Okay, we are (finally) landscaping our backyard, which is now (yes, this very minute!) in a state of total mayhem and chaos, as well as a mud pit; the machinery noise is constant, I have to walk the dog every hour or so, so he can do his "business" since the yard is uninhabitable, and my brain is mush (I am a person that needs quiet, lots and lots of QUIET).
So since I cannot think of anything today, much less anything on shoes, I give thanks to Micah Snell, a Nashotah House senior, whose posting on shoes was brought to my attention by David Turney. From Micah's blog, Unbridled Warhorse:
