More boot weather

I rarely travel with cowboy boots as they’re a pain to take off at security and too large to fit into a small carry-on bag. So I wear them when I can, which is today. Here’s a pair of back cut American alligator boots (with calf shafts) by Lucchese. Note the alligator inlay on the shafts. These were also acquired on eBay.

To the right of the boot on the left (my right foot) you can see a copy of Eleven Days in AugustMatthew Cobb’s fine book on the liberation of Paris in 1944.

    Of a certain age tells us that is Dinah Shore. I know she had shows on TV for years and I think, so did Ernie Ford.

    Thanks for the plug jerry! Oddly enough, I have been riffling through Eleven Days in August this morning for a pal and caught my great praise for your fine editing skills, which improved the prose! – MC
