Not so sad as Mijken's goodbye's but I have to say goodbye to my shoes. I went out into the field to help the kids find a hole in the mainline to dig up and I got my shoes all muddy. Actually, everyone's shoes got muddy. So I threw them all in the washing machine. Everyone's came out looking great EXCEPT mine, which I wear everyday and I have no other shoes to wear. Here's a pic of how they looked. As you can also see, we also have wasps!!
