What's in Your Shoe??

On Sunday I thought I would give the lawn one last good season 2008 mowing. It was warm enough and the grass needed to be trimmed (according to the W G Homeowners Association).

I keep a pair of old sneakers around for just such an occasion. The last time I had worn them I was digging in the dirt and they got a touch muddy so I hosed them down and had left them outside to dry.

My new BFF, Ms. Widow

I can tell you I didn't feel good about putting on those shoes. I had a strange feeling somethign was a tad off. But I put the left shoe on and all was well. I was about to put the right shoe on when I notice some cobwebs. I said to myself, "Self, you might want to bang those shoes out before you put them on." And so I did.

Well, it just so happened that this little lady had made a comfortable home in my shoe and was settling down for the long winter ahead. I'm thinking if I had put that shoe on, she would have been slightly ticked off and let me know about it in her own special way.

Needless to say, I tossed those sneakers. Remember kids, always bang out your shoes!

Yikes! Thank God for super spider senses! Ugghhhh! For some reason I want to go out and throw away all of the shoes that are in the garage.

Now I've got the willies! ick!

Wow. I'm so glad you didn't die! That would be very bad.
