Closet Clothes-Out

leave a comment »

Bev and Heather spent a good portion of the p.m. Saturday gleaning clothing to keep and clothing to take out of her Sunrise of Arizona closet. The pile fills an oversize trash bag.

She’s keeping it for a couple of weeks to let friends go over the selections before wheeling it off to Goodwill.

She said she’s going to attack her shoe collection next.

The fear is that all this will bring on a massive shopping attack.

O Sole Mio

leave a comment »

Had a shoe problem almost immediately on our departure. I spent time and effort settling on an old pair of thick-rubber-soled Clarks that would be wear-on-the-airplane-and-walk-around-the-village-and-perhaps-leave-here pair. But didn’t want the following to happen.  The rubber apparently has been rotting over the years and the sole on the right shoe split open crossways in Las Vegas. So I went to the little all-kinds-of-stuff store off the Mandalay Bay lobby and bought some Krazy Glue. Jammed some of that stuff into the crack and it worked. As have subsequent applications to chunks of rubber trying to chip themselves off other parts of the sole and heel. So a quick lesson here: never leave home without duct tape and Krazy Glue
