    I have had several interactions and observations this past week. === I wore my Freebird Canti sandals for my pedicure last week. I’ve known these women for over a decade. The other women, who was working on someone else, told me she likes the style and ask what brand they were. I told her Freebird and she loves their boots but they are out of her price range. Somehow, she is on a list and gets their ads all the time. We talked for about Freebird boots for a while with the women get her pedicure chiming in as well. Going to wear a different pair for my next pedicure. (see the last story for the picture) === On Friday I was in LA and took my mother to an upscale resort for dinner. Her choice. Most of the women where in heels, about 30% in the 4-inch range and half of those stilettos. I was in my black Freebird Blaze. === On Saturday I went to a 50-year reunion. Lots of heels and many great stilettos. === At my room key didn’t work when I got back to the hotel so I had to go the front desk and get it new key, aka card made. Getting off the elevator a guy commented “awesome heels dude”, “thanks”. As I was leaving the front desk, I hear the other front desk agent (a women) say to the agent that took care of me, “did you see his heels?” I turned around and asked, “do you like them?” “Oh yes, I love them.” These Freebird Blaze were a great hit this weekend.
  2. You mean to tell me there is something other than hunt and peck? Mind blowing info.
  3. @spikesmike To reduce the size: 1. Crop the picture in your jpeg photo program. 2. Open Paint3D and import your jpeg. Use "canvas to resize the photo. Enter the % of the original photo you want in the horizontal and hit tab. It will give you the same reduction in the other dimension. Save as a jpeg. Remember this resize is an area, so it is a squared function. Example a 50% reduction (in both dimensions) with yield a file that is 1/4 the size, A 1000 to a 250 size. 50% = 0.5, so (50%)^2 = 0.5 times 0.5 = 0.25 = 1/4
  4. When you don't think it is a big deal and you don't act like it is either, it gives people around you the concept that it's no big deal.
  5. There is only a few places I don't wear my heels. Hiking trails, gravel roads, .... Wore my heels to both the dentist and a MRI last week, but had to take them off because of possible metal.😀
  6. Just remember the line will be very long, so be prepared to stand in heels for hours (days?). In 2019 I walked many of the cobblestone streets in Edinburgh in 4 inch heels, including the castles.
  7. I almost always leave my house and drive off in heels. I park my car in my attached garage (novel idea now-a-days). But sometimes its outside the garage when I come and on. And I will check my street mail box in heel most of the time. It depends on what I am doing. If I am working around my house I will have running shoes. I have too many gophers to wear heels. Also if I am working with heavy or large object such as a kayak, I will also wear running shoes. I sometimes carry a back-up pair of heels with me, sometime running shoes if I am going hiking.. However, bottom line, my neighbors know I wear heels. I will converse with them in heels, many times with open toes that also shows my pedicure.
  8. @balletboot you know the drill...... Manufacturer ??? Style Name???
  9. Almost every shoe I have has metal somewhere on it. Taking off my heels is something I'm accustomed to doing, it's the double take from the screeners that I find comical. I upgrade on long haul flights so I fit comfortably. The smallest clearance between rows was many moons ago on a Cathy Pacific flight between Manila and Hong Kong where my knees were pinned to the seat in front of me the whole time.
  10. Out aerating the lawn? Good luck getting the mud off of those white heels.
  11. @pebblesf Wait until you take your knee stilettos off and they go through the machine.
  12. There are many things I wonder about.... Why would someone wear a top with only one shoulder? Why would someone wear crocs? Life is full of mysteries.
  13. I one of the "lucky" ones who wears heels to work all the time. But I wear heels almost everywhere all the time. I avoid gravel especially in stilettos.
  14. Just remember casinos don't get big by giving away money to customers.

    I don't look at them, I just wear them. Had all faculty meetings the last few days. Saw five 4+ inch stilettos and many other shorter heels. Had several women ask me where I got the the heels I had on. They are the old (5 years old) black Charles by Charles David gladiator type sandals similar to the damaged white pair above. Several others want to see the color of my toe nails. BTW I fixed the white pair with Super Glue.
  16. I have a very high arches and large ankles. The manufacture is unknown, all it has is an Express label.
