  2. “We’ve all suffered from Saggy Boot Syndrome.”

    Hey, I’ve been under a lot of stress at work, besides, this has never happened before.

  3. Petraeus’ hoochie mama found a good cure for sagging boots.

    She lifts and separates.

  4. Them little tiny screw covers will cost, after taxes, about a BUCK-Fifty for 3 !!!!

    Cover just 30 little screw heads and kiss a $10 dollar bill & change, good bye.

    Warning: Never, ever, mention this to your doctor!

  5. ^ If you’re gonna make your own kitchen cart out of wood and misc pieces of metal things instead of paying World Market $400 for one you won’t mind spending $10 on screw covers to make it look even better than theirs!

  6. Besides, if you’re gonna use old magazines for boot stands you’ve saved over $39947676554775.00 from not buying 75886 of those fancy ones to protect yur boots:)

  7. Good Morning Col J,

  8. You never asked.

    (Grainger is awesome. Exxpensive but awesome. See also: McMaster-Carr. Not just solutions to things you know about, but for things you never knew you needed. This is how you get a $600 hammer–the contractor needs it now, orders overnight delivery, adds standard mark up + service fee to govt. agency, who adds bureaucratic overhead and voila, a $9.99 hammer bought by the government for $600)

    Look them up on Amazon and maybe save the Government style price.

  9. Key to a long, happy life?
    Do not, repeat, not start leafing through hardware and tool catalogs.
    That way lies danger and obsession.
    The trap is that it’s not called an addiction, it’s called a hobby.
    As yet, there is no cure.
    Give generously.
    (What? [lowers eyes] Yeah, I dropped a wad at Lowe’s yesterday. I … it … but I can quit any time I want! Look, it’s not me! It’s for the new house. It … it needs a fix.]

    Re: boots
    I used rolled-up newspapers in my riding top & field boots after letting ‘em air out for a while. It was supposed to help ‘em dry out, too. Dunno if that really worked. I also used the $ aluminum boot inserts. So, what was the difference? Wellp … $, I reckon.
    (What? Nah, nuthin’ in the Chippewa motorcycle boots. They’ll stand up by themselves, if they know what’s good for ‘em.)

  10. I’ve never needed to cover a screw…

    But I did get a pair of boots that came with little blow-up inserts. Those boots went to the paddocks and the little inserts went to the Good Boots. I think a pool noodle – cut to size- might be cheaper since I see those magazines selling for $5 -$10 at the market check-out. I have no interest in magazines but a pool noodle is about $1. Maybe less at end of summer sales….

  11. mech, I just used em for the example/description.

    I actually found ‘em at Home Depot looking for cool stuff with which to embellish my kitchen cart that JRs gonna make me for my birthday:)

  12. Doug, I empathize wholeheartedly. ‘Cept now i no longer have the boundary of “hobby”, my toys also fall under “business”.

    The boot idea sounded interesting and I was just given a box of old magazines so I thought I’d give it a try:

    I’ll let you know how it works.

  13. ^ LOL!!!!

    Ditto for Cabela’s catalog.

    Comment by apotheosis — November 14, 2012 @ 9:21 am

  15. ^ we went to Cabela’s last week end for our “date” to buy ammo.

    Came out with 4 boxes of ammo and two rain suits that were originally $50 for $17 a piece. Needed ‘em too!

  16. (Sitting here quietly looking at and thinking about HeadMissy’s boots…)

  17. I go to Cabela’s the way some folks go to Church. And for pretty much the same reason. Thy bow and thy rifle, they comfort me.

    Got some nice footwear there, too. Tho they don’t have these.

    Bet they’d coordinate well with this. I’m thinking the “Nobunaga Oda” pattern.

  18. You have to get your boots puffed into shape.

  20. Okay, there’s also this old one:

    (What? No, don’t have the kitties any more. Still have the boots, though.)

  21. Piss on all that shit.

    I have a genuine Australian hat stretcher.

    Comment by JoeBandMember® — November 14, 2012 @ 9:49 pm

  22. What about the thigh-highs with the six-inch spike heels that lace up the back?

    Oh, wait.

    Probably shouldn’t have mentioned those.
