Last week, I told you about my friend Fancy Faye going crazy over her new Rack Room Shoes in Gulfport, Mississippi. I mentioned my pair of red Converse All-Stars, and after that, I got lots of email (and comments in the Post Office) from people telling me how much they loved their Converse sneakers as well. Of course, I’ve always called them “tinney” shoes, and never knew that wasn’t what everyone else called them as well. Go figure.

Fancy Faye’s middle daughter chose cute rope sandals on the left, her youngest found sweet little white Mary Janes for Easter Sunday, and the teenager went for the Asics Gel-Noosa Tri 11, which I had no idea what it even was, but it somehow helps her run better. What’s wrong with Chuck Taylors?
