That's what Colin said they looked like. I don't care. They feel like someone with a very large tongue is licking my feet. I think I am falling under the spell of the other shoe freaks, er, acquisitors in this blog ring. When things are going badly..shop for shoes, even in Walmart. If I don't get a grip on myself, these may be the last shoes I ever buy. Oh, my blood pressure wasn't that high. Just high enough for my doctor to start aggravating me about it. But I am taking her admonitions seriously for the first time in my life. More on that another time.
Ah, the frosting on Life's cake - we are without water in the house, or more precisely, without a place to put any more water. We have had a record 14.5 inches of rain here in Georgia in the month of July (which is not yet over) and the ground water has overwhelmed our septic system. They can't come to pump it out until Monday. Fortunately, some friends have an empty rental house 5 minutes away for all the necessaries but sheeeesh !
On a happier note, I got a letter today saying that I was juried in to the Canton, GA Riverfest this coming September. Ka-Ching!
