First up is a question from our friend Mr. Mark Albee regarding my heterochromia iridum - or the fact that I'm bi-eyed. He wanted to know ... "Is it true you can see in to 2 worlds?"
Mr. Albee is referring to an old legend that says those who are bi-eyed can see into Heaven and Earth at the same time.
|Heaven on Earth, perhaps, but ... seeing Heaven and Earth?|
Alas, I must dispel this myth, though canines do have the ability to read peoples' hearts. Having different "vision", though ... no. Having said that, I AM fairly certain my mom (who has two browns) can see through walls, as she always seems to know what I'm doing. It's kind of freaky.
There's another legend that says that bi-eyed sled dogs are faster than dogs with the same color eyes. This one I just may well buy into, as I am aces at doing zoomies! Seriously. Trust me here.
Our dear friend Molly the AireGirl said, "I would love to know how many pairs of sneakers your mom has, Maggie? She sure does have great taste!" Mmm. Sneakers. Taste.
Oh. Sorry. Right. She probably didn't mean "taste" as a verb there. Well, the shoes are kept in one of the magic closets around here for some reason. The doors to said places always seem to be closed. I have no idea why; let's not even discuss it. That's all in the past. And in the trash. Long gone. Let me try to sneak in and check out the sneakers. (Ha - get it? "Sneak" and "sneakers"? Moving right along...)
OK! Molly, I managed to drag out just the Salomons - the ones like the pair you saw yesterday.
|"Yeah. She might have a slight addiction problem."|
She's partial to these. After her fall this Spring, it was especially helpful that you don't have to tie them. Their QUICKLACE™ system has a strong one-pull tightening capability - easy-on, easy-off. That could explain why the number of Salomons went from 1 to 4 during her recovery period. Please keep in mind Mom very rarely wears anything other than running shoes any more - so whereas other women might have pumps and heels and sandals ... our mom has these.
Yeah. So ... these are just the Salomons. I'll get Cam to help me haul out some others. We might need to find a larger room. Let's just hope Mom doesn't use that "I Can See You, Maggie" vision of hers.
|"Too late. Hi, Mom. Who, us? No, we weren't doing anything."|
"I have never chewed a shoe in my life. And don't worry - I'm watching Maggie."
So, there you have the sneaker collection, Molly. Come to think of it, there were an awful lot of comments about Mom's shoes yesterday! This wasn't a question, but my very cool kit-cat friend Ditto made an interesting observation about the pair in the Wordless Wednesday shot! He said, "...they look like they would make a fun head rest for naps." Funny you should mention that ...
|"Right on, Ditto! Right on, my kit-cat pal!"|
Great minds think alike, Ditto!
Remember, if you have any Questions to the Prime Minister, please send them in! Thanks for some great ones this week!
