This is my third pair of Carolina brand engineer boots. I wore the first one out all over this country. The second pair was just getting broken in when I lost them to Katrina. This is my third pair - I've had them for a little over three years and they're now perfect.
I never kick off my boots right there in the middle of the room outside the bedroom, but I did today for some reason. A few minutes later I turned around and saw this photo (not the first time I've taken pictures of my boots). Sometimes the light and the objects just give themselves up without any work on your part.
