Ruby Tuesday 2 - My Elephant Shoes - March 26, 2013


My beloved friend, Charlene Payton, knows me so well.  Of course, she has 
shared my life for about 40 years since we worked together for a year as
young nurses ( yes, even I was young once ).  We have stayed in touch ever
since, traveling together all over the world, even dragging the children along
sometimes.

Char is well aware of how much I like elephants and she has even donated a
few to my collection.  When she spotted some very special shoes at Alegria.com,
she immediately made me aware of them.  Of course, with a price tag of $109,
I decided I didn't need them that badly.  However, I did keep going back to look
at them and, yes, I now own a pair.  I just love them.  They are extremely
comfortable but quite heavy so I will probably need to wear them on my flight
back to India June 1.  They are perfect for Ruby Tuesday.



Here are my Alegria Paloma Golden Elephant shoes ( thanks, Char! ):

  2. I am sure I could find something like these in India for a third the price, Indrani....but I just couldn't resist. It was a complete splurge.

    You can do some fancy 'New Grandma' dancing in those for sure!
