[size=150:1dty7cf5]Wearing socks with sandals can save a life

Socks protect from potentially deadly illness

A man from Berkshire recently yielded to the wave of public opinion against the sock and sandal combination and mowed the lawn in sockless sandals. Big mistake.
A few days later, he was overcome with a migraine, high temperature, shivering, and a red leg. Within hours, he was hooked up to saline and antibiotic drips, and spent a long weekend in hospital recovering from advanced cellulitis (with the prospect of septicaemia), a condition that kills 1,000 people a year. All this because some insect enjoys nibbling a tasty foot or ankle.
He said he will, in future, abandon all attempts at sartorial elegance (he is, after all, over 37) and on every possible occasion wear his socks – probably blue, a colour apparently offensive to flying insects – regardless of his neighbours’ tutting.

Nothing wrong with wearing socks with sandles provided a knotted handkerchief is worn on the head to match with a string vest:-)

Yes, Speedgunner it has to be the ultimate in bad dress, especially if anything beige is worn with them. There is a habit in the UK of retired men being fully paid up members of the Beige Brigade. Dreadful colour, not a piece of it in my wardrobe.

Yes, the mind boggles Bazz - especially if the waist size is 40 plus. What a sight!! Oops, nothing personal of course!

Here he is Berni - just to make your day - complete with a glass of real ale. Oh for a pint of that right now in this blistering heat, instead of the euro lager they sell over here!!
