shoeless Joe…

My foxling and I went out to enjoy some sunshine yesterday afternoon. We had some steamed veggies and soup at the local Chinese joint, followed by a jaunt to the park at the bottom of The Big Hill. She wanted to swing, and I was looking for birds to photograph, in preparation for today’s challenge. I saw so many small beauties, but they would not stay still for me, and just swooped into the brambles every time I attempted a shot.

My dear, sweet girl wore her clogs, and I thought nothing of it, until she had to walk across the frozen snow to the swings. She did not break thru the ice, and managed to swing quite happily, until her clogs dropped off one at a time, and she started hollering to beat the band. I was laughing so hard, it took a few minutes until I pulled myself together enough to go fetch her shoes for her. In the meantime, I was able to snap several photos and think they convey the situation perfectly.

Even though the photo challenge was “fly”, this was as close as we got… =) Just loving that bereft little shoe and her pouty demeanor !

    Umm… I can tell by that comment you have never met her in passing… she has thrown her shoes out the window since 6 months of age, and even frozen toes will not make her change her wicked ways ! =)
