Oh, dear . . . .

These, my people, are the boots I am scheduled to wear tonight to a costume party. Can I just say "HELP!"

I do love a pair of red shoes, and have mercy, but Coleen, the fabulous neighbor, and I (along with our willing-to-go-along-with-the-fun spouses) are going as Donna and the Dynamos from Mamma Mia! The party will be slammin' -- it always is. And we are guaranteed to have just the swellest of times -- although I do worry that our hostess will not forgive us for tracking the gold glitter through her home; when I picked the boots up to show them off to the urchins, the glitter just rained down.

But I have a reputation for being a little, shall we say, clumsy in the walking department. These boots are going to put me in the hospital.

Stay tuned!
