Shopping with a girlfriend, we went to schmooze 
at Steinmart: she looked at clothes,
I looked at shoes, found D'Orsay pumps, 
circa 1940s, black leather, of course, 2" heels, 
and even worse, zero support of any kind.  
To the world at large, I posed this question, 
"One more pair of high heels before I die?"  
"You Go Girl," was one reply from woman nearby.  
They made my legs look like New York City, 
but more's the pity, I'm 80, not 40, and 
these killer pumps so sexy pretty, I took them 
home to the practice zone.  Next day,  
a train wreck of reality check-- much regret, 
Steinmart accepted my D'Orsays back.

    So cute, I was never a shoe girl with a size nine feet what's to like but my daughter is 32 and a shoe craze girl, so I know what you talk of, there is a shop down town Toronto, it is called"What A Girl Wants" you'd be happier then a pig in shit excuse my phrase, but that's what I thought when I saw my 18 year old son first day on the job in construction, now 32 started a company, Blessings galore, love vie

    Well, I'm a nine, too, and even a nine can be a Ten, n'est ce pas? I expect you are. A 10, that is, and too too jeune to have kids 32, but I have sons, one 50, one 48, and I am joyous to have them, (a Humanities professor and a Director of Tecnology at a Girls School. Yay!! Love, love, Nola
