If you are talking about the typical white (and other colours) Nike, Adidas trainers marketed at the youth market - then fair enough. I find some of them ugly.

But there are all kinds of trekking trainers usually in an understated colour. And those kinds of footwear are extremely comfortable for people who may have leg/hip/foot/back problems and can't walk that far - Columbia, Merrill etc..


Black is recommended in the Outback, plus black is Melbourne's go-to shade for everything really.

I reckon I've got 4 different types of black or mostly black 'runners' Hmm can't bring myself to call them trainers, feels odd.

Im.s!owly building up a collection of trainers that I always wanted in my yoof (Adidas gazelles, puma classics, Nike Cortez etc) I couldn't give two ducks what someone thinks about whether im.too old to wear them.

I think about this often, In 20 years time just as in the 90s when old people only wore beige, the elderly generation will all wear baseball caps, jogging bottoms and hoodies, as most the generation that is aging to that point is wearing that currently. Ive more and more started to see 60 year old looking skater men about.

Maybe the the young generation around the time will devise another fashion or start to look smarter, as that is how fashions start, with the young. There was a massive shift in clothing during the 80-90s away from smart to comfort, with sport brands taking the position as brands to buy. We are still riding that wave as the generations that grew up with that are now approaching old age.

Comfort does come first in my book, why where tight uncomfortable clothing if you dont have to.

Look at this generation when they are in their 60s with all their tattoo s and beards.
Anyway I am in my mid 50s and wear trainers, in summer it will be flip flops or sliders as I am told they are called now, so what. I don't see anyone my age dressing how my parents dressed at our age.

Those face scribbles aren't going to age well. I kind of feel a bit sorry for them when they realise the word 'innovator' or 'badass' over their eyebrow isn't actually as innovative or badass as they once thought.

Not sure about the caps. Decided I can no longer wear baseball caps, just didn't feel or look right anymore. Went out and bought a couple of flat caps instead. Also had a straw Panama style hat for holidays for the last few years. Comfortable to still wear trainers but luckily never liked white ones. Similarly I've never liked wearing sports type clothing out though have found I've bought more walking/ hiking type trousers rather than jeans these days.

I look back at my dad, and he was just an average Joe, but he never owned a pair of jeans, never wore a Polo/Golf type shirt - always a long sleeve button-up shirt with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows, and I never once saw him in need of a shave. Oh, and never wore a pair of trainers in his life.

The complete opposite of me in fact, and I'm older now than my memories of my Dad.

They might be left-handed scissors.

No.
I know exactly what they are:

Kitchen scissors that the Mrs, despite countless requests not to, uses for any manner of purposes in the garden, around the house etc., until they are blunted or the hinge is loosened.

... my internet provider sending an email saying their rates are going up $5 a month, but they will waive it if we sign up for Autopay.

Hate Autopay.

So it's the Mrs that annoys you and not the scissors.

I'm sinister myself but have never tried a pair of left-handed scissors. Normal ones work just fine.

Having to bow down to a right-handed fascist dominated world does annoy me though.

That's very perceptive of you, however, in the spirit of entente, the seeking of a quiet life and knowing what's good for me, I will stick with the original source of the annoyance.

Wifey has 30GB of data on her phone but she still turns it off and relies on WI-FI. When I say for what you use your phone, you can't run out, she just shrugs her shoulders.

Oh well

I got most of my bills on Auto Pay (or Direct Debit as we call it here)

It does make life easy.
