It’s that time of year again.       Time for the annual changing of the guard shoes.

My beloved Crocs were slap wore out.         The sole was as slick as a baby’s butt.        In the rain, I was slipping, and sliding around, like I was playing on a slip-n-slide!         Not good for my back, and neck!

What’s that?        Why were they so worn out, when they were only a year old??            Because I wore them every day for a whole year!        That’s 24/7/365.      ( Well, actually you know I wasn’t on my feet 24 hours a day!!)    😉

Okay, so I knew I needed some new shoes.        No doubts about it.        The problem: size.         My feet are ski boat size, and fat to boot!            So, finding shoes to fit me, is a little bit of a daunting undertaking!

Armed with the knowledge that I had found the Crocs at Bealls, I made my 40th foray.         (Give or take 20 forays.)

Yay!!          Success!!            Found a pair of white sandals.

They fit! They really fit!







But wait!!      It’s after Labor Day!!         Ya can’t wear white!!!!   

Oh, fer Pete’s sake!        This is Florida!!            We wear white 24/7/365!           Alrightey then, I’m not to be held responsible when Mama reprimands you!! 

Whatev.            Okay, now.

Found a pair that fit.          Next problem: price.

Only $20?! I can afford that!            But wait!!          They are on sale!!           60% off!!!              So that’s only…..    (Counting on fingers…)  $8!!       I can afford that even better!!       But wait!!    Today is Senior Day, so that’s 15% off automatically!           Woo hoo!!        That’s only…… $6.80!!        Better and better!!           

But wait!!            I have a 20% off coupon!!        WOW!!         So I only ended up paying ………………………………….. $5.44!!!!!

They are practically paying me to take them home!!           Trust me: if they had had any more size 11s, I would have taken all they had!             But at least I got 1 pair!!

I’ll be back next year!

And the proper burial at can for the Crocs.

Goodbye dear friend.
“Deer”??    No, “dear”!!      Oh good, cuz it’s a gator, not a deer!

No, I don’t know where the other one is, but trust me, I won’t be wearing just the one! 

I’ve already been wearing the sandals about a week, and they rub my left big toe, right under my toenail.      🙁

NOW I remember why I gave away the pair I bought last year before the Crocs!!       

Still on the look out for more gator shoes.        Send any hints ya got!!
