joining in a bit on the thread derailment (but I did love the story!). I've had PF for about a decade and was ready to talk about surgery (I have 1/2" long heel spurs) when I got a pair of Crocs shoes. Within one month of wearing nothing but my butt-ugly Crocs, the pain was gone entirely. It's been almost 2 years since I switched to Crocs (and now have some slightly cuter versions) and I actually forget about my bad feet. Even spending the day walking around Disneyland causes me hardly any discomfort. The only other thing that helped was pregnancy but I haven't figured out how to bottle those effects
enjoy your gifties from Bob!
