On a lighthearted note ...

Yesterday, through the night and now today ..... NO SOCKS!

May not seem like a big deal, but when your feet have been frostbitten, it's a welcome step t'wards spring.

I should be putting mine away for good, once I sever the big yellow umbilical cord this spring. It was either stop and work, or keep going and let the government pay my way. I prefer wearing the socks.

Gotta have dem dress flip-flops. Actually though, what I wear most often are hard soled moccasins. Technically, bedroom slippers.

You might want to change "thongs" to "flip-flops" just to prevent anyone else from getting the same unfortunate mental image I just got.
Anybody got a jug of mind-bleach? PBs frostbite and Simon's thongs combine to conjure a transvestite Donner party.

Sorry Dr. Jones - I got the same mental image as you - I just don't have the social filter that you have - and it takes a while to source those images. Now I have to not only bleach my mind but clear my search history, temp files and cookies.....
