I also have a few pairs of breathable, waterproof, socks, which are pretty nice.

I'd be wearing spikes.

But Sebago says, they are "the perfect nautical footwear." :)

Confession: I had a pair of Docksides back in the 1980s. I did not always wear socks with them.

Speaking of being a father, my son got me a Star Wars Lego set for Father's Day. My son happens to be obsessed with both Star Wars and Legos. This is the second time that he's gotten a Lego set as a gift for me. He's so thoughtful. :lol:

Almost makes me wish I had a son. Almost.

I would too, but the owner doesn't like it.

Indeed. Too askeered to have mrs datlas do it. Barbers allowed to reopen here on Friday at 50% capacity so I hope to remedy the issue soon.

I will keep it in mind. I should be able to do 200+ miles weekly as long as weather cooperates. I am off next 2 fridays too so may approach 300 miles/week.

Everyone likes a cat pic, right? This is a neighbor cat, but I couldn't resist the shot out the kitchen window.

Yep, and a chip off the old block. Quite an athlete. John was there, one of the few people in the stands.
