Checkered Boot

I knew all about her checkered past.


Still, I kept my mouth shut while she talked. Maybe---just maybe---I'd learn something new.


Here it was. "I've been awfully lonely," she said, "since my last husband gave me the boot."


She handed me a cool, even gaze and did not volunteeer any more details. That was fine with me. I'd check out her story later. Meanwhile, I had my own checkered past to keep me up nights.

Every shoe tells a story — This one, along with the Dart Shoe and Croquet Shoe, were created for my very first show ever, with the Northern Ohio Illustrators Society. The theme was "Games People Play".
