Time To Say Goodbye


The last time I bought tennis shoes was eight years ago.   Actually,  these were running shoes I bought to exercise in the Black Forest.  Since then, these shoes have served me well over the course of three continents and a lot of miles.  I finally bought their replacement today.  I could deal with the holes and bits falling apart.  I could deal with the nonexistent padding remaining.  The last straw was when eyeholes from both shoes ripped apart.  Rest in peace, shoes.
