In keeping with the "I was sorry for myself that I did not have $150 Goodwill price so can you imagine what they cost retail brand-new white knee-high Italian leather boots until I met a man who had no leg" theme, my mom sent me this photo.
You'll notice the guy seated on the left has a wooden leg and there is not a shoe attached to it. Would only having to buy one shoe make up a little bit for not having a leg? Doubt it and I don't think Nordstrom's was around at the that time so he would have probably had to buy both shoes anyhow and what do you do with the extra shoe? I would be ticked off about 1) not having a leg and 2) still having to buy the shoe.
The man on the right is my great grandfather. He is smoking. While he is sitting next to a dog and to a disabled person. Thank goodness people are more informed these days. At least there were no children there. I might never have been born if my mom had been exposed to second-hand smoke.
