Needed a few things from the supermarket and one of the first things I saw was a cowboy with jeans tucked into tall stovetop boots with mule ear pulls. First encounter we did the manly nod. Second one I spoke. Third encounter, I asked about the boots. Wow! He really opened up, telling me all about them, pointing out the blunt toe, spur ridge on the heels, etc. We had a good boot talk and I think I saw evidence of rising interest on his part. He couldn’t remember the name of the bootmaker so he asked for my name and number and said when he got home, he’d find one of their catalogs and give me the info. The only downside was that he wore a wedding ring. Sigh.
