If the shoe fits

The last time my dad visited the ranch he left behind a pair of shoes, 
and they've been collecting dust ever since.

 I've now re-purposed them as barn toys,
and I'm sure he would approve.



Hank: These are a pretty big shoes to fill.



George and Alan couldn't figure out how to put it on,



or how to tie it.



Then I put a cookie in the bottom.



George: Put yourself in my shoe. How would you feel if there was a cookie within reach 
but your mouth was too big to get it?



George: See what I mean? The shoe is on the other foot.



George waited for the other shoe to drop.

  7. I saw this birdhouse the other day and when I saw your Dad's shoes, they reminded me of it. http://pinterest-daily.com/daily-inspiration/daily-inspiration-002

  8. A wonderful story line, your dad is enjoying a good laugh! And I'm sure I heard Alan say: "Shoe fly, don't bother me". :-)
