Why the name, “Muddy Shoes”?

THIS IS THE VERY FIRST ENTRY ... Left at the top to explain the title. A new blog.  Fresh perspectives. Why the name, “Muddy Shoes”?

Life Behind a School Bus

The line of cars just gets longer. We go a little down the road, then the flashing red lights burn bright in the afternoon sun, the eight sided red sign sticks out clearly from the side of the yellow carrier of children, and a long protective appendage sticks out the other side of the vehicle...

War, Huh, What is Good For?

War. Russia. Ukraine. NATO. China. War planes over Taiwan. Missiles over UAE. Intercontinental ballistic missiles from North Korea. European military buildups. WWIII.
