Tuesday Tale of one Shoe: 3 Days to go

On several blogs, during the summer we have seen posts that ask...

We are about to tell you just how hot it was in our fine city.
Every morning, rain, shine, snow or heat wave Mom and Dad go to Crabtree Valley Mall to take a walk indoors. Some days they will venture out into the parking just to see just how hot it is.  
It was hot enough to make the joint compound in the parking lot turn to gray goo. 

Exhibit 1
At about the time Mom was asking Dad what is that smell, her foot was stuck in gray the old saying goes..first you step in it then you smell it. MOL.  
I gave it the Madi Sniff test which it failed
Exhibit 2
 I was so amazed by the mess Mom made I gave her other shoe a sniff but it was clean. I thought that was a good thing but it wasn't!!

These shoes were not even 6 months old. AND MOM REFUSES to throw them away.  She has tried everything she knows but cannot get it out of the groves and the gray goo is actually still sticky.
If you, or any one you know happened to step in gray goo or cow poo, with your left Nike Pegasus 270GTX, size 9, and your right shoe is clean...Mom would love to make you an offer you cannot refuse....just leave a message in the comments


  1. Now that's hot! Our Mommy melted the sole off a pr of Keds several years ago during sum intense heat! (parking lot walking) We kittehz can't imagine that on our tender paw pads. So thankful fur cool homes and lots of water! Tell the Mom we'll be on the lookout fur an extra shoe. MOL! XOXOXO from Prancer Pie.

  2. That is hot indeed.

  3. wow, that's very hot. Its gonna be hot today for us too. Up to 30, which for the UK is very hot yaaaay :)xx

  4. Now that is hot! Our mama got some stuff sort of like that (asphalt like stuff) stuff on the bottom of her shoes. Dad got it out with some WD-40. Don't know if it will help with your stuff or not.

    Sorry you didn't find any good smells Madi.

  5. We could do you a steel toe-cap boot in a 5 but that's not really going to help is it?! Deccy x

  6. Alas we cannot help you but my human shoves the shoes in the washing machine on a wool cycle and it never fails to clean them up. Not that I leave doggy mess around, if you know what I mean. Happy Tuesday to you all.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. BOL!!!!! Hey I miss hearing about your mom's adventures at the mall. I remember a post about the different kind of walkers!


  8. Does it stink as bad a poo? Hope not, hehe. Use a knife and dig it out maybe?

  9. MOL, thanks for the laugh this morning. Boy did I need that. We do not have the correct shoe for you and we sure hope find someone else that has one clean one and one gooey one. Good luck.

  10. Bwhahahahahahahahaha....sorry but my mum wears a 5 1/2 and I heard her shoes were at da beach. I hope she steps in pelican poo. Serves her right furs leavin' me at da kennel.


  11. hehe! your poor mom. Sometimes we see one shoe on the side of the highway. Maybe this is why?


  12. My mom uses stuffs called GOO GONE. Maybe Your mom could try that.

    WOW I guess it was Sizzlin Hot in the parking lot.

  13. i had no clue, but google did, i sent you the link in email on how to do it. and it does involve wd 40 and dawn. good luck

  14. I've tried Goo Gone also. It worked well.

  15. Woof! We are having a heat wave! Woof! It is now normally just below 70! Woof! Hot! Woof! Kate thinks metal tent pegs work great on Chicken poop, which is really sticky! Woof! Echo.

  16. hope you can get it clean....what about acetone

  18. Sorry we can't help - the Momster wears a 10 1/2 Super Slim - and can't even find a pair for herself that fit well:( We have lots of bubbles popping up in the pavement on our street. Lightning keeps stepping on them, thinking they are like eggs and will crack to give him a yummy treat:)

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  19. So sorry about the stinky on the shoe. That stuff is awful! I had that happen in Texas but it got on both of my shoes! Good luck finding some one with the same problem on the other foot! ;)

  20. Mommy says: Carburetor cleaner! The purple stuff. That might work. Also, put the shoe in the freezer and try to chip it off.

  21. OoH yes Madi, have your sweet momma try Goo Gone, it gets all sorts of yucky stuffs off of things. :)

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  22. That is really hot! It has turned very hot (by our standards) here also.

  23. I had no idea that could happen!
    Now that is HOT!!!


  24. We're still on a break but couldn't help but notice your post today Madi! We all went to the Aquatica water park with our visitors and some friends last week and one of our friend's shoes actually MELTED in the sun! He had to walk out of the park barefoot on the hot pavement. Ouch!

  25. Hey, Madi, maybe if your mom stuck that shoe in the freezer, that goo will freeze and she can get it off.

  26. Oh, so awful! Looks like you got some good suggestions! Hope one of them works for your mom!

  27. Madi.... Flat Max was traveling with Susan, so he couldn't stop to see you while they passed through North Carolina. Believe me if HH had been traveling with Flat Max, they would have bee-lined it for your house.... Have a great day.

    hugs, Max


Please leave a meow or bark for Angel Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
