When winter started, I had one pair of boots. Now look! I may get through the whole winter without getting wet feet once. And I have so many, none of them will wear out by being worn to a nub every day. And these are on nice stubby heels so I won't fall flat on my face.
There is something amazing about wearing boots. I feel brilliant when I do, as if my brain expanded. Maybe it's the thinner air up here.
