Our boots went boot-scootin'...

...but with someone else's feet in them.

The Clovis Rodeo is always the last weekend in April, and for the last couple of years, Valerie has borrowed my beloved red cowboy boots. I love these boots. Love.Them. I may never wear them again, and while I am the first person in this household to donate/throw out things that will never be used again, such will never be the fate of these boots.

So...my boots...on Valerie's feet and off to the Clovis Rodeo.

And then our next day neighbor, Kyle, knocked on the door and wondered if Mark had any cowboy boots he could borrow to wear to the Clovis Rodeo. What size? 10 1/2? Bingo.

So...Mark's boots...on Kyle's feet and off to the Clovis Rodeo.

Turns out Valerie and Kyle have friends in common, so they met at the rodeo to take this picture....

...in our boots. Having a good time. With someone else. I'm afraid that now our boots are gonna want to keep on walkin' and not come back.

  1. What a cute/funny story!

    Another thing we have in common... boots... but mine are brown suedish, and pretty well-worn, though I haven't had 'em on in years. Yeah, they're OLD... got 'em in Colorado on our honeymoon. :-)

  5. Those red boots are awesome! And it's great that they got to go out even if it wasn't with you. They were probably feeling neglected.
