Today was my first day of classses for the winter term.
I have met my wonderful freshman students and have great kids I know well in my senior seminar.

I’ve got a very good feeling about this term.

Not that you care.

I sealed my Birkenstocks with cork sealer a couple months ago.

Are Birkenstocks like those plastic/rubber shoes with the holes? How many corks did you use to fill up those holes?

My sealed Birkenstocks for your viewing pleasure.

I'm not sure what the link is between Cargos and Birkenstocks.

SAY NO TO CARGO

Birkenstocks are the most comfortable footwear possible.

I'm up at 3:55 a.m., so I'm having a bowl of Blue Bell homemade vanilla ice cream, along with a cup of cold coffee.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

Birks never went away like cargo shorts.
In fact, it's quite the opposite.
Go to any college campus. The ladies wear Birkenstock sandals in the warmer months then UGG boots in the cold ones.
I used to be 'sassy' but got downgraded.

Back in the olde days, when eBay was a new thing, Mrs FredS thought she'd hit the mother-load when she found she could by Birkies from Germany for about half what they were going for over here.

CPS has the finest, most committed enablers anywhere on the entire internet machine.
