CHERISHING OUR VALLEY 2013
In September 1977, the great character actor Jack Oakie wrote an article entitled "Shoes - A Footnote", for Performances magazine. He began by saying: "Having been a dancer, I learned to love and respect shoes. In all my adult life I have never thrown a pair away My shoe collection goes back almost 60 years, as does the collection of steps danced in them. - I am now pushing 74 and find the pull of gravity becoming stronger and stronger. Getting shoes and steps up off the floor is no longer the buoyant elevation it used to be."
