Walking Everywhere, and Anywhere!

Every now and then I will update this blog with thoughts about walking, and being a pedestrian in Southern California. As of 2014, this blog will also be featuring posts about my bicycle adventures around Southern California.

I Am A Pedestrian And Not Buying A Car From You, No Matter How Desperate You Act!

For the last three or so years I have walked by several car dealerships on my way to work.  There is one car dealership where one or two guys (depending on the day I walk by) who act very desperate in their attempts to get me to notice them.  Three years ago they used to shout heels on wheels to me, and eventually they stopped when they noticed I was not going to buy a car.

However, over the last few months their desperate behavior has re-emerged.  Either one or two guys will scream "hello, hello," at me, and if I do not respond, then he or his friend will saying something ridiculous like "I like your socks, I like your hat, or I like your shoes."  See I am an introvert that does not thrive on interacting with car salesmen, and just because I walk by a car dealership does not mean I am interested in buying anything from you!

This car dealership just happens to be on the route that I like to walk to and from work, and why is it I walk by two other dealerships where no one acts this way, but at this particular dealership car salesmen are complimenting me on my socks?  Okay I am not sure what that is about, but I noticed yesterday when I walked by talking on my cell phone there were no silly comments because they probably do not want others to hear what they say.

Yes, I know some people would say I should talk to their manager or supervisor, but I am not going to do that.  I just find their behavior hilarious, and these two guys must be pretty bored if all they have better to do is compliment me on my socks.

Palm Tree Mountain Sunset Walking Shoes

I used fabric markers to draw a picture of palm trees and the San Bernardino Mountains at sunset on a pair of canvas shoes. You might as well have a comfortable pair of shoes if you are going to be walking all the time, so why not decorate to make a fashion statement.

I used fabric markers to draw palm trees and the San Bernardino Mountains at sunset on these canvas shoes.

The video below illustrates how I created these comfortable walking fashion shoes with fabric markers.

Walking Around the San Bernardino Mountains

One of my favorite things to do is take pictures of the beautiful scenery when I go for nature walks in the San Bernardino Mountains, which is one of my favorite places.
