I’ve started a new tradition. Just before your sick spouse-a-riffic goes to the hospital, you take a photo of her feet, then apply the “dry brush” Photoshop feature to the image. That makes it kind of arty. Then you post the image on the World Wide Web. I hope this is a one-time-only tradition. Next time there ought be a happier occasion to bring out the Dr. Seussian socks and the classic old Converse tennies. Still, it points to an insistence on a jaunty eclectic style even in most difficult circumstances.
