My Kingdom for a winter Boot!

Winter boots are hard to find. I live in Canada, and was looking for a good winter boot to wear that looked chic and could handle minus 20 plus conditions.

I do have some winter boots here. Reiker is one of pair of them. Nice looking boot, but I do find they are a little cool in minus 15 C conditions. I have Columbia boots which are great for the cold, cold weather, but they are mostly for going in the deep snow. They have a real high run to them, whereas the Reikers just cover my ankles. My dad wore these kind of boots of the years. The Columbia boots have a warm felt insert inside, and is good for snow showing and such. But they sure look ugly, but do the job!

They have Mukluk boots with a strip of fur around the ankles on the outside, look really cute, which are not for me. I can understand some people liking them, but they are just a little to high past the ankle for me.

I tried a new pair of Martina winter boots. I think that was the name. They were black leather waterproof, sleek and light, dual zippers on the sides for a fast slide on. It looked much like the Riekers I had here at the house. These were made in Canada. Only problem was the size was not there. I tried on a different size, but found on side was a little loose. I declined to by the .5 of an inch size larger.

I do have a pair of sneakers. I have wore them in minus 30 before... I always found them to be fairly warm, but they do not go above they ankles... In high school, we used to wear them to school anyways. At least, I did all the time.. And they are just as warm, I find, in minus 10 or 15 as any low cut winter boot..

I will continue the search, for a good winter boot. Till next time... No news on the book front..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
