Mama's Got A New Pair Of Shoes

Not a Spam lover? Well, then, you probably should just move along until tomorrow when I'll be back with some other wonder. Today, I'm all about my new Spam flipflops. I got them to use at the newly reopened and refurbished Richmond Municipal Natatorium, affectionately known as The Plunge.

If you enjoy swimming, I can recommend a visit. The water is warm, about 85 degrees, and lightly salty as it's cleaned with saline rather than chlorine (no burning eyes) and it has a huge, beautiful mural painted on the wall at the far end. The hours are a little wonky, so go here to check them out before you come.

The Plunge is the largest indoor swimming pool in all of California. All of a sudden, our little burg is becoming the place to be.

Rubbah slippahs! Very cute. Do you have a slogan on your tank suit ? "Musubi, brah!"

You know we call those 'thongs' down my way don't you ? ;)
If I swam I'd buy one of these - http://remogeneralstore.com/pages/item.cfm?plu=1170, the one with a Fez!

Cookiecrumb, not so far, but now I'm thinking of silk screening that across my butt.

Jim, thanks - you're a doll!

Ms Mouse, here thongs are unmentionables that give you a wedgie. We call these flipflops, go-aheads or, in Hawaii, slippahs. In any language, they are the very best of footwear.

Janie, thanks, kiddo. Let's get together soon to celebrate!

Evil Empress, oh, thank you! That's such fun! Will show it to several and may even put it up on FB, if you haven't already!

Those unmentionables, those are called G-Strings here :)

Ms Mouse, g-strings here are only worn by strippers; thongs, on the other hand, are even worn by White House aides on the make.
