The Chucks-master A.K.A Spadowoman!

Now here is one more reason to look up to Spadowoman. Her choice of footwear.
Exhibit A:
The Peace Chucks which are worn to protests...

Exhibit B:
Her Looney Tunes Chucks (I am definitely gonna need a pair of these for my final resting wear).

She also owns a pair with flames for her Harley ridin' days.
I think she definitely qualifies for the title, "Chucks-master".

Makes you feel kind of ordinary that all you wanted was a pair of red or purple Chucks doesn't it Bluegrrrrl?

Okay, my question is this: Since the Spados are from the midwest, do they call them Chucks or just tennis shoes?...or am I just really sheltered up here in Pheasant Country?

OK NO, In the Midwest, we always called them tennies and i used to say gym shoes back in the old days. But we also know them as Chucks. Chuck Taylor high top gym shoes made by Converse. As you can see, Barb has some and they are well worn.

Now Bluegrrrrl wants purple ones. Only in California :-)

I actually have a pair of light green high top chucks I wear when I go out and have to get "dressed up". They look great with my black slacks and a button down shirt. Of course, we never get invited out anymore and i haven't worn them in a while, go figure.

Sorry I haven't been around, First off Mary, The mosiac ia amazing, it must give you such joy to do's these amazing works of art. Next I knew I liked Spadowoman for a reason Great Chucks. Heres one of my crazy little stories, When I was about 7 Chucks became popular but my mother would not let me wear boy sneakers. Yes for all you youngsters out there there was a difference. So my Dad did what any red blooded American Dad would do who only had one princess. He bought me a pair and painted them girlie so I could wear them. They were always my favorites and it satisfied my mom. Thanks for the memories folks

Just so you know, tonight I designed and ordered my very own personalized purple high top chucks. With the word PEACE written up the back. I won't say how much I paid. Entirely too much, though!

At least you won't have to hear me obsess about them any more!

Bluegrrrl- Congratulations! Surely you are going to share where you were able to do this! I don't feel bad about spending when it is something I obsess about. I feel bad when I spend and am thinking "that'll do".
