Buy the Shoes

SHOES SHOES SHOES

…we all wear them…so many choices, so little time…What do you look for in a pair of shoes?…style? comfort? fit? color? price? Do you buy shoes for every occasion? …work, play, jogging, weddings, golf, rock climbing? Do you have a pair of old mocs, saddles, clogs, loafers or fuzzy slippers sitting around SOMEWHERE that you just can’t part with?

Tell us about attachments you might have made with a special pair of old or new shoes…Maybe Converse hi-tops or a fashionable wedge. WALK down memory lane… What was great (or awful) about a pair of shoes you had, or still have?

Do you remember getting a pair of shoes that you really, REALLY were looking forward to? Do you buy one pair in every color? Did you have to wear a sibling’s hand-me-down shoes? Do you own a pair of bronzed baby shoes?

Fess up! How many pair DO you own . . . 3 or 33? Where do you store all your shoes? Do have an organized system, a pile in the middle of your closet, or are your shoes under the bed with the dust bunnies?

I have stocked this journal with shoe photos to make for interesting viewing (I hope) while you help fill-up the pages.

Please have FUN with this journal. Tell us a story/stories about your shoes…someone else’s shoes, shoes you want. Add your art, photos, pictures, drawings…Anything you want about SHOES and FOOTWEAR.

The Art of Dining Fine

We all know about “fine dining”. Getting dressed in your finest clothes, eating at an expensive restaurant that you can only afford once a year (or years!), displaying your finest manners, negotiating a confusing wine list, waiters with a very high opinion of themselves, etc.

But what is “dining fine”? Well, “dining fine” is when you get together with friends and/or family in your favorite local restaurant/grill/diner/café/etc. These are the kind of places where you enjoy good food and drink, and most importantly, make great memories.

There have always been one or two favorite places where I get together for a meal with friends. Maybe it isn’t even the food but that extra special something that draws you back again and again.

Share that special place with us. What makes it a favorite? Feel free to share pictures, menus, memories, anything at all that you want to share! Just please don’t change anyone’s entries, and please keep this journal no more than two weeks, then pass it on.

When the journal is full, please send it back to Terri White. Contact me at bookmooch id terrilee.
