I can't STAND ANYTHING touching the graft on the bottom of my leg. So in the winter I never wear socks. Not even in the bitter cold. And I don't wear boots. Even when I sleep, no blanket or sheet on that leg.

I have really nice boots, which I have not worn for the past two years. Not enough snow to need them. I get by with my merrell shearling clogs.

I have a great boot collection, they've all gotten a great workout!

These are the very comfy boots I wear most of the time. They have a zipper on the side, so I don't have to faff with the laces very often.

I had a pair of Dad's old flight boots that I wore out.

Yeah, I was noticing that they could use a good polish, but that's an old picture.

I swear I will be dead before I can get health coverage through this very mucked-up system. Hopefully the government will not require me to have health insurance when I'm dead, but one can never tell. After all, the tome dictating this system is over 2000 pages long.

I hope you can get this squared away!

I signed up in NYS and have had no problems since the initial bumps when the exchange first went live. It is saving me a great deal over my previous plan administered by the same provider, go figure!

Keep trying, I think it will payoff in the long run!

And just WHY does there have to be a proposal offered in at least one State that will:

"bar welfare money from use in strip clubs, casinos"

Sheesh!
