You forgot to mention the humidity, my hell in NO.
Donna, thank you. I live in Atlanta so find it quite mildly humid. Enjoying a Sazarac at the moment!
Be brave, sit with the lady of the most exuberant scent, and cut back on the sugar in the Sazarac!
Laurent, thank you. I am definitely taking your advice.
Cotton socks, in skin colour, if poss. Would make you more comfortable!Best. Herts
Herts, thank you. I agree but have got used to the southern gent's way of going sockless in summer. Shoe liners, of course, do help. As to mozzies: "Deep Woods" scent free towelettes are a boon to a bare ankle when sitting at table on a southern lawn.
