Aunt Sally's Pecan Pralines.

If you're an 80 year old woman, or me, you know what the title is in reference to.
I recently bought season 4 of I love Lucy on DVD. Seriously, that show is hilarious. I don't care if you judge me while I sit and knit while watching I Love Lucy.
When I was little I would watch it with my grandmother, it's a show that carries well thru the decades. My favorite episode ever is not the ever popular vitameatavegimin commercial episode. (Vitamins, Meats, Vegetables, and Minerals... do you pop out at parties? Are you unpoopular?). My favorite episode is when they are in Miami and the guys and girls have a bet to see who can catch the biggest fish. The highlight is when the all meet in the hallway of the hotel carrying two huge fish. You have to see it. It's hysterical. I can pretty much guarantee that I will watch this show with my kids and my grand kids.

My Shoe Guy

So I have a guy who fixes my heels. He's a great shoe doctor, but I don't get to see him nearly enough. I haven't been to fix my shoes in over a year. He is the guy at the A-1 Valet place in Clarendon. He is next to the post office.

Today I took in about six pairs of my shoes. They were in AWFUL shape. I completely destroy my heels by walking around in them around the city. Concrete just tears them up. I walked into his shop this morning and I think I made him cry. He looked at me, then looked and my heels and then looked at me again as if to say "Really? Is this a joke?". I asked him to do what he could for my shoes, and told him I understood that if he couldn't fix them it would be time to throw them out. This is all part of my plan to downsize my shoe collection. I have over 50 pairs of shoes, and I know I need to get rid of more than a few pairs. So whatever he cant fix, goes in the garbage. My next step is to get rid of shoes I haven't worn in over a year. I would like to get my shoes down to 25 pairs (But I'll settle for 30). Wish me luck!
