Boots and Blue Jeans


These is mah boots, uh-huh, they is.

I bought them several years ago when I decided to embrace my country roots.  They started out as a fashion statement, but I was smart enough to go for comfort over style.  I really wanted some pointy boots, but they hurt my foot, so I went we these things and haven’t looked back.  I have no idea what brand they are.  I bought them at Vanderbilt’s in Wamego, Kansas.  Now I wear them for utility purposes like walking in the mud and crud that comes with raising farm animals.  And that’s the end of my boot story.

Or is it?


Yeah, that’s about all I have to say about those boots.

Let’s talk about the jeans.  They’re Gap Long & Lean, they are the only jeans I could find in any store that were long enough and didn’t have such a high waist that my ribs were resting on the belt loops.  That particular pair dates back to 2002…I’m not kidding.  Yes, I remember when I bought them, they were the first pair of jeans I bought after I had lost enough baby lard to fit into something besides sweat pants.  What’s the oldest piece of clothing you still wear out in public?  Just wondering, no exaggerating, cause we all know I never exaggerate on this here blog.

ps.  Clay was very touched by all the birthday wishes yesterday.

pps. I know I promised a picture of him, it’s still coming….I have to word it to his satisfaction before I can post it…that’s how bad it is.
