What I Shed Today

lightening up a little at a time

– Dad’s shoes

on December 23, 2014

I traded my bafflement over the belts for sympathy when looking at Dad’s shoes. We found a few survivors of earlier days in his closet: work boots that fit me, two pairs of the lovely wing-tips he favored that my brother will try on when he gets in for Christmas, and athletic shoes. But most were either slippers or the “old guy,” velcro-fastened footware Dad wore in his infirmity. To the thrift store they go. I hope some other old guy will be happy to step into his shoes.
