AgingPunk Hey thanks to everyone for the helpful responses, I'm going to get some pictures up this week and see if I can get some more great insight from the board.

RE: Cats in the bathtub, you wanted me to bathe them in the tub? Oops, my bad.

This is fucking cute!
Ah. Yah, was sort of asking all whom I quoted. Only because it's happened to me when I've neglected to check. Have even had one end in the fwd slot with the other end in the back slot. Can feel something off in the way it rides toe side pretty quickly now. However when my shop friends initially mounted my first pair (because I was there and they offered) plus all waxes done by them (again because they offered) turns out that whole season I rode with them in the wrong slots because I neglected to check myself. Figured my friends were the experts haha.

!! Apart from it being a circus situation (animal circuses = ), that is pretty fucking cute.

Can't tell if the lion is wincing waiting for it to be over or squinting to keep suds from the eyes.

Either way. Lions are amazing.

Here's one for ya. Sphinxes need to acclimate to baths as they require frequent bathing hence the cuteness and foamy head:


But often it goes like this. Substitute faucet with human arms

Corrected the Asadachi translation


Are you sure the ends of the straps are in the slots/notches nearest to the heel? Only time my Union toe caps slip (on either of my two sets) is when I haven't checked to see they're seated properly before mounting. If the ends are in the forward slot, they'll totally slip. And that's just user error on my part

I've found the split strap to fit the toe box of my boots (thirtytwo lashed f/t) better than the solid strap of previous years. But if the ends are in the wrong slots, they'll still slip.

will do.
Will do.
Can't do, as the last kittens I put in the tub didn't make it out.
Maybe, I'm on a mac and not terribly artistic.
Looking pretty nice out this weekend, may not get to it til next week.
This place is like a group therapy session where problems are fixed, but behavior isn't.
Have a great weekend all!

Problem is I have a wide foot and had to move to up to the l/XL because of worse pressure points
I know the seasons not over north of me, I'm just running out of available weekends
