Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound. As I have mentioned in past articles, I am in the middle of moving and it is driving me crazy. My current house has an attached garage, but the new location has a detached garage. This is not a deal breaker, however, I am not thrilled walking out in the morning and getting my work shoes covered in snow, so I thought it would be a good idea to get a pair of galoshes. Not just any kind; I wanted a pair big enough that I could easily slip them on and off without taking off my shoes. I would put them on when I walked out the door and take them off when I got into the garage, and repeat the process when I came home from work. My mind went back to when I was a kid, and we had rubber boots with clips down the front that made it easy to slip on and off. None of the local stores carried anything like this; all were pull-ons and made to be worn as shoes. I did find what I was looking for on the Internet, and it said to order at least two sizes larger than what one wears in a shoe. I normally wear an 8 1/2 to a 9, depending on whether I wear my work shoes or tennis shoes. So to be safe, I ordered a size 11. They finally arrived on the front porch, and it was a good thing they were rubber boots because the box was soaked completely through from rain. But it had not raining here, so no idea how that happened. Anyway, I pulled them out, unlatched all the latches and slipped my foot in one. Well, I only got my shoe halfway down the boot. Seriously? Back to the drawing board; so I ordered their largest size, 16. That better do it!

The hit-and-run victim was just getting to his feet when a policeman ran up to help. “My mother-in-law just tried to run me over!” the shaken man told the cop. “The car hit you from behind,” the officer said. “How could you tell it was your mother-in-law?” “I recognized the laugh!”
That is all I have…take care and, as always, be good, do good, play safe, and remember the best journey starts with a single step in the right direction.
