Homage to my old boots

We completely cleaned out our garage a couple of weeks ago to make space for a video shoot of our band. Tucked away amidst the years of accumulated clutter were my old Santa Rosa Brand work/hiking boots. I’m pretty sure I bought them in the very early 80s, and I obviously put a whole lot of miles on them before they were retired to the garage. Now, they just look cool.

I couldn’t resist a little pastoral treatment for the old waffle stompers.

Admiring the accoutrements

After rehearsal today, for R&R, we took a long drive out towards the coast. Along the way we stopped at the Union Hotel for some beer and a pizza. The bar was fairly empty, but the beer choices were good and the pizza was excellent! This guy was watching a baseball game. I was admiring his accoutrements.
