These Boots are Made for Walkin’

Today I’m thankful for a sturdy pair of boots.

I live in a region with cold, snowy winters and stormy, muggy summers.  A good pair of boots is protection against both snow and rain.  They’re comfortable and look presentable with most of my clothing.  I love boots.  They’re utilitarian.  They keep my feet dry.  I can tuck my pants inside them so they don’t get ruined by salt in the winter.  Go ahead and laugh at the inanity.  However, a solid pair of boots, a quality soup pot and a multipurpose kitchen knife can solve a number of basic needs.

Only tangentially related:  Sir Terry Pratchett (RIP), author of the wildly funny Discworld series, used boots to explain economic inequality (source Discworld & Terry Pratchett wiki).  I had similar thoughts about garden sheds.
