Boots

I love the fall, despite the fact that it means the summer is over and with it my break from teaching. I love it despite the fact that it means no more sweet summer corn, grilling outside on the barbeque, staying at the ranch, swimming at the lake or going camping
I love fall because the world turns brilliant shades of yellow orange and gold.

I love fall because you get to play in the trees.....



And I love fall because you get to wear cozy sweaters and cute boots. Particularly these boots....

I bought these boots a couple of years ago and they are still my number one fashion item for comments. I don't think I have EVER worn these boots in public and not received a comment on them. Strangers, friends, mere acquaintances....everyone has something to say about these boots. Besides the general bland comments like "cute" "cool" and "awesome" these boots have been called "gnarly" "radical" "psycadelic" "tripped out" "bombtastic" and "crazy" --and those are only the comments I remember! Thank you fall weather for providing me with the opportunity to see what else people are going to say about these boots. If you want to think up some clever adjectives, go ahead and leave them in the comments.....

jealous. That's my word. It's still too hot here for boots. . . even cute ones like those.

I LOVE the picture of the ranch - wow! That sky is amazing.

How about the word rococo to describe your fabulous boots? I love the picture of the Ranch too. I'm stealing it from you.

Rococo....I like it

Ditto on the ranch picture. Wow, that's the most spectacular sky I have ever seen!
I'm speechless about the boots, except that they are "memorable" and will always remind me of you. If I passed you on the street, I'm sure I would say something totally unoriginal, such as "cute boots".
