Whether sandals season is in your world  10 days a year or 365, are your feet in sandal season condition - soft and supple or do they snag the sheets?

We all know there are hundreds of thousands of "in need of some serious help" feet walking around out there. O'for Feet Sake! Silence those dogs, tame those trotters, soften those shufflers. It matters not if a pair is the problem or an independent -one, they need O'for Feet Sake by Bar-Maids.

  1. Please stop with the "real mom" comments. Sewing grosgrain ribbon and having a mending basket doesn't make you a real mom. I know you just say this to be funny, but it makes a lot of us cringe because the Mommy Wars are alive and well in our fiber-loving community. Please try to stop contributing to it. Please. Otherwise, I love the podcast
