The wayward shoes have returned! As you may recall, they scampered to parts unknown during my Canadian trip last month. I was certain that I had left them in our Winnipeg hotel room before we flew to Churchill. However, I checked with the hotel staff after we returned from Churchill, and they insisted that the housekeeping staff never saw them.
My shoes were merely three days old when we parted. I wear shoes for years and years, and I consider it a splurge when I buy a new pair. They were incredibly comfy and purchased on sale. I wasn’t a happy camper, but I resigned myself to the loss. No big deal. Easy come, easy go. A mere bump in the travel road, so to speak.
And then, I got an e-mail from the tour company the day before Thanksgiving, telling me that they had found the wayward shoes! What a nice surprise! Perhaps the mention of my loss to our wonderful guide had something to do with it. I don’t know. But I am grateful that the tour company contacted me and shipped them from Winnipeg. They arrived this past week.
We're reunited and ready for more adventures together...
