    My flip flops ARE crocs!

    I have a route that's at best a 1/2 day of lawns I do with the WB. They're all neat, clean and there's little to no trimming.

    I wear my flip flops on them, sometimes. Never even thought twice about it.

    I like to be able to pick up the toys left by the kiddo's with my toes.

    I see people around the neighborhood all the time running a string trimmer barefoot and no eye protection.

    Out and about with the company no way. I actually don't wear a shirt when I'm at my house trimming. I get poison ivy pretty much every time on my left arm (it's holding the front handle). I try to remember and put up with the heat and wear a long sleeve shirt and maybe a bandana around my face and a hat... .I HATE POISON IVY.

    If I'm not wearing work boots, I'm in my cowboy boots. I had tennis shoes once...back for high school gym. I wore shorts once...back in high school gym.

    I have to wear shorts. The heat from jeans just knocks my big ass out. But sandals?! Nah, no way. Merrill Phaser Peak's everyday.
