The Guess Who - Hand Me Down World

Would you wear hand-me-down shoes?  Or thrifted, used shoes? 
Some people are ~ "Heck no! No WAY!" ~ people
Some people are ~ "OK, Maybe, if they look clean enough...how much are they?  Cheap?  Sure!  I'll wear them" ~ people.
 
I potentially fall in the later category, if they are clean enough. 
 
ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE FUNKALICIOUS LIKE THESE!!! 
A week later, I'm still hung up on these shoes I found at the Thrift Store, which were too small.  They were so different and unique.  Don't you hate it when you fall in love with something, and you can't have it?  These shoes are worthless, until you can't have them....and then all of a sudden, you would cut off your right arm for a pair, your size.  D'oh! 
 
WHY ARE WE LIKE THAT?

 So I've dried my eyes. *sniff*
  I've let go. 
I hope these shoes blessed someone else out in the universe.  *sigh* 
Then I hear this song, and started remembering the mega-fantabUlous Kenneth Cole,
leather Golf -not really- Loafers.   
Again, she weeps.  Boo. Hoo. 
It wasn't meant to be.

Do I age myself if I post this song?  I grew up on "The Guess Who".  I remember driving out to California in 1976, jammin' to their 8 Tracks in our black Pontiac Grand Prix....  This is us, in the mountains of Arizona.  I'm on the far right.  You can't see my face.  That's ok.  :)  We're going to Disney Land, baby!
 
“I could walk a mile in your shoes,
but I already know they're just as uncomfortable as mine.
Let's walk next to each other instead...” 
~ Lynda Meyers ~
 
Be blessed and Be a Blessing.

Mentioning the band wasn't bad. I mean, there are so many bands these days that people just don't associate as much. But, oh dear, the 8 track mention has you busted. lol. Have a nice weekend.

There are like five of us ladies at church who wear the same shoe size (although my foot is wider) and we are always swapping out shoes! I'm a cheap skate and refuse to pay full price for shoes. I actually found a brand new pair of Cherokee canvas tennis shoes for a $1 at a yard sale once!
