I started off my new year in a fresh pair of kicks. Which was a great decision. They landed me in front of a fabulous umbrella on the ground, conveniently, when it was raining out, into a puddle without any damage, out to see some fireworks, to a great hotel party, and home with the ability to take them off.....all in the same night! The 1st may have been even better. I got to see the Mummers!!! Which were a total hoot! I recommend that if you have never gone to the parade, you should try next year.
