Guess what mom did on her anniversary on Wednesday?
It wasn't exactly a romantic dinner for two!
She cleaned the hallway closet underneath the stairs!
Do you see all of these pairs of shoes?
The only ones in this closet that belong to mom are the boots. The rest of them all belong to my dad!
He only has 2 feet! Do you think maybe he's over-doing it a wee bit? Mom does!
You all know that our dad had a heart transplant 5 years ago. He got a woman's heart!
All of these Dansko's have come after his transplant!
This is the stairway that leads down to our basement. We cropped it so no one would have nightmares!
These are all dad's work boots and work shoes.
And he still owns sneakers and there are shoes out in his workshop that he hides from mom so she doesn't know that he has 64 pairs of Dansko's. And don't forget the pair that he currently has on his feet! Do your dads all have this many pairs of shoes?
Yes, our mom owns shoes but it's not even one quarter of the size of dad's collection!
Mom swept down the walls and washed and waxed the floor inside the closet and put all of the shoes back nice and neat!
Here's the best part - dad agreed to get rid of FIVE pair of shoes, which made mom very happy - no Dansko's though!
Some of you asked to see a current picture of mom and dad together after 37 years of marriage.
The most current one we have is our sissy's wedding in June 2007!
So until next time...............
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
