    I had that pair of boots when i was a teen. bought out of deadstock for a dollar. They were probably close to the same age as me.

    As i recall the brand name was “Snoot Boots”

    The meaning of “Portable” has changed significantly over the years…

    It’s an Exidy Sorcerer. I used to sell them at the computer store I worked at circa 1980. Yes, I’m old.

    Ha! My dad bought one of those. I wasn’t even 10 yet, but we did load some fun games off the cassettes. I liked Pie Lob.

    I have fond memories of playing Voodoo Castle on my family’s Exidy Sorcerer as a child.

    It is, of course, a science fiction photograph. The caption probably read “In the 21st Century, this will be retro and will get you boys/girls”

    Just think, we’ll probably see pictures in 30 years time of a girl with her ipod and a boy with his laptop and go “Awww”. Of course, by then the kids in this pic will be so retro that they’ll be treated as gods by the kids in their flying cars.

    I didn’t know John Kerry wore cowboy boots.

    His shoes need polishing.

    I like the vest with pocket protector. Sweet!
