his weekend's blog is coming to you in part from the Chicago Pride Parade. Why? Well, anytime there's a gathering of open-minded people inclined to celebrate diversity and the multiplicity of options available in this life, I gotta say, "Amen." Or,"Woo-hoo." Or even, "You go, girl." It's a gorgeous Sunday in this part of the world. The sort of weather that gives summer a good name. We can do heat and humidity here. The name Chicago comes from a Native American word meaning "swamp where the wild onion grows," after all. But fortunately the temperature rarely gets out of hand before the first weekend of June, and often the most beastly days don't show up 'til August.
You other clog lovers can't deny
That when a shoe walks in with an funky, chunky heel
It's a thing you cannot help but feel.
You get caught
'Til that shoe gets bought
'cause you notice that heel was showing proudly
From the bottom of the jeans
It's a shoe you really, really gotta be wearing.
So you other shoe fans don't try to adjust me.
That big wooden heel makes me feel so lusty!
Then, years after the fact, I came across this intriguing rocking horse shoe from a maker known as Double Decker. The style attracted a little attention in 2010, but by now I expect it's just a collector's item.
Meantime, the Every Clog Has Its Day correspondent staffing the Australian bureau dropped this sighting in my Inbox this past week.
