|... a great find at Walmart|
I have always loved a shined shoe and in the not to distant past, I have heard myself say to a grandchild, “Never trust a person whose shoes aren’t shined.” Even knowing that is blantantly false, the words just slip out of my mouth.
|... the old family shoe box ...|
The old cake polish in my shoe shine box now resembles the dry clay of the sunbaked prairie – small fissures, cracks and crumbling when I touch it. A soft cloth won't work to pick it up. It is not a case of touching it with a cloth anymore – now it is scrapping it off onto the cloth and hoping enough stays there between when I make the dig and when I get the polish to the shoe. That is the reason I bought a new black cream polish yesterday: Moneysworth Best Dressin’ Up Quick Shine No Buff Cream Polish.
