Re: re nursery interview apparel

Marge, yep - Gemplers had what I wanted in another brand, but again, this
was something I had to try on because sizes mean very little.  If they would
simply state next to the size, the toe-to-heel length and maybe the width at
widest point, it would be a whole lot easier.
BTW, there is no way I'd wear rubber anything in 90 degree weather except if
it's raining.  This is why I've always liked the canvas slip on shoes.
They're cheap, so when one pair gets wet, I just grab another.
