I had just struggled out of my gumboots, was rubbing my calves where the tops of the boots chafed, noted that my socks were damp because my feet sweat enclosed in all that rubber but was thinking, in spite of all those drawbacks, how wonderfully comfortable the wellies were.
And they did!
My feet slipped into and out of them easily.
And I would find that my feet did not sweat.
And my calves did not chafe.
... the family is ready to step out.....
I went even further with this pair and cut them down to the next line. The tiny clothespins were a gift from a son who saw them in New York and got them for me because he knows I love hanging laundry out on a clothesline to dry and that I use wooden pins with words written on them. Stacked meaning in an object makes it more and more worthwhile.
