Welcome to Our Glorious, Marvelous, Surprisingly Ordinary, Very Gay Days.

I always travel with my dirtiest pair of boots, because the best shoe shines are to be had at the DFW airport. The man shining my boots had been working at the airport for 20+ years. Only once has a younger person shined my shoes. Most shoe shiners are older gentlemen. What if I outlive them? Who will shine our boots? I think the same about furniture reupholsters. Have you ever seen a young person work as a reupholster? We need to get our boots shined and our furniture reupholstered before this generation of craftsmen die out.
