Geta are a form of traditional Japanese footwear that resembles both clogs and flip-flops. They are a kind of sandal with an elevated wooden base held onto the foot with a fabric thong to keep the foot well above the ground. They are worn with traditional Japanese clothing such as kimono or yukata, but in Japan also with Western clothing during the summer months. Sometimes geta are worn in rain  to keep the feet dry.

      I’m well past this time of life, kids are 16 and 19, plus I’m not a mom. However, I remember those days. However this did remind me of this past weekend. We went to church and when we got home, our dog had been freaked out because of a thunderstorm. Unutntfraoely, he had made a mess, a number 2, all OVER the house. He ran from room to room in freak out mode, leaving a mess everywhere. OF course our house only has carpet in a few of the rooms, but he found every room. Oh, I guess I digressed. Anyway, thanks for the thoughts!
