I have almost lived in the Pair of Shoes I bought in Jacksonville in early 2014. I feel that they are the best shoes I have ever owned.
I bought TWO new pair this week, although, sadly, the style has changed. I am optimistic and hope that these new shoes will behave just like the old ones.
One leg of mine is about a half-inch longer than the other which, by an amazing coincidence, is a half-inch shorter than the other!
Hence the uneven wear on the heel of my right-foot.
That will happen with my new shoes, too. For a little while I was enjoying the idea that I could rotate my shoes to even out the wear, but sadly, right-shoes are for right-feet only.
I had thought that today I would wear shoes 1 and 2, and tomorrow I would wear shoes 2 and 3, the next day 3 and 4 and so on in rotation. But there is no way I can fit 2 onto my right foot.
Why Toronto Trees Die
Work continues along Gerrard Street. The New Concrete Sidewalks are in place so that Dump-Truck and Concrete-Truck Drivers wont get shaken about as they enter the Building Sites.
The Spindly Excuses for Trees have had their holes filled in with road-making rubble pebbles and clay, as you can see.
In Toronto, trees are a convenient dumping-place for Surplus Roadbed Material.
On top of the pebbles and clay comes a grid to hold a finer-meshed grid.
Thick plastic sheeting will be laid over the clay and pebbles, and a walk-over steel mesh will be placed over the supporting grid.
And within four years the tree will have gown no taller at all, and will die.
