Well, gang, I finally have a pair of shoes! It sure feels weird to be wearing shoes after about 5 years going "au natural"! (Since before the amputation of my left foot/ankle.)

I gotta tell y'all ... they are soooooo huge that I swear I could contract myself out to stomp out forest fires with my feel alone! (LOL) If I could figure out how to attach a picture, I'd show y'all. It is a sight to see!!

California, here I come!!!!!

In the alternative ... anyone want to hire me to kick some butt??? (LOL)
