Old Boots in Service

My Army Boots

The debate was whether or not Army boots acquired in the 1970s should be retired.

I don’t think so.

I placed a set of inserts inside and they are as comfortable for walking as any of the expensive sneakers I bought to lighten the load of working on concrete floors all day at the home, farm and auto supply store.

At 40 years old they have a lot of life left in them. I have two pair.

They may make a fashion statement but I don’t wear them out in public very often so who knows? I plan to wear them in my garden and at the farms this weekend.

It has been impossible to get much done after a shift at the home, farm and auto supply store. With busy days combined with hot afternoons, I’ve had little energy left at 6 p.m.. Saturday has become the pivotal day in my garden life. With dry conditions, it will be again this weekend.

Main crops remaining to be planted are beans, cucumbers and peppers. Once that’s finished I can transfer to maintenance mode and focus on other aspects of yard maintenance. I have to get it finished though.

Other than non-stop work, this week has been uneventful. I may get across the finish line of spring planting before spring actually ends.

Politics? Taking a holiday.
