    Thank you, my friend. We were very fortunate. Irma came and like the big bad wolf she huffed and she puffed...but failed to blow down this "little pig's/eagle's" home, though the beast did blow down two of my trees and left our shrubbery looking decidedly battle worn and needing a good amount of future attention. We are getting on with the exterior clean up and are praying for those less fortunate. :hidden:

    Ah, that's a blessing!

    Sad about the trees, but all things considered, a real blessing. So fortunate that all are well.

    Glad to hear you are well. The place would be gloomier without your cheerful posts.

    And thanks for the handy tip, Flanderian.

    I had expected Eagle might have built something like this for his shoe collection!

    Thanks to both of you for the kind thoughts and words, but if it's going to hold my shoe/boot collection,paraphrasing Roy Scheider from that iconic movie Jaws, "We gotta get a bigger boat!" LOL. ;)

    Forgive my ignorance but why would a toothbrush be different than the brushing you give with the horsehair brush?

    Would it be necessary to condition or treat the welt with any sort of poultices?

    That's a good question. But without comparing the detailed mechanics of the two processes, the short answer is, it works better. I know this because I do both, and when I'm too lazy to get out the toothbrush which is packed away with the my other shoe stuff, the horsehair brush doesn't do as thorough a job. I'm sure it has to do with size, shape and bristles.

    Nope. But I'm sure someone would be more than happy to create and sell you "Welt Balm" if you insist! ;)

    A picture is needed here. So I know what part of the shoe is being addressed.
