Independence Day And My Boots Are Healed!!!

Many of you have noted concern about my poor boots.
I've pulled out the best invention ever...
Duck Tape...
and have no more holes.
They may not be water proof
but they are dog approved
and
good for another ten years.
Happy Independence Day!

You're part way to becoming a "Maritimer" with Duct Tape on yer boots. A little piece of plastic bag across the tear or hole and then the duct tape would make them waterproof. he,he
Have a wonderful July 4th - we will walk across border into our nesting town of Calais, USA and partake in the festivities today and fireworks on the river tonight. Approx 7 min walk from the house. Main street gets closed today and filled with vendors, sidewalk sales, etc. Lots of excitement going on. Happiness to you n yours :)

I'm a great lover of duct tape and have two rolls of it in the kitchen. I use it for anything at all. I am glad you were able to fix those boots, because they look like they can give you a few more years of service. It is a small flaw in the design, though, that they tear so easily there.

WINNER! Look like brand new . . .

Oh, I don't know. If you duct tape them a little more, I think they will be waterproof. ;-)

Great job, Gail. Have a wonderful weekend! :-)
