Ode to the fllp flop

Update on Kayla: She is really doing great. She is now getting up into a wheel chair. I recieved an email from her yesterday. It was the same one she sent to her whole mailing list, expressing her appreciation for all the support and love. She has to go out to the lounge to use the computers. Her brothers and sister, went in for a visit. They were just so happy to see her. I have tried to phone a couple of times but its either busy or the nurse says she is resting. Hopefully tommorrow I will get her.


~ ~Flip Flops for Teresa~ ~

Feel the air upon your toes.

Summer is here. Shed that panty hose!

Slip into these thongs of rubber,

Feet, be freed from shoes of leather.


Brightly colored soles and straps,

As you walk along the street do clap.

Oh joyful sound of summer stops,

When you stand still in your flip-flops!



I wrote this for The gal I sent flipflops to. Monica invited me to take part in a flip flop exchange. I wrote this to send in the mail with the flip flops, but my printer was giving me grief so I am posting it here today. Go sat Hi to Teresa. See if she got my parcel yet!
I just finished 5 long hard days at work, I am so ready for this next two days off! My Mum and Dad are here for a short visit, so we will do something nice tommorrow.
Off to bed for me now.

Thanks for the update on Kayla. It does sound like she is on a good track to get back to normal. Any idea yet when she can go home?

Chana, I think there is now a new meaning for the word thong as clothing, although I also remember when flip-flops were called thongs.

Glad to hear how well Kayla is doing. There is a girl here who's around 20-23 or so and she's been in an accident. She has two artificial legs at the knee and a forearm. My mom sees her at bingo sometimes and she was there the other night when I went. She made me immediately think of what Kayla must be like with that spirit you've talked about.

When I got the flip flop thing from Teresa, I almost didn't do it but I have a teenage girl who LOVES flip flops...so I put her size in as mine. Hmm, I wonder if I can get away with declaring them her Christmas present? No, Probably not.

Glad to hear positive news about Kayla. I hope it continues :)
I heart my rainbow flip flops. I've never wore fli flops as much as I wear those. Love the poem!

Its good to hear Kayla is getting out of her room!

The flip flop exchange reminds me of a kinky blog I ran across, celebrating men in flip-flops, with lots of photos. It was definitely geared toward a fetish thing. Ewww!
