Yesterday’s Dispatch happened to have two barefoot photos in it.
As I’ve mentioned before, the Dispatch often has these “about town” photos that aren’t really news stories, but just show people out and about.
And every now and again those people are barefoot.
Here’s the first.

Yeah, there really is nothing remarkable about it, or shouldn’t be. But these days it seems that all too often a summer camp might have an uber-cautious “no bare feet” rule and you’d see them in aquasox instead.
The second photo is related to my entry of a few days ago, At the Ohio State Fair. This is one of the attractions.

Again, there should be nothing remarkable about this, or the fact that the attendants who run the attraction are also barefoot (I saw that they were barefoot when I was there). There’s a lot of water around.
Except, of course, for the official Ohio State Fair rule:
All patrons, vendors, concessionaires and exhibitors must wear shirts and shoes on the fairgrounds.
There are no exceptions in the rule (or for me).
Except of course there are, but only when they choose to allow them.
