In South Florida Now

As we stood visiting with our camp host, I snapped this picture, ostensibly to photograph Buddy, the Dog. Truly, however, I wanted to share the lifestyle of the Floridians with whom we have come in contact. Really nice guy, hates shoes. On reflection, though, I guess the jeans are long enough to protect the bottoms of the feet should the need arise. Posted by

What does this say about culture, if anything? Of course I go without shoes most of the time in my house.

I lived in the Caribbean for a few years and rarely wore shoes. My husband and I were on our way to a formal dinner, he was all tuxedo-ed and I was all evening gowned and half way there I realized I didn't have shoes on! Hadda go back home and get some...

I live in NYS, and don't wear shoes all that often. I try to avoid it, if I can.

Just so you know, OUTSIDE in the winter I wear shoes! LOL Inside, year round, no shoes.

Grace's comment is hilarious! LOL

Have a happy time in South Fl, you lucky dog!

Homeboy's got some dirty toes. ;p

Vee, and of course I never have on shoes unless I'm outside. And not always then.

Grace, there's an image that evokes hilarity. What a moment your husband must have had when he realized he "had" to go back home!

Rebecca, seems if everyone stayed home, shoe manufacturing would come to and end.

Oh, Lin. You don't even begin to "get the picture." ;-)

I've known some people who rarely wear shoes. Those jeans are runny.

No shoes? I have seen some of that when i was in Perth some years back. They must save lots of money not having to buy them!

i guess i am saying that because i might perhaps be feeling a little guilty looking at my own collection of footwear ..

I don't know many grown ups who go without shoes....kids yes, grown ups usually have flip flops at least.

Shark, I think "runny" is a very kindly applied adjective.

Silver, are you saying you have a shoe fetish-- or simply that you have a lot of shoes? ;-)

Dapoppins, when we had a lake place, I seldom wore shoes, unless I had to go into town. I can't stand flip flops. For myself, I mean; I don't mind if others wear them. (A bee sting in the sole at the arch is a never-to-be-forgotten experience. Nor to be repeated, I hope.)
