    Hehehehe...glad you like it.
    I wanted to put some of them in your photo...but I didn't have enough time to match up the "Television grain" prevalent in the old shows photos with your clean and clear photo.
    So I took the quick and easy path making you television-grainy and inserting you into their photo...
    I should have matched the skin-tones better though.
    I'll do better next time when I have more time...
    :D:cool:

    They are the 16" Lineman's boots from Carolina Shoe Company. I had a pair of those when I worked for the NC Forest Service back in 1976 and loved them. I've wanted another pair ever since, but just never got one ... until a couple days ago. Great boots, well constructed, comfortable, and American made.

    Our "adventure" today. There was ice on the trees on Mount Mitchell today. It was a cold ride, but a fun ride (and that's what it's all about).

    Hey, Big Man! What size hat would fit such a noble crown? Could be that I have 2 hats (NIB) that might fit. If so, I will ship to you as gifts from one Tarheel to another. Both are too large for me but are too wonderful not to be worn by someone that can appreciate them. Thoughts?

    I was honored to be given two very nice new hats from a (new) good friend. I put one of them to good use today on a hike into the Linville Gorge.

    My four year old grandson and I had great fun on a hike today. He's a fedora wearer as well.

    It's a '27 Bugatti (kit car built on a 1970 VW frame/motor).

    It's a fun ride and does look cool. I get a lot of looks riding in that car.

    We had another grand adventure riding across the mountain today. We covered about 100 miles, mostly on Forest Service dirt roads.
