Shoes

No, I haven't fallen off of the face of the earth. Just been very busy. You see we are getting ready for a trip to Asia. More on that later..but I don't know about you but I am getting tired of looking at those skeletons. (previous post), although I haven't taken another picture....well that is not entirely true. So, let's talk about shoes.....Not my shoes, but my husband's. He really doesn't have very many. Athletic, hiking and yes those fancy ones he wears with his suit (haven't seen much of those in awhile).
You see he is a loafers guy. He has been wearing these this week (no socks of course) because his penny loafers (which are he favorites) are at the shoe shop. He must have a funny stride because he is constantly in need of new heels or soles. Oh for those that don't know. A Penny Loafer has a slot to display a penny....where the tassles are on this pair. Although, I have never seen a person insert a penny.
A good shoe repair shop is difficult to find these days. I don't think the younger crowd have their shoes repaired. I guess they just buy new ones.

So, in the four years that we have lived here in Ft. Worth, TX we have sought out several shoe repair establishments. ...and let me tell you, they are not all equal....but he has finally found a favorite,

 but you almost need to be armed to go there. It is not in the best part of town. I went with him to drop off his shoes this week. Sitting in the car I noticed the shop next door to the shoe repair shop. It had no sign telling what sort of shop it was...and you really couldn't see much through the windows. It did have several unusual notes displayed of the door: Must Have I.D. To Enter.   Ring Bell To Enter   No Hoodies.  No Facemasks.
Several people did enter while I was there. They seemed to be fishing money out of their pockets as they went in and no one stayed very long. I just couldn't figure it out. Have any ideas?

I will try must best in the coming days to get caught up on your blogs and I will try to find something else to post besides shoes and scary parts of town....Janey

  1. May be it is one of those loan shark establishments, and the people entering were paying off some their interest or debts.

  2. In high school I saved my lunch money to buy shoes...had penny loafers in every color and yes pennies in the slots.

  3. I have never had penny shoes but I remember some school girls wearing them with a penny! They were a bit classy not my type of shoe. I have never seen them with men wearing. I am curious where you go to in Asia.

  4. Rosemary's idea might be the correct one.

    I have all of three pairs of shoes. Dress shoes, hikers, and a pair of boots.
