Sole Destroyed

By NDODS    
I have been trying to upload a particular image for over a week now and it is becoming rather soul destroying. So in order to express my frustration I have uploaded this image instead.

Thank you so very much to all of you for your very flattering and kind comments following yesterdays upload.

The optician appointment which I thought I was going to yesterday, is in fact scheduled for today at 12:30. "What a 64 Carat Plonker I am"

I hope that you all have a great day ahead.

Thank you once again for all your wonderful comments and messages.

Regards Nathan

Abandoned clothing of any sort fascinates me, but particularly footwear. How did someone not notice???

I thought it was a queer fish in the TN!!! But it's quite effective! I missed an appointment at the hospital once - exactly 24 hrs late - but they were so kind and fitted me in.

I once travelled all the way to the office on a bank holiday... The round trip was about two-and-a-half hours...

Best just to turn round, and not tell too many people, say I!

Have a good test today!

Seems appropriate that I thought it was an eye when I first saw it and you are off to the opticians.

The image you are trying to upload. Are you sure it is not too big?

Thought I was the only one who arrived early (or late) for appointments. Once took my husband to the exhibition of the entombed warriors at the British Museum a week early! Another time I organised a friend to pick us up a day late from Heathrow following a trip to Australia& Vietnam! We waited & waited for him. Got him out of bed to come & get us. Unfortunately he had the piece of paper I had given him! I was wrong.
This is a very lived in shoe, well spotted & taken
