Today’s comic comes from July 3, 1969, when bare feet reached their most recent peak. The strip is Hi and Lois, written (back then) by Mort Walker and Dik Browne.
I can answer that. It’s the one who doesn’t let them atrophy all day long.
One of the reasons I stayed at Chaco Canyon for a fairly long time was to visit some of the sites that I had not visited on previous visits. (Also, I just wanted to take my time and enjoy the whole experience.)
One of the sites I’d never bothered visiting was Una Vida, so I went there on the morning of August 16.
It’s still August 14, since after leaving Lobo Canyon (around 1:00pm) I stopped at La Ventana, which was along the drive back to my campground.
You may recall that I’d seen La Ventana from across the grand curve when I’d hiked the Narrows Rim Trail. This was my chance to get up-close-and-personal.
Since it’s still near the start of school, let’s go with another comic with that standard barefoot trope. This one is from October 5, 1948. It’s from the strip Out Our Way by J. R. Williams.
I still find it odd that growing feet are blamed on going barefoot. It’s as if they’ve never see a puppy before; at that point of adolescence, the feet grow first (and then the kid/puppy grows into them).
