POTD: Lost Booties

Posted on Updated on

[Update blogger and skincare specialist Ruth has pointed out my terrible storytelling and possible crimes against proper sentence structure (I’m so laughing, Ruth…). No, I didn’t find these booties walking down the sidewalk all by themselves. I should have inserted “while I was” ahead of “walking”, hopefully indicating that *I* was doing the walking, not the empty booties. Thanks, Ruth. I really must behave myself in the future!]

Found these […] walking on the sidewalk. The stone on this wall is at the corner of the James Cheek house property (c. 1875). I guess they weren’t wanted anymore.

I am forever finding strange things in this town. ~Vic

      You know, that is a great question. Maybe I should have titled my post: Abandoned Booties. LOL!

      I was pondering that very thing. What? Someone snuck up on you, scared you, you jumped out of your boots and ran away? It’s a head scratcher for sure.

          I noticed the holes, too. They must have done a lot of kicking…or stumbling up steps. Geez.

          You need to re-read, above. Ruth caught my terrible sentence structure. I had to laugh.

                      It’s your blog. You can respond as you see fit. No MF is gonna come on MY blog and act like an ass. There was a blogger I used to follow about 18 months ago. He & his sister both blogged and they were (still are, I guess) in Australia. They were basically kids. He was 18 & she was 16. She was a sweet kid. He was fat & obnoxious. He made the mistake of getting on MY blog in the comment section to try to tell ME about the politics of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. I, personally, don’t have a dog in that hunt. I am no cheerleader for either side but, he had lots of trouble with facts…like, Israel has only existed since 1947. Palestine has been around since Jesus’s time. Here’s another one…Judaism is a religion, not a race. There are white Jews, black Jews, Middle Eastern Jews… He, literally, lost his 18 year old mind all in my comment section, railing on the Palestinians…comment after comment. I wiped his tirade out. NO. You don’t come to my blog and spew nonsense, ESPECIALLY when you don’t know WTF you are talking about.

                      It depends if the come back… one comment and I just brush them off… if he would have come back… that is when the tirade would have went down…

                      “Marx fans are so tired of that picture…” Some people have nothing else better to do than be a troll. There’s a reason why I can’t stand FakeBook & Twitface. They are both cesspools.

                      Now you know why I moderate.

    My comment was in no way meant to criticize. I enjoyed thinking of the boots walking down the sidewalk. I don’t do much creative writing but could see this photo being used as a creative writing prompt.

      I did not see it as a criticism. As soon as I read your comment, I started to giggle…quite a lot. “She’s right!”, I thought. I also thought other readers would get a kick out of it. Max, above in the comments, thought the same thing you did.

      I’m not much on creative writing, myself. I’m too left-brained “just the facts.” I may ramble on about said facts but, couldn’t create “a story” to save my life.

      Thanks for the chuckle! ❤❤❤
