“That was the greatest thrill on earth when the time of year came to pull your shoes off. My mother would never let us go barefooted until we saw a catbird. She said when catbirds come, spring is here. So we’d look for that. We thought it was plenty warm enough to go barefooted, but we had to produce a catbird or let her see one.”
Quay Smathers – “Mountain Voices” by Warren Moore
Do you say barefooted too? I do.
