2 pair down this year. 2 to go.

One of my dress shoes decided to die yesterday. I do not know why. It went `pop!' and then there was a hole in the side. With the untimely demise of my sandals earlier this year, this takes me down to a pair of boots and my running shoes. How much longer before I needs go monkey-footed due to lack of footware?

Clinton did very well, as expected in West Virginia, last night. The most interesting result to me from the exit polls was that 15% of self-identified Democrats self-identify as Conservatives. I suspect in a lot of ways the WV Democratic party has retained much that has been lost in other states. I only caught a bit of Clinton's victory speech. What can I say? Hellboy was on the FX channel.

I started this early in the morning. I intended to write more. I didn't. Work got in the way.

Clearly the "I'll get back in the kitchen and make ye a pie" platform was a success.

If it's a nice pair of dress shoes, and the hole was alone the seam of the soles/shoe, you can usually get them re-soled and fixed pretty cheaply.

Before my right shoe exploded, I was considering taking them in to have the soles replaced. There is an old school shoe repair shop just down the street from my day job.

If I ever remember to bring them with me to work, I may yet do that.
