Papa needs a new pair of shoes.
That used to be a prayer of sorts players uttered when they rolled the dice.
But I was focused on foot wear when I visited the thrift store last week and found a pair of slip-on shoes (I hate laces!) that cost three dollars.
Sure, they needed a bit of polish but that was no problem. I was in the U. S. Navy and my drill instructors taught me how to do a spit shine.
It was a friend who turned me into a thrift store shopper. Now I often think of buying used when I need something commonplace.
Not long ago, for instance, I got a crock pot so I could slow-cook meals while I'm away at work. It cost just five bucks and has saved me a bundle.
