Re: What's the history behind your screen name?


The guy who took me to my first Bruce concert (it was his first too) used to mail me boots addressed to "Jukebox Graduate". I guess I was his first first mate for Bruce concerts. I don't remember a flag of piracy on the '68 Dodge Dart he drove to the concert, but it wouldn't surprise me. : )

Re: What's the history behind your screen name?


I started reading the threads at brucespringsteen.net early in September 2002. I was looking for info about Rising tour tickets but I was moved to post by comments about the first anniversary of 9/11. So, I wanted a screen name that was a Bruce lyric phrase and one that conveyed optimism.

Something's open it's my heart
If something's missing it's when we're apart
If something's good it's when we're back together again
Nothing's wrong it's just insane
Nothing's right until you're back again.

It does indeed "all add up". LOL! It looks like it would be hard to walk in those shoes. Or do you mean the rubber or plastic garden clogs?

Re: What's the history behind your screen name?


nope they are the real wooden ones.

I could not resist buying a pair of the "tourist stuff' they look great.

Have had them in yellow, black, plain wood, painted them pink with a pig nose, beady eyes and pig tail.
 
You get used to walk on them quickly and your feet stay nice dry and warm, even at minus 5. In snow however they are killers and that is the time of year i do not wear them

Wow, thanks, Jo! I always thought wooden shoes were just for show to tourists. I have some tiny porcelain ones like the ones in your picture. I got them in Holland, Michigan, USA. LOL! I hope to visit the real Holland someday. : )

All I can think of is being five years old following behind you in the winter
Tracing your footprints in the snow
Trying to walk like a man

My Oma just passed away (Opa did years ago) and I, whilst organizing her things, found the greatest pair of wooden sandals which belonged to my Opa!

There are two stunning things: first of all, I fit his shoes (I AM 6'3, so hopefully that explains it) and, second of all, they are sooooo comfortable!

The Dutch know where it's at.

It's good to have you here, cloggs.
