I guess I gotta go buy new slippers, eh?
One wonders exactly how thangs like this happen. By that I mean the left slipper is fallin' right apart, with three MAJOR holes in it, while the right slipper is completely intact, with nothing so much as a tear or anythang. Lotsa scuffs, though. I suppose I shouldn't complain, coz these slippers lasted me for well over 20 years. Seriously. Here's me wearin' those same slippers, back in 1990:
Semi-mysterious... I mentioned this past Thursday that we had the windows and door (singular, there's but one) open yet again on what was another nice day (for winter) here on The High Plains o' New Mexico. What I didn't mention is the fact I turn the furnace off on these sorts o' days to keep from heating all o' P-Ville while I'm out on the verandah. So, I mosey over to the thermostat to turn off the heater and what do I see? The heat is off, already. And why is this noteworthy? The last time we had a day like Thursday was the previous Sunday, so that means I went for the better part o' a week without my furnace bein' turned on. This apartment must be a whole hella lot better-insulated than I give it credit fer bein', mainly coz we dropped into the high 20s on most nights this past week.
Update, later that same day. Well, the design has changed slightly over the last 20+ years and I do believe the price has gone up, too. But what hasn't?
My tootsies shall be warm and stylish again in three to five days. Well... warm, anyhoo.
