Big shoes to fill

I just ordered two pairs of navy blue converse low tops, size 10 and 10.5, mens, for the Larger Hooligan.  It occured to me that just 2 years ago, we wore the same shoe size-a women's 8, which is about a men's 6.  His feet have grown 4 sizes in two years.  It must be painful.  It is certainly painful on the budget.

At least he has good taste.  It's a pity we can't share anymore.

More like barbed wire than velveteen.

This bunny glared at me from the shelf:

"Buy me!"  He snarled.  So I did.  Isn't he fierce?  I was quite intimidated.  He reminded me of someone:

I send him to my nephew with a note:

Dear Cupcake,
Please keep a close eye on this bunny.  He is very fierce.  He bit me.  Happy Easter!
Love, Aunt Kate

They get along very well.
