If I was to get HIT BY A TRUCK....

I know, it sounds just TERRIBLE, but better than if "I drop dead"... OKAY ~ in all seriousness... I think as I'm getting "ahemmm" past middle age, OR, maybe it's just my standards have lowered. Every January, when putting Christmas "STUFF" back in the attic (carton after carton), I tell myself, "Self, pack it away so if next year it's someone else schlepping this stuff from the attic, they'll think I packed it in an organized and careful manor".  (SO THEY WON'T TALK BADLY ABOUT ME) ~ Well, this past weekend the same "flash" came over me... when putting away some yard and lawn furniture...
"Self, do it so next Spring, it looks organized" ...AND - the same with summer clothes in the attic and sweaters coming out... AND... sort of the same with my check book, keep it balanced... don't worry, I'm careful when driving or crossing a street... but these thoughts "do" flash through my mind...

Time passes.

Life happens.

Distance separates.

Children grow up.

Jobs come and go.

Love waxes and wanes.

Men don't do what they're supposed to do.

Hearts break.

Parents die.

Colleagues forget favors.

Careers end.


Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are

between you.

And a girl friend is never farther away

than needing her can reach.

The Hunt...

This is my third year I'm on the hunt for a certain boot, I know I've seen them someplace in my travels, I "think" it was at a leather shop in Lake Placid...

Love these, but don't want the brown only on the top
My wish is to find (for under $250.00) a two toned (black/brown) riding boot... with the brown to NOT only be at the top of the boot... Similar to the black/suede boot, but with brown where the suede is... I've seen many like this, but not thrilled with them... AND, since the ONLY thing God created narrow on my are my "heals", I'd love to try them on and not order as boots are hard to fit b/c I feel as though I'm walking out of them... but at this stage, I'll order them and take a chance... NO Zappos, does not have them...
the hunt continues!
LOVE these, if only the suade was brown leather!
