...and a fantastic pair of tall pull-on chore boots that are light-weight and have high-tech insulation to keep my feet warm and toasty in extreme cold weather!
My Valentine's present was a pair of Bogs® chore boots, purchased at the Farmers' Co-Op in Manhattan, KS, when we there earlier this week. We had lunch with a friend who highly recommended them and said her feet stayed toasty warm while doing chores and her daily walk. So we hied ourselves to the Co-op and tried on boots. When I balked at the price tag, deciding I could make do with my old boots while looking for a less expensive replacement pair, Bill decided I should have the Bogs® for Valentine's Day. He also bought a pair for himself.
You're thinking wryly, "Gee, what a romantic devil!" But, if you check out my Home and Author Bio pages, you'll find out his gift to me after our first date was a head of broccoli. Not just any head of broccoli, but the biggest one I had ever seen—larger in diameter than a dinner plate! The presentation was made at my office and my coworkers were impressed, proclaiming "He's a keeper!"
As stated in my bio, my next favorite gift was a shiny, red hay hook. Bill was about to leave on a work-related trip for several days and I would have to feed bales of hay to the cattle. As the bales were too heavy for me to lift, I used my new hay hook to drag them into the corral, then cut the wires and throw pieces of the bales into the feeding tank.
I don't wear much jewelry, don't wear cologne at all, my favorite chocolate is Dove Dark Chocolate and I prefer eating a nice meal at home to going out and waiting half the night for a table. My needs are simple and tend toward the practical, which makes me hard to buy gifts for. But Bill nailed it with the boots, just as he did years ago with the broccoli, then the hay hook. My farmer!
Here are my new boots:
