    after reading this blog, I realized many will and can use the computer to do the same thing, however by having all the jokes in front of you, it makes it easier to move and rearrange, but whatever works

    Back in 1956 before I owned any Frank Marshall figures an Insull and penny loafers were the craze I went out and bought a pair for me and a pair for that figure. The Insull feet were too large even taking out the sole inserts. I found the shoes, however, in 2003 long after discarding Insull and Marshall figures and a 40 years sabbatical, when I made a figure to show grandchildren what I used to do. The shoes were perfect fit with cardboard sole inserts traced and cut out to fit back into them. I am glad I did not discard the shoes, the famous Bass Weejuns.
