Jeanie is Bush Babe's sister, and since they were both well raised by their fine mother, Anonymous, they are singularly nice people. However, since they live in Oz, they get confused about Yank expressions. Jeanie was intrigued by the word 'huaraches', and wondered just what I had kicked off before wading out into the Conewango creek to miss perfectly good pictures of a bald eagle.
Jeanie, dear, they are shoes. Huarache is a Mexican term for a type of flat shoe made out of leather thongs braided, woven, twisted decoratively to form the upper part of the shoe. I have two pair of huaraches and one pair of fisherman sandals that I wear almost exclusively in the summer when I am not at work.
I kicked off my shoes before wading into the creek. Just wanted to be clear.
