Heidelberg, the last of the three Army Hospitals here in Germany changed command today. The outgoing commander is a long standing friend. Normally, one of the Army bands provides music. But they are on block leave. A CD over the loud speakers cuts it for somethings, but not the national anthems, not at this level. End result is that I volunteered the oldest teen to sing one or both anthems as needed. One of the other command members took the US anthem, leaving her with the German (no sweat, 12 years in the German system should be good for something). She was a bit startled to find that this was more than just a couple of hundred people, but performed beautifully.
The formation on the field coming to attention
The passing of the flag –
And the rain held off all morning.
I have checked my sockpal’s site, she has done a number of garter short row heels, so I don’t think she would be totally against texture. Another thought would be to use the hearts to mark left and right feet, since I normally make left and right socks, rather than generic. In either case, this does make the heel bulkier than otherwise. Padding might or might not be welcome.
How do you feel about any patterning on your heel flap? What would you want if these were coming to you?
Sharyn McCrumb with Once Around the Track has done for NASCAR what she did for SciFi with Bimbo’s of the Death Sun (1988) and Zombies of the Gene Pool (1992). She portrays the culture and the people. I am sure that many of her subtle and not so subtle pokes and charactures of the players are even funnier to those immersed in stock car racing. From the little I remember of sports car racing in the fifties, she is accurate. Recommend all of the above as good reads. (Note, the current book is clever and good, but not in the same league with the Edgar Poe winning Bimbos).
Not to forget the begging weredog, who knows she is cute.
