Caution: Last White-Shoe Weekend of 2010

Caution: Last White-Shoe Weekend of 2010

The 2010 White Shoe Season, which commenced on May 31st, ends this Monday, September 6th. Persons wearing white shoes in the continental United States past that date are assumed to be illegal aliens from the Southern Hemisphere, and will be treated accordingly. You have been warned.

Have a happy Labor Day.

    Thanks, Mike. I ran into those serious consequences when I was younger but I’ve learned my lesson!

    Do I need to exchange my straw hat for felt today, or can I wait until Columbus Day?

    If you’re talkin’ straw bullrider hats and Stetsons, it depends on altitude as well as latitude. You don’t need to wear socks with your cowboy boots until Columbus Day, though.
