Socks and Lasagna in August

 It has been a very cool summer in these mountains.

Right now it is 62 degrees.

Weather for hearty meals usually saved for Fall and Winter.

I'm wearing socks.  Normally, I am a barefoot girl. Not today.


I fixed the best lasagna ever.

For real.

THE best.

and I put on socks.

About Socks

Give me the gift of a grip-top sock,

A clip drape shipshape tip top sock.

Not your spinslick slapstick slip slop stock;

But a plastic, elastic, grip-top sock.

None of your fantastic slack swap slop

From a slap-dash,  flash-cash, haberdash shop.

Not a knick knack,  knitlock

knockkneed, knickerbocker sock

With a mock-shot blob-mottled trick-ticker top clock.

Not a supersheet seersucker ruck sack sock,

Not a spot-speckled frog-freckled cheap sheik's sock

Off a hodge-podge moss-blotched scotch-botched block.

Nothing slipshod drip drop flip flop or glip glop

Tip me to a tip top grip top sock.
