see ya!

Saving log - $0 tip box
Spending log - $30 bananas, ground coffee, chocolate, trail mix.

I'm off to the Beaverhead National Forest for two weeks.

But I did make one last weird observation while DH got a pair of hiking boots, socks, and a water bottle: $45 flip flops.

Wha???

They weren't gold plated flip flops. And this store had several pairs of regular shoes w/uppers and laces for under $45.

No wonder why kids today assume flip flops are work attire - they cost the same as a work shoe.

Time to leave the store.

    When we were in NYC, all the women wore thongs (AKA flip-flops)... even the bride at the reception. We saw them everywhere, in the subway, on the streets, etc. When my DD1 got off the shuttle at Grand Central, where we were waiting for her, she had on a pair of flip-flops. They are great for going through the airport security. My favorite flip-flops cost $3 at Ross.

    Have fun on your vacation!

    Woo hoo - in many parts of the US, thongs hold and pull back a different part of the anatomy, if you know what I mean... Thanks all for the good wishes during my blogoversary.Smile
