The Return of the Prodigal | Manolo's Shoe Blog

The Return of the Prodigal

Manolo says, it is Tuesday, and the Manolo has returned from his most recent Patagonian adventure, more or less in the single piece. Sadly, the Manolo’s beloved MacBook did not fare so well, as the glass of mineral water was poured into it, with the predictably hilarious results.

Unfortunately for the readers of the Manolosphere, this accident and the Manolo’s travel to remote and unwired regions of the world, coincided with the acting up of the Manolo’s internet servers. Because of these circumstances the Manolo was unable to adequately address the server problems, and thus you may not have been able to see this site or the others for the better part of last week.

Please accept the Manolo’s apologies for this difficulty.

Happily, the Manolo has now returned to Buenos Aires and next week the Manolo returns to America for at least the next several months.

    So relieved and happy to see you are back with us. To say that I missed all of the sites of the manolosphere is a drastic understatement.

    I confess I feared the worst.

    Many cheers for the return of the Manolo! The Manolo has been very much missed.

    Perhaps now the twitching of the withdrawal will subside and the reading of the Super Fantastic Manolo blogs will calm the needs of the soul.

    Welcome back, Manolo! At the risk of overstepping my bounds, perhaps it would be a good idea to move the Manolosphere to more robust servers — more like the Merrell hiking boots than like the Chanel ballet flat.

    Ah, the Manolo, and the fantastic wit, and the beautiful shoes have been sorely missed! I hope the internet servers learn their lesson and never again take me away from the posts that keep the shoe-fantasies in good regulation.

    So glad you’re back! I feared the worst too. I even emailed you hoping you were checking.

    It’s amazing that the water on your macbook would make the servers that are so far away start to act up… :P

    We’ve missed you Manolo. Don’t ever leave us again!

    Welcome back, dear Manolo! It was the desert without you!
