Now THAT'S a heel!


I was wearing these shoes on Tuesday morning when I accompanied my friend to the ER. One of the nurses came and leaned way over Larry to ask him how he was doing... he was very weak, laying flat on his back, with oxygen, IVs, blood pressure cuff, pulse oximeter, monitors of every sort, etc. In response, he whispered, "did you look at Mary's shoes?" A man who can appreciate a fine pair of brown patent leather open toed 3 1/2 inch heels is a good man... especially if he is nearly dying at the time! He obviously knows what is important!

I hope you all know I am being way OVER the TOP here.

Have a great sober day, whether you are in your bare feet, in hush puppies, converse all stars, a pair of flats, some simple loafers, walkin' shoes, running shoes, hiking boots, work boots, flip flops, or a fine pair of high heeled shoes! Just put one foot in front of the other and trudge the road....

"We shall be with you in the Fellowship of the Spirit, and you will surely meet some of us as you trudge the Road of Happy Destiny. May God bless you and keep you until then." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 164

That, my love, is a fine example of the spirit of HNT. Very clever. Was Larry in Legally Blond?

MC,
I wanted to let you know about the Barn Dance on Aug 18 at my place. I will ask Motorcycle Mike to forward the info to you, it's a brochure and a map to my house in Castle Rock if you are interested. I need to work on my blog and see if I can post it there. Talk to you soon.
