I was so pleased to be able to walk to work today, after a couple weeks' hiatus. It's not nearly so cold and horrible out there as it recently was. I had foolishly left my flat boots at work, so ended up walking in my heels. This might have been a problem, but when I had them resoled recently, my shoe guy put the most wonderful studded heels and soles onto them.

I like my shoe guy (are they still called cobblers?) but find it hard to recommend him to anyone by virtue of the fact that I have never heard his name clearly enough to be able to pronounce it. Nor do I know the name of his shop; it's just a little storefront with a bunch of boots in the window. I suppose my footwear choices are financing Slavic terrorist cells. Shame, that.

I noticed earlier today that my stapler is 2/3 evil: it has the number 444 stamped into its base.

I love the fact that my co-workers drop in to see me all the time; it's so very nice to feel needed. I wonder, though, whether they realize that I'm a more pleasant individual when my blood sugar is above zero. Today I began eating my lunch at 12:15 and finished (two meetings and a dozen brief conversations later) at 4:15.

Time to hit the road. Hope everyone has had a pleasant day!

Is it the short guy with a heavy accent on Lyndale just off Lake? I love him. I think he is a cobbler, as in, he can make shoes from nothing. I told Fast Eddie about him and he confirmed that he himself was just a repair guy. I love Fast Eddie too. I have shoe repair conflict.

On the other hand, if it's the place next to the Rainbow Foods by Minnehaha and Lake, that's where I always brought my shoes. Top notch.

Wow, you're both right.

I used to go the the place that Steven described (and I agree, they were - and as far as I know still are - fabulous).

However, I now patronize the shop at Lyn-Lake, as it's so close to home. (Not to mention its owner's prowess as a purveyor of fearsome treads.)

you posted a comment in my journal awhile back via miep and I think I rudely never responded. My apoligies. Thanks for reading :)

Be well!
