because it would make life easier for those I love (and myself). I suppose I would also enjoy the extra spare time that a lottery win would bring me.
Anyway the point of this post is that I've been wearing these boots backwards and forwards to work over the last year and as you can see, they have had better days. I ordered a nice new pair off the internet a few weeks ago and when they arrived I reluctantly retired the old pair. To be honest though, despite the holes in the bottom I still don't really want to throw them away. They are far more comfortable than the new pair (despite the wet feet I get when it rains), but that's not the real reason I can't bin them. After all; they do the job and I can't quite get it out of my mind that somewhere out there in the world is a person who would be glad of a pair of boots like these, even with holes in.
