Breathe easy: Australia is safe ...

... from these unspeakably dangerous shoes.
Is it just me, or do the ones on the right look pretty damn clean? Not even scuffed ...
Our stuff gets here this morning — minus the above shoes, which are now Will's ex-shoes, of course.
It cost us $530 for the quarantine inspection of our container load, which comprises over 150 items. So I guess it was clever of them to find four shoes so dirty and deadly they had to be sent to the firing squad.
At unbelievable expense.
Perhaps they had an armed guard to escort them.
Grrrrr.

It is always hard to spot a terrorist , but the proffesionals know what they are looking for and I suppose the same goes for shoes!

Oh...thank goodness it wasn't the boots. I was worried.

Was there any explanation? I'm glad it wasn't your lovely boots.

I'm so glad it was Will's shoes. Gives you a position of superiority now - knowing that it was NOT your shoes.
