It has been several weeks since I said goodbye to you. I must admit that I am not saddened by your absence. You might be interested to hear that independence agrees with me very much. I am doing quite well on my own, and I keep company with footwear that is far more gracious and agreeable. Perhaps we may remain on amiable terms, but I have no intention of returning to our previous relationship. It was much too controlling and confining, and I believe that I have greatly benefited from our parting of ways. I hope that there are no hard feelings between us.
Dear Readers and Followers . . . we are headed to Illinois for Memorial Day. I will be back on Monday. Till then!
