Takes me back 365

Again my busy day left me little time to get pictures.  Our friend from up the hill was visiting, but both he and the mister were not into having their pictures taken. I convinced them to let me at least get a picture of their footwear. And yes, they thought I was very strange. As I was fiddling with the pictures in photoshop it dawned on me that the boots and slippers were the same ones that were part of my life when I was a kid.  The rubber boots took me back to visits at Clearwater and grandpa coming in from the barn. Many visitors back then also showed up in their boots, leaned back and had a cup of coffee and a bit of good talk just like our visitor today.

The slippers remind me of my pa and my uncles. After a hard day in the woods the work boots came off and the slippers went on and stayed on, even if we went over to someones house to visit. I remember all the boxes of these same Minnehaha slippers stacked at the local mercantile. I know it seems silly, but to realize that in these times where everything seems to be changing,  this little part of my life has stayed the same over the decades,is really comforting to me. -Sandy
