Wimberly Town

So...Rudy made it. I will announce that right out of the gate. Sherry (the park owner) said he barked a few times here and there but other than that he was ok noise wise. He did nothing naughty inside either. He did not chew anything or do anything weird. What I have realized through the course of the day was this... before today he did not even know what separation anxiety was. Now he does. The next time we try to leave I don't think it will be quite as pretty. I think he will freak out. Time will tell.

Anyway... we had a good time in Wimberly. The market was pretty quiet, only about 40% of the vendors were there and open but it was fun to walk through. We did not buy anything but I saw a few things that I will remember for potential Christmas gifts.

We ate at the Wimberly Diner... both had the migas which were pretty good although I was missing some sort of chile sauce on it. After we ate we headed out to check out a shop called The Wild West Store. They specialize in vintage boots. We spent about an hour in there rooting through the 400 some pairs of boots looking to see if we found any we could not live without. We almost left empty handed but I spotted a totally nuts pair of boots out front as we were leaving and told Billy he had to try them on. They fit him dead on. When I say totally nuts... I mean... Totally Nuts. They are a roper toe (which means the toe is rounded, not pointy) and are super beat up and broken in. The thing about them is this...




Yeah... they're green. They are grreeeeennnnnnnn. I think they are stupid cool. Not for everyone obviously, but if Billy is going to wear boots (anyone who really knows him can attest to the fact that he is weird about shoes) he may as well wear these. He looks ridiculous somehow in boots with a pointy toe and he also wants a pair that it does not matter if he slaughters them with paint or hot sauce or whatever may land on them through th course of the day. These fit the bill. They fit the Billy to be more accurate. I am sure they will result in plenty of sidelong glances... but it is about time Billy shakes up his fashion scene.

Those are some boots! I would like to see a picture of Billy wearing them...preferably before any hot sauce accidents.

OMG, I just went to that boot website. I am one day going to walk into the front door of that shop and buy some boots! The fact that I could possibly find cowboy boots with flames or animal prints or stars or a little bit of everything is incredible. I'm definitely having some shoe envy right now...

Girl... you would probably need oxygen in there. There are lots of animal print boots... zebra, leopard, etc. They even have 'em with cactus and crap like that on them. Pink, purple, red, metallic gold... you name it... it can happen.

If Michelle goes to that boot shop I want to be present to see her blast into a million pieces. Michelle....go to the Anderson Bean website and look at the gallery. They are the maker of Billys new coolio boots. It will mess you up.

I just had to comment that I love the fact that you have an ad on your blog for a $9.00 pave rhinestone rattlesnake necklace.

Must be something left over from the Sue Ellen Ewing era.
