Bless My Soles

with all the recent wet weather around here I have finally had enough
of getting wet feet, So I have decided to kick my Potting shoes into touch.
I knew they were nearing their end, when at a recent party
Trevor started to feed them peanuts in the holes in the front.
I have been looking for a new pair for a while now but just can't seem to find a pair for my budgeted price of £20.
But clearing out a cupboard at home the other day I found this old pair of trainers
I bought two years ago for £15 in a sale.
They look ridiculously white at the moment but they do put a spring in the step and keep the toes dry, so for now these will do.

You certainly got your moneys worth out of that first pair.

I think my wife might have "disappeared" any shoes like your old pair, Paul.

Something tells me the new trainers will be approaching the look of the old pair in no time flat. They are far too white for clay shoes!

The image of your shoes getting fed peanuts just made me laugh out loud! Those shoes look like the path most of mine take. I just hate buying shoes, never can find ones that don't need a break in period so I wear them until they are falling a part. My husband is the same way. He has a pair of boots from LL Bean that he has had for over twenty years. One night we were sitting by a camp fire, his feet propped up near the fire and the soles just melted off, came unglued I guess. He just pressed them back on and still wears them!

i admire your fidelity to your shoes... it's the way it should be if you ask me, wear them until they're worn out... just like cars

Time to start planning for the show season.

Show Time is fast approaching it's that time of year when you have to think about how you want to present yourself to the world! ...
