Crocs aren't regional in the USA, they are immensely popular here in Canada as well (and have been for years). I'm a late bloomer and just started loving them. Best thing is .. they are so light. A lot of doctors and medical personnel in hospitals here wear them. They come in all colours, and there are lots of cheaper knock-offs sold.

I was at a dressy party last week and saw someone wearing them with an elegant pant suit. It is an addiction, like TOTV. Watch out. You too will be wearing Crocs to bed.

I just bought something yesterday called Okabashi, they look like crocs, but a little more elegant design in sandals, perhaps it is the wave of the future. :-*

Oh I know all about Crocks, I have about 50 pair of them (slight exageration). The nice thing is they now come in different syles. They have an adorable little girly style called Mary Janes.

I also have a knock off pair that I bought a pay less. I hate to admit this but they are much mor comfortable then the actual "Crocks" brand. and Half the price!Go figure!

Its actually the sneaker/gym shoe that I was looking for the current word for. What do they call them these days??? :dontknow:

Well my friends, if you say so...maybe I will wear those shoes in public, but there is going to have to be some serious mind changing on my part.

Mine look like round toed Mary Janes in black. I use them for excercise in the pool. (I figure I am already wearing a bathing suit how much worse could it get??) I think mine are really really ugly!!!! But they help keep my feet from cramping. I can't imagine wearing them anywhere else.

They are cushiony, but they are rubbery. therefore hot...true?

Lots of changes in store for me I guess.

Susan, they are not really that hot because of all the air holes. Hotter then open sandles yes, but not uncomfortably hot. Gosh, Im beginning to feel like I live in the prehistoric days compared to California. :

Susan, the ugly part of Crocs is part of their charm. They are so ugly they don't even pretend to masquerade as something pretty. Like Doc Martens.

Ya...but Bare I didn't like those either. : I couldn't believe it when my daughter wore her Doc Marten's (all she wanted for Christmas her sophmore year) with her prom dress. :dontknow:
Actually if I had it my way I would never wear shoes at all.

I saw this poster today and thought of Nonie. She and I are both missing our TV homes and want to return to the Reservation as soon as possible.

Also for Susan who is wanting to move to TV.

Don't count the days.
Make the days count.


I remember my mother saying "Don't wish your life away". Now I know what she meant.

Bare with you. It is so true what you wrote. If we don't make the day count that we are living in, it is a lost day.

Thank you for posting this.

Today I bought a quart of frozen chocolate yoghurt. I just checked the container and someone ate most of it. :dontknow: I hate it when it when that happens. And yet, strangely, I'm the only one home.
