Show me your shoes, San Antonio Battle of Flowers Parade 2014! 

It started 115 years ago a colorful celebration of the Texans’ victory at the Battle of San Jacinto after the fall of the Alamo. Now, 3.5 million people in attendance of the event.

Why a pair of old boots? The young photographer explains, “These are my dad’s old boots, well it’s history for me. He’s had these boots since he was 17, and that was a long, long time ago. He said these boots have seen lots of adventures out in the world. I think the wrinkles on these boots look like the ones on my dad when he smiles.” He was only a 3rd grade student. 🙂  

The photo above was captured at the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego Balboa Park. I’m re-posting it. Hope my new blog friends and followers will enjoy the story of this special pair of boots.  

My Worried Shoes by Karen O is a cool song. Hope you like it  🙂    

My worried shoes
I made a mistake and I never forgot
I tied knots in the laces of
My worried shoes
And with every step that I’d take I’d remember my mistake
As I marched further and further away
In my worried shoes

    • that reminds me of the somewhat wistful story of my Dad’s wedding shoes. he brought them with him to Canada when my parents immigrated to Canada, and he continued to hold on to them. his plan was to wear them on his golden wedding anniversary.
       
      and so as old as they got, he still had them. however cancer threw a wrench into the spanner, and he passed away about 14 months before that auspicious celebration could take place. and although i still miss him after so many years, and at times more than others, i am grateful that he is no longer suffering. and his shoes got a well-deserved rest. 48+ years is a long time to be walking.
