    Wish I could do the same during the summer months too but “safety policies” at my job won’t allow it – and if I did try to sneak by my coworkers would rat on me just because they couldn’t get away with it!

    I use to work in a machine shop, no shorts or flip flops.
    Subject change: I have been a treker since 1966, how about you?

    She should work from home! It appears she only sits at a desk with her computer and paperwork.

    I’ve always worked at software companies. While I never wore shorts or flip flops (hate those things), many others did.

    Hey, I used to work at a software company where my boss wore shorts and bare feet.

    My husband used to work with an IT fellow who wore shorts and sandals all the time. Company’s closed now, but Sam still comes to reunions dressed that way. Everybody else wears suits or nice polo shirts, ladies in dresses, Sam is in shorts and sandals.

    All the stories above remind me of my father in law, who used to insist that my husband would not get ahead because he always wore Hush Puppies to work.

    I wonder if Val got a chance to call Phil and tell him how great the vacay was. And then they can meet later and reconnect, and express their love for one another in a more tangible way.

    Val’s house is too distracting. She snuck out of work early one spring or summer day and found that with both kids, mom, sister and family all home – it was calmer at work.

    I don’t like either shorts or flip-flops. But then I am a Naturist anyway. So the human body doesn’t scare me.

    So we finally see a female Stone Soup character wearing shorts and flip flops in the summer Stone Soups.

    Business suits with shorts for bottoms are really fashionable…no flip flops though!!!!

    Oh, I can’t wait to finally return to work on Monday. I hate vacation, and five stupid weeks of it is just torture. By the way, I thought Americans weren’t guaranteed vacation by the law?
