Sorry I have been MIA this week. It was a busy week, with parent-teacher interviews at work, and a number of other outside of work commitments which has rendered me three days without a run, and a little anxious about it. I am tapering now, but that doesn't mean not running at all. Oh well, I plan on running today and tomorrow.
Last night I went to Casino Rama with a good friend of mine to see Bill Cosby, which has left my sides a little sore from yesterday. The man still is hilarious at seventy one years of age! And yes he did the dentist routine.
While we were driving up to the show, my friend mentioned the shoe tree that she passes every time she goes up to the casino.
I had never heard or seen the shoe tree before and asked if we could stop and take a picture. It is on a relatively quiet highway in the middle of nowhere, so I wasn't expecting much, but I was surprised when we can across it.
I tried to research how the shoe tree came to be, but found nothing, so if anyone knows the history of the shoe tree, or about any other shoe tree, I'd be interested to know more about it. It was an impressive site.
As far as the casino, it was my second time ever in a casino. I put five dollars in a quater slot machine, and won $10, and cashed out right away. LOL. Hey, it buys me lunch!
Wishing everyone well at their races this weekend (Marlene, Nitmos, Roadbunner, Julianne, Christy, Tiger and anyone else I missed!)
Thanks for reading!
