These Boots Were Made For Walkin'

(photo credit:  Laura Gordon Photography)
My work boots gave up the ghost.
As you may see from the photo, the soles have "rotted" away.  Actually, it's a funny story.
When we bought the "farm away from farm" I decided I needed some real work was a mess
up there, and the old LLBeans were not doing the job.  I asked the farmer to get me some work boots from the work boot store and he obliged....but what he neglected to say was he bought them from
(translation:  the section with rejects, overstocks, very old boots, and those poor little shoes no one else wants)
I was thrilled with my new work boots......until a month later when the soles began to......flake away.
Now, admittedly, the farmer is known for his...thriftiness....but these were good quality boots.....15 or so years ago.
I managed to squeeze 2 years out of them, but when I went to put them on the other day, the sole stuck to the floor.... and I lost a good deal of it.
This time, I went WITH the farmer to the work boot store.  I now have a PERFECT
pair of work boots...with an in-tact bottom.....I am a happy worker.  (not so much, I just love the comfy boots.)

Hope you have a spooky and fun HALLOWEEN!


  1. Oh my goodness! I love your new work boots. Ijust had my own work boots on yesterday and I felt so sturdy and strong. I'm not, but the boots make me feel that way. We were facing the task of cutting down a tree that was heavily damaged in a recent wind storm. Luckily there was a tree trimming crew working nearby and we hired them to do the job, saving a possible trip to the emergency room.
