Just for Fun Friday ~ Going Barefoot

I have a rule in my house and the only reason this rule exists is because my mother enforced the same atrocity upon me so I feel it is my duty to pass the insanity onto the next generation.

That rule of cruelty is :  “No bare feet until May 1st” —I’m not sure why mom set that for the date but May 1st was the hard fast  rule so we keep it up…sorta of like lopping off the end of the ham.

As the years of cleaning bed sheets, floors and carpets increase, my fondness for going barefoot and having those feet deposit dirt throughout the house lessens.

I no longer have “barefoot” feet.  As a child I could walk through the gravelled driveway without any trouble but now I can’t even make it from the patio to the swing without cherry picking my way through the cracked and broken hickory shells.

My daughter, Samantha, has informed me her feet are no longer bare…


I guess she’s right…they are no longer BARE…now if we could just do something about the dirt deposits on the bottom!
