Ready to try a running skirt? Here are some features to consider as you debate your myriad choices.

Shorts length: Ranges from spankies—bikini-cut bottoms for the daring—to more modest 5" inseams.

Fabric: Heavier-weight knits, with a wide, flat waistband, are good for mommy-belly coverage, while lightweight wovens are ideal for hot summer days.

Pockets: Size varies from just big enough for a key or Chapstick to generous enough for an iPod or a few gels. Some pockets are on the outside leg of the shorts, others are at on the hip with a Velcro closure, while a few are at the skirt's waistband and offer the security of a zipper closure.

But don't take our word for it, read what our 67 wear-testers had to say. They ranged from size 2 petite to Misses 16, ages 24 to 56, recreational runners to serious marathoners.

I propose that all public servants must testify that they have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. This will keep the government running with a Christian mindset, as it was meant to do.
We should no longer allow women to work: they must must MUST stay home and raise children, and wear dresses/skirts - no pants!
Anyone caught with literature that promotes or highlights feminism, homosexuality, or religion other than the one true Christian religion must be put into a re-education camp, where they are taught the truth of Jesus.
All public schools must teach the Bible as the way of life

Todays funny Part 1

Fender Skirts
I haven't thought about "fender skirts" in years. When I was a kid,I considered it such a funny term. Made me think of a car in a dress. Thinking about "fender skirts" started me thinking about other words
that quietly disappear from our language with hardly a notice.
Like "curb feelers" and "steering knobs." Since I'd been thinking of
cars, my mind naturally went that direction first. Any kids will
probably have to find some elderly person over 50 to explain some of
these terms to you.
Remember "Continental kits?" They were rear bumper extenders and
spare tire covers that were supposed to make any car as cool as a
Lincoln Continental
