Farewell Old Friends
It was a sad day a couple of weeks ago when walking outside and the top toe-strap of my left yard sandal snapped. I was distraught that an era of my life had ended so abruptly. I have had these shoes for so long now I can't recall when or how it all began. There have been some trials along the way; the back strap of the right shoe fell off; the left's sole began to crack and was saved by some gaff tape cosmetic surgery; they were frayed and not terribly functional; but they were just my yard shoes and I didn't care.
So long good friends.
