Subject: RE: BS: another part of rural ireland dies
Back in the early 80s when I was a 'mature' student
[ie I didn't start my degree until age 22 after the band split up],
I'd had to learn to lead a frugal lifestyle of making ends meet and things last...
So I nipped into a small shoe repair shop to buy a packet of segs.
The bloke in front by the counter was taking in a pair of knee length leather army style riding boots.
It turns out it was time for their regular heel and sole maitenance
as they had been worn continuously in his family for over 70 years...
You won't see much of that any more these days.......
Mind you, knee length leather army style riding boots ???
due to it being a hip trendy city, it was difficult to guess if he was from a strict military family,
or one with a very long tradition of decadent kinky bondage and S&M.......
errrmmmm..., or both !!!???
