That post was not put without thought. It's been in the back of my mind and it could have stayed there. Look in the thread that you posted about your special needs kids. You allow yourself the same rantings you accuse me of.
"Hemel Hempstead Escort" ...(Snigger) the mind boggles...the fingers google. Hey presto we get the picture without even having turn the filters off.
I can vaguely remember a time when as kids we had to doff our shoes before entering the house main living areas.
One other thing that occurred to me was that adults didn't seem to have to bother. I took that as meaning that adults didn't step on so much shit is us careless youngsters.
I can get my head round the fsu habit of wearing indoor shoes. The apartments seemd to always have a few pairs available but I sure as hell wasn't wearing them if some other pair of mangy clod hoppers had been in them. I'll stick with the socks thanks.
In UK the carpet seems to be becoming a thing of the past. Folks preffering to lay down some faux wood effect affair.
In my neck of the woods the caspet it still prized for its much valued insulating properties.
Plus the fact that, due to lack of friction, you can never get ball deep into your good lady while wearing socks.
Therefore having to remove your socks to get better purchase you in actual fact twist you toes enough to put them out of joint.
I blame this on wearing shoes for most of our waking life and not allowing our toes to develop the necessary strength.
Just my opinion but I'll be sticking with the carpet...so to speak.
What others will think is important. We stayed in an apartment in Yalta. The curtains were see-through. She told me a few times not to do what I was doing, however innocent it was, because the people accross the way will see me.
