We go without socks for at least a week in late July or early August, just so we can say we did it:-)) Laurie walked out on the deck of a charter fishing boat in SE Alaska in May barefoot and about got laughed off the boat.

You're too late - your previous post is forever on the web.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Now we know what a welshman wears under his kilt.

Now that I think about it: that's probably where the name "Scotchguard" came from.

I know this photo has made its rounds before, but I think it's a much better example of how sailing and thongs can go together.
