    The higher up the plum tree grows
    The bigger grow the plums
    The more a cobbler plies his trade
    The broader grows his thumbs!
    Top job that...

    Cracking workmanship that is, a trade that is slowly being lost for all. My old man was never seen in anything else but leather uppers and soles and he swore by them, I also liked to borrow taking my boys out on the slides down the hills, Brought back loads of good memories there of my Da, so missed by me and my weans.

    Fantastic ! Simply brilliant ! I have the utmost respect for your effort. Well done and enjoy the wearing of them.
    i suppose that's what happens when you have those dark stormy nights in Shetland to while away.
    Far too many people just throw money at things these days and then get bored watching TV or drinking beer in the pub instead of doing something fantastic and rewarding like that. Great work.

    kind regards, Olaf
