No shoes please, were Hindu.

Shoes are not permitted in a Hindu Temple, so they have provided this rather pretty shoe rack outside the door.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. And thanks also for leaving a comment and a link so I can return the favor and visit and comment on your blog.

I like your blog and all of the information you have here for others to see and read.

You might like our snow for a little while and then when you realize that it is colder here than the inside of your refrigerator, you might change your mind.

There is something to be said for heat and sunshine. We look forward to it coming back here and for it to warm up and melt the snow. And it is melting some today. I had snow on my roof about waist high and I told my wife it is a miracle that the roof didn't cave in.

I appreciate not wearing shoes inside of this building. It was that way in Japan when I was there in the Army in 1953. People expected you to take your boots off or your shoes off and leave them outside the door. They provided a cloth sock like thing to wear inside so as to not damage their rice straw floor mats.

Thanks again.
