People Love Their Parrots

This afternoon we spent time at Schuler Shoes in Bloomington, Minnesota. Things were going pretty much as usual until a woman came up and dropped a pair of shoes in the collection box. As I thanked her, I noticed tears welling up in her eyes. “This sounds silly,” she said. “But can I have the shoelaces from my shoes?” I handed her the shoes and noticed the laces were very frayed. With a choked voice she said, “My parrot loved pecking at my shoelaces. Now he’s dead.”

People are very interested in how they can donate shoes to Schuler Shoes.
