Oh, BTW, my neighbor like's to shop. So, we usually do some shopping, which means window shopping for me. We went to Boot Town after lunch, as it was right around the corner.

Sorry for the major threadjack. My evil neighbor made me do it.

I haven't had cowboy boots in 15 years. But, I started snooping around while he was buying a belt, and found a beautiful pair of Handmade Lucchese boots that were marked down fifty bucks, due to a blemish on the inside stitching. I got the manager to knock another 15-percent off.

So, I now have a pair of handmade Lucchese full-quill ostrich boots for around 400 bucks. So, when I meet up with Buckytom in NYC, I will be...



Apologies for the major threadjack. But, there have been worse.

Hey, if I come to visit you from Dallas, would you want me to be wearing my Birkenstocks?

Cool boots, cd.

bucky, sorry to hear that your kitchen is trashed. Don't know why you still can't cook, though. I was still making meals when we lost power for nearly three days back in 2011. I hope you're up and running soon.


Tonight's meal. The apples were extra yummy - I splashed some Bourbon on them. Twice.

Oh my goodness Casey!
If I spent $400 on a pair of Cowboy Boots, you know for sure they would NOT be going out on the range those pictures of the cowboys on the website.
No way, no how!
That's what the Tractor Supply is for, for those rough and tumble sort of boots!

I have two pairs of boots, one black and one brown.
The black pair are "goin' to meetin'" boots

LOL, K-girl. Those new boots are actually pretty durable, but they are definitely "dress boots." The won't see much mud and stuff. LOL.

The price was too good to pass up. I will only wear them for "formal" Texas occasions.

They should last me the rest of my lifetime.

I'm not native Texan, and don't want to be... but I do love me some ZZ-Top. More on those boots....

Thanks Cheryl, Roc, and CG. With all of our pets (3 parrots, 4 cats, and a turtle) the logistics of feeding them will be a bit more difficult having no kitchen, especially the sink.

CG, the only thing left in the kitchen is an island, and upper cabinets. Oh, and the nuker. No stove, no sink. All pots and pans are boxed up.

I bought a bunch of frozen Korean meals as well as the fish, so we'll have to get by with the microwave and slow cooker if we get tired of eating out.

This is going to take a month or more.

I still have a coupla pairs of boots, grey/blue python, and brown lizrd skin, from back in the 80s. I wonder if they still fit? They'll stretch.

We can both look like tourists. I'm sure you have extra cameras to hang around our necks.

And extra fanny packs.

Sorry to hear about the kitchen damage, Bucky. I can relate to that, since I had a drain pipe from the upstairs that sprung a leak behind the range, and they had to break out the wall, to get to it. And moving a 2500 lb range was not that easy! lol

No fig newtons here, either, though I was thinking of making something with the dried figs (usually something I just have here to snack on). Eventually, it got too late...

I had more freezer leftovers - a lamb stew, which I served with some of that leftover basmati rice in the fridge. The best part of the dinner was the salad, however - freshly cut lettuce, of two types, some mizuna, some chives, and a little basil. I almost went down to get some more, but again, too late.
