Last week Brian came over on Saturday wearing sandals, as is his usual habit. It snowed and he was stranded here without reasonable footwear to get him to the bus stop and home to Capitol Hill. Luckily, it was just the beginning of this messy weather and I was able to drive him home.

Anyway, I decided it would be a good idea to pick up a pair of boots in his size to keep here in case it ever happens again. I found a nice pair of Timberlines at Good Will and picked them up for a couple of bucks.

Tonight a stranger knocked on my door and asked if he could abandon his car in my extra driveway. Since another car had already crashed into a parked car across the street, I said sure and asked if he was going to be able to get home. He said he was in for a long walk in the snow but thought he'd be okay. Then he looked down at his feet in a kind of sad way and I noticed he was wearing dress shoes. I offered the boots and it turns out they were a perfect fit.

Hopefully they will get him home without frostbite. He'll return them when he picks up his car.
