Fall is just around the corner -- so step into the season with trendy and comfortable slippers. Yes, slippers! In early spring the introduction of sequined and embroidered Indian slippers was just what we needed. They were bold, exotic, incredibly soft and definitely made a fashionable statement. Thankfully, they'll be in style even through the fall season and can be worn with almost any outfit to add lots of style and sparkle. Summer becomes fall As we make our way into fall, what do we do with all the summer dresses we loved so much in the heat?

Super Bowl Sunday arrives, and Nate Smith has an important message for his girlfriend, Darlene Griffin. It goes like this: "Don't be wearin' my slippers. " That's a warning Nate uttered the other day, after cutting my hair in the West Baltimore shop where he styles and teaches the tonsorial arts. He seemed to be asking me to convey the message for him, though I'm sure he's delivered it directly by now: "Don't be wearin' my slippers, Darlene. " Those are Nate's 'Niners slippers, see, a gift from a customer.

Once, it was your worst recurring nightmare: You went to school wearing only your intimate apparel. Today, that nightmare -- in a less risque form -- has come true. Pajamas, and often slippers, have become public attire. This time, nobody seems to notice. Those roomy, flannel pajama bottoms, sold by the gazillions at Old Navy, American Eagle and other youth-oriented retailers, are worn to dinner, class and the movies as nonchalantly as if they were jeans. Fredrica Newman, a Goucher College freshman, was recently spotted on campus heading to lunch while wearing a sweat shirt and SpongeBob SquarePants pajama bottoms from Target; the very same SpongeBob SquarePants pajama bottoms she wore to bed the night before.

If the rocking chair evokes sweet nostalgia, and the recliner conjures retro machismo, then the slipper chair brings to mind an elegant lady who subtly announces her presence in a room. She may be adorned in plush velvet or luxe silks. Or ever so casually turned out in crisp cotton. The slipper chair, according to the late Baltimore-born decorator William "Billy" Baldwin, is a chameleon. "It is a small, low, armless chair, but with remarkable versatility," wrote the designer in his best-selling 1972 book, "Billy Baldwin Decorates.

For the second time in a little more than a month jockey Ryan Fogelsonger was involved in a major spill. The 2002 Eclipse Award winning apprentice was riding Christmas Slippers, the 2-1 favorite in Thursday's 8th race at Pimlico, when the filly appeared to prop at the M-= mile pole. Fogelsonger, who hustled his mount from post No. 2, was thrown towards the rail and kicked by his horse. He endured several lateral summersaults before coming to a rest and lying motionless on the turf. Pimlico medical director Dr. Harry Harris indicated the 23-year old was complaining of neck pain but was alert.

THE TEACHER hugs herself and asks me if I think the classroom is too cold. I'm a menopausal nude art model. "No," I say, getting ready to take off my clothes. "I have hot flashes." The students, older teen-agers, say nothing and continue setting up their easels. One frowns. Perhaps they don't know what a hot flash is. The teacher, Sue Lowe, a slim striking blonde in her early fifties, who starred in John Waters' Desperate Living, knows, of course, what a hot flash is and doubles over in helpless mirth.

Want a way to give back to your parents and give yourself peace of mind? Senior-proof your home. Your parents will thank you. The American Geriatrics Society reports that after 60, the number of falls and severity of fall-related complications steadily increases. Many accidents can be prevented by removing potential hazards. Signs of senior weakness or instability should raise the red flag for adult children, such as: parents holding onto furniture to help them walk or maintain balance; dizziness; visual problems; difficulty getting into or out of a chair or bathtub; impaired memory.

Presenting this week's sports media notes while wondering why I haven't been getting any bids from people who want to buy the rights to the domain name watchingsportsandeatingcheezits.com: CBS' Clark Kellogg wins this college basketball season's Carnac the Magnificent Award (kids, ask Mom and Dad about Johnny Carson) for his prescient prediction of the four No. 1 seeds making it to the Final Four. But is staging the NCAA semifinals without a team in glass sneakers a good thing for the network?

How, precisely, to dress for a recession? Modestly, resourcefully, with an eye toward vintage. Moth-eaten sweaters will stage a comeback. Holes are huge. Worn shoes, too. Hand-me-downs, share-arounds, what-was-I-thinking and if-it-still-fits-wear-it will out-Vogue Vogue. The old-money look will be the epitome of style - without, understandably, the money part. Slippers are a sound purchase, unlike stocks, as many Americans won't be traveling anywhere with their farcical dollars. We will be spending much, much more time at home, with the heat turned way, way down.

Unlike most ballerinas, the dancers in Barbara Owen's ballet classes don't have their sights set on the Bolshoi. They are not taking daily lessons, auditioning for productions or watching their weight to squeeze into tiny leotards. They often chuckle when they crash into one another and smile when they stumble. It might sound like the lessons lack discipline. Instead, they cater to a particular crowd of dancers - those 40 and older. For Owen's ballerinas, dance classes are as much about fun as they are about form.

BOSTON - A few years ago, I faced one of those ethical quandaries that don't turn up in journalism class. My birthday was announced in the newspaper date book. This was startling enough except for the fact that the paper had lopped about three years off the actual number. What's a good journalist, let alone a good feminist, to do? Did I have a moral obligation to write a correction? Was it ethical to live with the error of their ways? I never had to resolve this dilemma because apparently some college classmate outed me. This brings me to the number of candles that now grace the cake of my life: 64. By any normal account, this is a thoroughly unremarkable birthday.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - Scott Peterson, who had sat impassively throughout most of his trial, wept as five defense witnesses portrayed him yesterday as a kind and thoughtful man, appealing to any sympathy the jury might have for the convicted murderer's family. Testifying in the penalty phase of Peterson's murder trial, his brothers and sisters and longtime friends spoke warmly about Peterson's "positive impact" on those around him. They described his ongoing correspondence from behind bars with their children, and their fears for the well-being of his mother and father.

It's hard to say why these freakishly tiny shoes, nestled in a cardboard box, survived. Perhaps the exquisite green and red silk Chinese slippers, three and a half inches long and likely made by a woman for her own bound feet, were a family keepsake. Perhaps they were benignly neglected, then rediscovered by someone who treasures finely made old things.In either case, it is fortunate for the balding Danish podiatrist snapping photos at the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine's Shoe Museum that the pair survived.
