Summer Soxtravaganza

People need socks.

The ancient Greeks wore socks from matted animal hair while the Romans wrapped their feet with leather. By the 5th century AD socks were worn by holy people to express purity and by 1000 AD socks became a symbol of wealth.

Whether pure or rich, people need their feet to stay warm and dry. People need socks.

    I need these socks! It was 9 degrees in Calgary and pouring all day yesterday. I had hot chocolate with baileys last night. The Stampede cancelled the chuckwagons, grandstand show and the fireworks for the 1st time since 1923! Where is summer? I have an outdoor Stampede party today and the high today is supposed to be 21 degrees with thunder showers. πŸ™

    • Tango says:

      What?!? Cancelled the chucks, grandstand and fireworks??!? From 9C to 21C sounds like the Calgary I remember: “If you don’t like the weather just wait a minute.” Hope your party was fun! πŸ™‚

    Socks to signify purity eh? Must be why most of mine are holy then (or should that be holey!?)

    • Tango says:

      Ah benzinho, I’m fairly certain your socks are anything but pure. Have you found your keys yet? Or your shirt? πŸ˜‰
