You Don’t See This Much Anymore



Yesterday I was dusting my knick-knacks and books in my library when I pulled out my husband’s shoes from when he was a toddler.

The shoes, more than 40 years old, still look good and if I didn’t know that those hard-soled shoes were actually bad for children’s feet, I would still use them.
I flipped them over when I discovered this:



Yes, these beautiful shoes were made in Canada. It’s rare to find items made in Canada these days. And that is kind of sad.

Neat! Cool that he still has his shoes!

That is sad. My old piano, from my childhood, was made in Canada in one of the last Canadian piano-manufacturers.
