Playing footsie

By mrswoolybill
Instead of going out and photographing the snow, Bill and I stayed in and photographed each otherís slippers. Sad, but true...
My slippers are prettier than Billís, but his are definitely warmer. Plus they do a very good job guarding the house against intruders when we are out.
Those men in white coats will be arriving any day now.
Thanks for looking,

Excellent Moira, made me smile.
If the men in whites do come they'll probably just bring their own slippers and together you can scare the town Wink

How fantastic Moira...Sad, but oh so very funny.
Glad there were not facing each other in V2, or you could have had a fight on your hands.
A great start to the day.

Nice capture and made me smile, Moira.

For Hilary, and everyone one else who fancies a bit of aggro, I've had the slippers eyeballing each other on the living room floor again this morning and added a V3.

I think the men in white coats came, saw these slippers and ran mighty fast !! They are rather gorgeous Moira. Of course they are not as delicate as yours, but warmth is worth having on a day like today. Now what are we having the "his and her" version of tomorrow! and who has most holes in their socks!!
This could brighten up our cold dreary evenings for quite some days Moira.

Can't see Bill chasing you round the bedroom very quickly in these, Moira. An original idea though, a super shot and great fun. Will it be hot water bottles next? (On second thoughts, better not give Paul ideas.)

LOl Moira, what fun. I tried to get John something like this one, but he wasn't having it. Bill must have a much better sense of humour than my DH does.

I hope you don't mind me saying so... I think I'd like to wear Bill's rather than yours. Why???

You said it yourself!
