  1. Sure wish I had your nice legs buddy. D
  2. I found these ankle boots in the local thrift store today. I was there looking for some women's jeans that might fit tighter, found a pair but there is no dressing room so won't know how the fit until I get home. These boots were waiting for me though, I wish they had pointed toes but oh well. I do love the block heels, they fit perfectly (for once), and are super easy to walk in. They look like leather, but I don't think they are. That's OK, can't complain for $20. I will enjoy them in vegas this weekend, hopefully the women's levis will fit properly. Finally figured out how to convert men's waist sizes to women's, so I guess I wear women's size 11-12 jeans. The last picture is of me waiting at the post office to inquire about a lost package, two of the postal workers complimented me, so I will consider this purchase a success.
  3. I would really love to try leggings, but have short "chicken legs". Was thinking about some of those athletic leggings also, even though I'm no athlete...
  4. Sorry to hear that Pumped, they grew up in different times for sure. Don't know how my Mom would have reacted. I'm sure she wouldn't have criticized me, but there would have been plenty of chatter between her and my other siblings for sure
  5. Message recieved for sure! The picture just shows a little bit of the truck and it looks rust free and in great shape. Sorry it is rusty and needs transmission work, really loved that vintage of Fords.
  6. Wish your Dad could have spoken to my better half.. 101, amazing! My Mom made it to 90, still driving, before the wheels started coming off the cart. I'm thankful she passed just before the damn pandemic hit. She never knew about my heels, but I'm better she would have "accepted" them.
  7. Great heels/outfit, good choice for driving that nice old F150! Hmmm, sounds very familiar to me for sure....
  8. You are so right Mike... Looking forward to seeing your collection sometime when I have a longer layover!
  9. I hear that buddy. I was so scared when I got it in October of 2020, before any vaccinations were available. I was blessed in that whatever version of the virus I had was very mild indeed.
  10. I met up with "J"/aka p1ng74 last week in Austin. We always have a nice time, getting out in our boots enjoying good conversation and something to eat. We usually try to do some boot/heel shopping, but the usual stores rarely have anything of interest. It is so generous of "J" to drive into the city and pick me up so we can enjoy getting out and about while having great conversations on mulitple topics. I mentioned that my next layover was in Columbus, when he told me that "Spikesmike" lives there and enjoys meeting fellow bootlovers. I contacted Mike, who generously offered to meet up at my hotel (short layover), he was wearing the most amazing red boots with spurs, don't mind admitting I am envious. We enjoyed many conversational topics (including boots of course), while having a bite to eat in the hotel restaurant. I'm hoping I get a longer Columbus layover soon so I can visit Mike and see his amazing boot collection. Thanks guys, I really enjoy these visits. Don
  11. Sure hope you are OK buddy, please take good care...
  12. Hey there

    Will be arriving in Columbus around 5PM today, 5/13.  I have tried to respond to your messages, hoping you found the responses.  You can text me if you like, would be cool to meet for dinner if my airport hotel is convenient for you.  Don't have too much time, leave early in the morning.   Don


  13. Well, I guess the answer here is a sensible balance between fashion and safety. Needless to say, if I was travelling as a passenger while wearing my stiletto boots, there would not be time to get those boots off in an "unplanned emergency", especially if I was sitting in an aisle seat where my delay would delay two other passengers as well. Block heeled boots are not likely to damage the heavy duty slides/rafts. Fire in the cabin is likely to be a bigger issue, so wearing clothes that cover well and are not easily incinerated is very important in an emergency. Sitting near a door exit is going to help. Window exits are good also, provided people sitting in those rows are actually smart and strong enough to get the exits open. A good shot of adrenaline and some luck always helps. Always take the time to review safety procedures and exit locations relative to your seat.
  14. OK, I'll admit it. Don't understand the connection between jumping up and down yelling squirrel and your heels....

    Now those are some powerful boots indeed
  16. Replied there, don't know if you got the messages though. Let me know, Don
  17. Hey there. Just tried a few times to message you, says you can not recieve messages here... In any event, I have a short Columbus layover next Friday, 5/13. Let me know if you live near the airport and might like to meet up for a burger. Don
  18. Yes, the level of sensitivity surely does vary, I think they can adjust the settings on those "magnetometers". I ask them "tell me what is setting it off" also, but never get any real answers
  19. I agree, you want to have a fairly solid footing, especially while going through security. One time I was going through customs in Cancun where us crewmembers get much more scrutiny than regular tourists. The customs agent asked me if I was carrying the boots in my bag for someone else. I told him they were mine, he looked at me strangely thinking I was trying to get away with something. I offered to try them on for him, he closed the bag and sent me on my way.... I'm sure he and his buddys had a few laughs at my expense afterwards
  20. such a powerful combination, you must get many compliments. What size are they?
  21. Yeah buddy! Those kick !@@ boots mean business! Perfect jeans also
  22. Seems like ankle boots are a good choice, easy to get on and off. What airline will you be on?
  23. It would be cool to attend some sort of high heel "training" like this!

    Cali World

    Strolled through a DSW in southern Florida today, saw the same thing. Rows and rows of sneaks, not a heel to be found, except for on the sale racks.
  25. How much of a hidden platform do the Nikes have do you think? How about some of those "chelsea boots" for work? Not much of a heel, but nice just the same. Hope you will post some pictures. D Yes, Nike does make plain black sneaks in most of the conventional models: AF1/Jordans, etc. I have never seen a black pair with the wedge, but will keep looking.
