This is much of the equipment a shoemaker would need to make shoes. But every time I serve in Riser Boot Shop, I think of an experience my sister, Melba, and I had several years ago. Her husband, Mike, had come to fix my cooler on top of my house because I won't get up there. He sent us to the store to get some tubing to replace the old. While we were measuring the stuff, my sister said, "You watch, she'll ask us when we get up to the register, 'how many feet do you have?' and I'll answer 'Two, how many do you have?' Sure enough, we got up there and that's what she asked. I was laughing so hard, I couldn't answer, and the poor cashier just stood there wondering what was so funny. If you're not at least smiling right now, I guess you had to be there, or at least know my sister and me.
