with young people these days, anyone voicing an alternative or opposing view will likely get them shot . It’s like there is no room for discussion.

  23. It is an age-old proble - Pliny and Socrates were bemoaning this back in their day. But now we have social media to contend with, where the lightest weight of "news" stories - not even news at all - can become international headlines, thanks to to Twitter mobs; where "outrage" is the noblest of human virtues, and "fact" becomes whatever gains the most likes or re-tweets.

  24. I feel that as I get older I understand crazy old coots now. You now have decades of life experience to see through the bullshit and yet when you try to tell people about it they look at you as if you're crazy. This truly explains why life is a mess and things keep on repeating themselves. The old know better, but are too old to capitalize on it, the young are able to capitalize on things, know jack shit, but they think they know better.

  26. I quite liked the tall boots that girls were allowed to wear right back when I was a kid - heeled or no, didn't make much difference to me, I wanted a pair, although high-heeled boots had the added lustre of the forbidden, or rather, the heels emphasised the forbidden aspect of wearing tall boots. I have several pair of knee and otk boots with standard heels and I like them a lot. Lately my go-to pair have been heavy grey suede otk boots with 3.5" cuban heels. I like their style and my own sense of rule-breaking when I wear them
