In case I haven't mentioned (at least twice) how much I hate wearing shoes in the summertime, let me be clear: I hate wearing shoes in the summertime. I don't know what it is, but the shoes that fit perfectly and are usually comfortable, become a major nuisance in warm weather. My feet are prone to blisters from shoes that couldn't fit any better. If I could, I'd go barefoot all summer long. It turns out though that other people don't like people who don't wear shoes.
P.S. In case you are in Ithaca tomorrow, come say hello to Lynn and me! We are selling Lynn's handmade jewellery at the craft show. Look for JBL Designs, and there we'll be!
