The footwear faux paus

Labor Day has come and gone, signaling the end of summer. This means the days will be getting shorter, the air will have that crispness of fall and candy corn, much to my friend Hazel's dismay, will flow in abundance.

This has been a particularly rough summer when it comes to our home garden vegetables. Excessive rainfall has prevented many plants from growing or ripening properly.
