"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Shopping For Shoes


My sister is shopping for shoes.



Not for herself

But for her four lovely daughters.



Perhaps to the relief of my brother-in-law,

This time, her shopping list does not include shoes for all ten of their grandchildren.
