Good bye old friends

They have been with me for over 25 years.  Together we have cleaned house; gone to parties; worked the AIDS Walk; flown to Kentucky, Hawaii, Vegas, San Diego; walked miles, gone to the ER; volunteered with first graders . . .

I love these Sperry Top Siders.  I wore them all the time, they cleaned up good for over 20 years. They lately began to fall apart, seams broke, rawhide replaced, soles paper thin, and the insides worn out.  Tonight they go out to the recycle bin.   Beside being pretty much worn out, after my weight loss they won't stay on my feet.  My old friends have become dangerous for me to wear.  

Good bye good and faithful friends.
