    Nancy Sinatra “These Boots are Made for Walkin’”

    2 Minutes 40 Seconds (Ah for the days of mini-skirts, and women’s legs!)

    Forget Nancy Sinatra, he should try some sole music.

    Hey, before you abuse, criticize and accuse
    Walk a mile in his shoes.

    At least he’s well heeled. He wasn’t a shoe-in after all.

    Flat feet might have gotten you out of thr Big One and I don’t know about the police academy, but they didn’t do a lot for you in ’66-69. Besides, American Idol will take ANYBODY.

    Before you insult someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when they come to get you, you’ll already be a mile away. And you’ll have their shoes.

    Before I enlarged the picture I mistakenly thought is said, “these BOLTS are made for walking” . Was thinking of a FRANKENSTEIN angle. Hey, it COULD work !

    Simon Cowell is now his arch-enemy.


    Maybe lifts would help?

    The song for a generation of us Vietnam Vets.
    Nancy will always be in our hearts.
    Jane Fonda on the bottom of our boots like crap.
    It means exactly what it means.
    “These boots were made for walking
    And that’s just what they’ll do
    One of the days these boots are gonna walk all over you.”
    It may take awhile but WE will walk over you eventually.
    Every Vet here knows that.

    I was unaware until now, that the army and the police academy even audition feet.

    Back years ago they would.
    And there were so many tricks used to avoid getting picked.
    I remember hearing draftees back in 72 talk about how many times they would jump down from a ladder trying to get flat feet.
    Had one drag a dog leash with an empty collar. Trying for Psych eval out. They took him and his “dog”. Best one was a dude who put chunky peanut butter between his butt cheeks. When they came by to do the grab your cheeks and bend over examination, the doctor walked by shouting “What the hell is that?” The dude grabbed a finger full stuffing it in his mouth saying “Tastes like s..t sir!!” He was out of line so fast and was smiling all the way.
    Like the book….
    They were the best of times, they were the worse of times.

    Veteran: Even when valid, it was no excuse. Eye chart: [me, truthfully] “The top letter is E, because it always is, but I really can’t see it.” They declared me fit despite bottle-bottom glasses just two stages short of needing a dog. I took my legal deferments like a chicken hawk, even though I am neither.
