    My Sandals Obsession Part 3 - Sears Again

    I put my J. C. Higgins bike (Dad worked for Sears so we always had Sears brands) in the back yard and went in the back door. The slamming of the back door announced my arrival, and Mom's call of “Don't slam the door!” was my greeting. She was already working on lunch, a...
