Please accept my apologies once again for having been quiet the past few days. If you notice a pattern of me disappearing on the weekends, you've been paying attention. During the week I can sneak home every once in a while and indulge in this hobby of mine but on the weekends, it's tough to do so with the wife present. It's not that I forget about all of this, just that I'm not able to come up with much to post. Perhaps I'll have to work on an extra post or two during the week so I can make sure the blog is updated on the weekends. But anyway, I digress.
My quest to build a small collection of large-sized shoes started out great with the arrival of my Ellie sandals but then became a bit of a challenge. Because a size 16 worked the first time, I figured it would work again. That wasn't the case when I bought a similar pair of Pleaser sandals (which are now gone... in the hands of a lucky reader that I trust is having fun with them.) Figuring that I got lucky with the Ellies, I ordered a pair of traditional pumps by Pleaser in a wide width size 17, and was frustrated when they were so large, my feet were just about swimming in them. I sent them back for a size 16 and hoped that the other size 16's I had on the way would work after all. Maybe the Pleaser sandals being too narrow was just a fluke?
