It is good to see some familiar names.

I have a shout out to Pacanis if he is still kicking around the place - I got my hands on a 2 year old Balderson cheddar and am savouring every bite!

Not sure when I will be back. My health conditions have escalated and I am not on the computer all that much. But I love you all.
Kicking around? I try to kick something every day
Nice to see you again. I thought of you a couple weeks ago when I was eating some mushrooms gratin

And Kadesma's passing? I must have missed something last night...

Thanks, Pac. My epitaph will be "She gave the world mushrooms gratin"! And that's just fine with me!

Sorry to give you the news like that. I am still feeling the loss.

When you write "crabby feet", are you talking about their shape or "mood"?

Do you have bunions? What size shoe do you need? How wide?

I have been told that Hush Puppies and Naturalizer are comfortable, but they don't really have any that fit me. Athletic "walking shoes" can be very comfortable, according to my ex-DH. They look like running shoes.

You could try with some good outdoor/walking shoes.. I made good experience with that, too..
Yeah, they are pricey. I paid about $170 for a pair and they aren't very pretty. They are comfortable. I didn't want to pay that much, but finding shoes that fit isn't easy for me (C width feet with bunions). It's harder in Canada than in the US or Europe.

These are mine:



I see from their online store that they have prettier shoes (and better prices than the local wide-shoe store).

You don't have permission to access /images/detailed/18/21253301001.jpg on this server.
Hmmm. Maybe it's only visible to Canadians?

I can see it, but I'm only half Canadian, so only one shoe appears....
