RIP Good Friends

Those of you who have been following the blog for a while may remember the anti-fashion statement made by my favorite pair of moccasins:

It is my sad duty to report that this valiant pair that gave meritorious service for so many years finally bit the dust. The bottoms decayed to the point that not even duct tape could salvage them. The final death throes happened whilst vacuuming the house; a lunge and pull with ye olde trusty vacuum and the bottom of the moccasins remained rooted while the feet did not. RIP old friends. (Fortunately blueviolet is out of town so she won't be able to tell me good riddance and razz my sartorial splendor. And Monnik is tied up so she loses out as well. And the rest of you who commented in the past on them? Can gloat all you want. {*grin*})

BTW, the answers to yesterday's quiz are:
I came, I saw, I conquered. -- Julius Caesar


Love me, love my dog. -- St. Bernard


Love conquers all. -- Virgil


Age is a matter of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter. -- Mark Twain


An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have. The older she gets the more interested he is in her. -- Agatha Christie


After thirty, a body has a mind of its own. -- Bette Midler


Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names. -- John F. Kennedy


It takes a wise man to recognize a wise man. -- Xenophanes


A man can be happy with any woman, as long as he does not love her. -- Oscar Wilde


A man content to go to heaven alone will never go to heaven. -- Boethius
It always surprises me how many people don't catch the Agatha Christie quote.

  7. Awww, poor moccasins. I hope you had a good sendoff. It would be quite depressing to hear that such a great pair of shoes left via the trash can.
