We are preparing for Hurricane Ike to hit the Texas coastline. We are expecting strong winds and heavy rainfall over the next few days. I was cleaning up the patio when I noticed I left my gardening shoes outside. I picked them up and prepared to throw them into the garage, then it occurred to me that a spider might have crawled inside. I looked in the shoe, but instead of seeing a spider, I saw a toad! I checked the other shoe and there was another toad inside! One for each shoe, tucked up inside the toe section. Toe toads. Toads represent luck and prosperity. I think I'll go buy a lottery ticket.
