":...with a little help from my friends"
Thursday was a Quilt Guild Meeting 60 miles from home. We carpool as often as possible. This is best hour of conversation (each way) with friends. The pleasure of the drive transcends the purpose of the meeting. We usually plan for some brief shopping.
(Those gals above are NOT us - I just liked the "shoe" angle!)
We shared a quick cup of raspberry tea at my house, then off we headed. I just HAD to purchase some summer shoes, a task I dreaded.
Fortunately the shoe store carries a large selection, but after trying one pair and then a second, I was ready to QUIT! Having big feet (well, I AM tall) does NOT make it fun. Fortunately my two friends lent some much-appreciated support and within a few more moments, they had scoured the store, the sale rack, the expensive shoes and the cheap ones, and THEY found me TWO pair of more-than-decent shoes. One pair was even On Sale, and then we found a second pair. Somehow I also received an additional discount of $15.00. Not bad. They did the running, checking sizes, scanning the sale rack, while I sat there trying them on. Life is good! Thanks quilty friends!
This is a photo of one pair - don't they look like I can climb mountains and hike the Appalacian Trail?
Another successful day – “I’ll get by ”with a little help from my friends.
