rain alert

Finally a forecast I feel confident about (sort of).  Big supply run to Alpine today.  I'm set for six weeks now if need be.  Splurged for a really good pair of boots today.  First time I tried them on it was like dipping my feet into melted butter.  Rather ironic that proceeds from Benita Memorial tshirt sales subsidized this purchase....and Old Brown Cow didn't seem to care about their origin. (or did she?)  86,99,74,0,B,0

I never dipped my feet in melted butter, so I guess I wouldn't have recognized the feeling. Glad you're happy with the new treads.

With the post title and then the pic I first thought the boot pictured was your rain gauge.

I heard lots of good things about ariat and so i bought a pair. Not sure if they can be considered buttery, but once I saw the label: made in china i didnt care what they felt like. What a GIANT disappointment

I have a pair of Ariat mules I bought YEARS ago....I've worn them out! (and still wearing them) excellent shoes.

I don't know John, I don't like the look on her face. "Is that you Herman?" I'd avoid wearin' them around her for a while.

CAN YOU PET HER? HAND FEED HER TREATS?

We went into a Tractor Supply last year and both of us tried on the boots you have. I agree. Really comfortable. Both of us bought a pair. Great boot, great price

Ariat . Made in China. Good choice...not.

I am more of a Lucchese man myself, but those should work. Great pic!
