Summer Kicks

“Shoes” in the summer is a bit of an oxymoron, right?  However, when the risk of ‘no service’ presents itself, duty calls.  For me, summer is a time to celebrate being casual.  Sure, there are formal situations, but I like to make my own summer formal rules: light fabrics, light colors, and no socks.  Admittedly,…

Vintage Beretta Ads

In a past life, I was in advertising.  Not because I’m good at it, but because I’m infatuated with old ads.  I love the nostalgic feelings – especially on timeless subjects.  Today’s example: Beretta.  As a Beretta user, these are close to my heart.  They really resonate with me, and make me yearn for bird…

It’s Time: Order Your Russells

What’s the old saying?  Good things come to those that wait?  Well, in the case of Russell Moccasin boots, that is the case.  Consider this post a bit of a public service announcement.  In Georgia, dove and deer season open in September, and Quail season kicks off in November (although a lot of plantations will…
