ON THE BACK BURNER

August 17

There were two things that I thought of today, and they are not related. One is that I have many pairs of Crock shoes. Some people go on vacation and come back with something to remind them of the trip. And I just had another thought. My Mother went to Israel many years ago. She brought me back an ash tray from the King David Hotel. One , I never smoked, no one was allowed to smoke in my house and two, she swiped it. Why would she think that I would want that. But I digress. I seem to bring back Crock shoes from my travels. I have one pair from Jerusalem, where they have a Crock store in mamilla Mall, one pair from Boulder's Pearl Street Mall, one from Disney World, and two from a local store. I don't know how this happened. I have them in a tiger print, orange, light brown, grey and tan-ish colors. The other thing that I thought of today while walking Cricket is how I have seen three woman grieve . They all had spouses who had very long ends of life. They mourned, but they recovered and grabbed hold of a life.I admire them more than I will ever be able to tell them. They did what they had to do until the very end and then they blossomed into woman who do. Now that is what I thought of today.

The story about the swiped ash tray is pretty funny !! The things we do ! Dan wears crocks a lot but I don't. Not sure why. I might not care for the looks.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
