    Has To Be Birkenstock


    I fell in love with Birkenstock sandals and clogs way back in the 70's. Since that time I have owned several pair.
    My last pair was purchased in 1997 and I am still wearing them today. My favorite are the three strap black sandals. I wear them with heavy socks in the fall and winter and sock-less in the summer time. They are so molded to the shape of my feet nothing else feels right.
    Wearing different funky socks are a must, even different colors on each foot. While finding 'furever homes" at Pet Smart in Macon Georgia I hurriedly put on my birkies with one red sock and one bright purple. At first I was quite embarrassed but everyone thought it was so funny it became my trade mark, even wearing the combo on Fox morning news every Friday to show the pets of the week.
    Hey I am old now and can get away with it! :)
