This is how RAM appeared in Zuiderlucht some years ago. Lesley’s favourite shoes – well, one pair anyway. My rather conservative (with a small c!!!) Oxford shoes. At one point, when I was constrained to ‘dress for the office’, as it were, I had six pairs of identical Oxfords varying only in colour: two black – one about to be consigned to the Charity shop and the other raring to go, two dark brown as with the black, one light brown and a bizarre pale bluey-grey pair which never really worked . . . . . . . .
