    They look nice. I got a pair of Sorel boots last year and I've been happy with them. I was looking for something that would be good for walking, warm and waterproof. I do have a pair of tall boots...

    I spent a productive 1.5 hours in the cellar today. Cleaning our cellar is like shoveling sh*t against the tide, but at the moment I have at least the illusion of progress. :laff:

    Tybee: I'm unfamiliar with the brand but you will have to let us know how you like them. That's certainly a good price for boots.

    Frugal-one: I believe that was the old shingles vaccine, and that is why people are being encouraged to get the new one even if they had the old one already. The new one is far more effective.

    I'm so sorry JP. It's the right thing to do, but it certainly isn't easy. That's great that your vet will come to your home. Those are two beautiful boys.

    I am on board with this. I have a good life and will try to make the best of it while I am here, but life is definitely not a gift in my opinion and I am glad I have not inflicted it on anyone else....

    Always nice to hear from you, Lhamo. Glad retirement is going well. It will be 2 years for me on 12/1, although my retirement was a lot less early than yours.

    That's OK; we are used to looking at IL's pictures upside-down. Sounds like a good volunteer gig.

    I've worn glasses since I was 7 years old, so when I needed reading glasses, I just went to progressives. My reading glasses are always conveniently located right on my face. :)
