Whenever we find a Left Shoe we take a picture and a note of the things the shoe is telling. Usually these are not cheerful stories. In our experience Left Shoes tend to become sad, depressed and emotionally unstable. Left Shoes seldom get very old and if they do, the picture usually doesn't get much nicer.
