Congratulations Dave!
I know that we are probaly getting off on another subject now, but what if you
don't have the longer 2nd toe? I'm afraid mine all slant down. They are
fairly long, but not skinny. My maiden name was Scott with grandparents who
were, Shannon, Keys, McAnally, and Riley.
Wait! I just looked at my children Mackenzie and Curt's toes. Their 2nd toes
are the same length as their big toe and Curt's 2nd toes curve out (funny
looking). Does this count?
