Boys and their boots

A thought came to me the other day and it made me think......When I was in 1st or 2nd grade there was a boy in my class that wanted to be my boyfriend.  One day, one of his friends walks over to me, while I'm swinging, and asks me if I would "go" with his friend.   I remember ever so clearly telling this fella " He wears cowboy boots everyday and I don't like it." 

Here's the irony.......Our son absolutely loves to wear his cowboy boots everyday.  He even wears them to school with his school uniform (just picture it). Let me help you.  This is his most recent pair of boots.  He said that he and one of his friends decided that they were made of crocodile skin from Australia.  So here's the picture....

Snazzy, huh?

I was thinking about that poor little boy in elementary school was probably just like Dillon, loving his boots. So to the guy from grade school, if you're out there, I have to really say I am sorry for making fun of your boots.  Every little boy needs their cowboy boots. 

And by the way, I do not personally have anything against boots.  I see them everyday as a matter of fact.  Sometimes clean......Sometimes not.  Most of the time, not so clean.  

Take a look at our back door in the utility room.
