Yesterday’s (well, now it’s the day before yesterday’s, but…whatever) post raised some questions (and some concerns), so rather than respond in the post’s comments, I’ll do a post to clear things up.
First, let’s address the shattering of several readers’ illusions of WT. OK, so while I don’t wear the uniform, I do have one, although I prefer denim jeans to moleskins (as does everyone under 95 years old), and I don’t own an oilskin because not only are they outrageously expensive, they stink (seriously, those things are rank!). I’ll not getting dressed up for you, but I will show you a picture…
I mostly wear this as safety type clothing when I’m doing work around the place or getting firewood. And I do wear them a lot in winter, but I still normally wear a baseball cap.
One other thing I should mention, I don’t wear R.M.Williams boots as they are also way too expensive since the yuppies in the city started wearing them and they took on brand-name worship status. I prefer Rossi boots, they are better made and are much cheaper. As for the design of the boot, not many people realise this, but the reason they are designed this way i.e. elastic sides (R.M Williams is credited with coming up with the original design) is so that your foot can slip out of the boot if you get thrown from a horse and you get caught up in the stirrup.
Now to address a few points:
I like a man in uniform.
Then this may be just what you’re looking for.
“Was that a wild pig then?” asks the citified/suburban/urban fringe American lass?
Yes is was a Wild pig, they are hunted in the mountains about 10 miles from here, and my place is on the way to the chillers.
Molly are you kidding me?? Google it!
Looks like something chomped on its neck. What would have done that? Pig shooters or animals?
Actually, when I had a closer look (when I took the photos), I noticed that it had been butchered. My guess is that someone saw it there and cut off some meat for their dogs, Brett agrees.
And please enlighten us. Just how do dog’s balls vary from cat’s balls?
Kila, think size.
Well, I must say, thw WordPress editor is even better than the TypePad editor that used to work properly. For the next few days (at least) I’ll be posting on this blog. I think I’ll change the Feedburner feed to this blog so that if you have subscribed, you shouldn’t have to make any changes. Disregard that, I tried but I dont’ think I succeeded.
