Today, Monday, marks a holiday in the United States. I have the day off from work. It also marks the end of “leather weekend.” While I did not attend any of the Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend events, I did have some time yesterday to take some photos of me in a new-to-me pair of Dehner patrol boots that arrived on Friday.
I was going to take a short ride on my Harley yesterday to break these boots in, but it was too darn cold, so I just leathered up, posted photos to my website, and enjoyed my partner’s company.
What’s special about these boots, and don’t I have enough Dehner Boots already?
These Dehner patrol boots are made of all leather. I chose the Voyager leather, which is significantly less expensive than European Calf Leather which used to be the only all-leather Dehner boots available. I arranged a good buy of these boots.
Yeah, okay, I have a number of pairs of Dehner boots which I have acquired for many years. Some of my older pairs don’t fit me all that well, but I still really like how they look and the style.
I can’t wait to break these boots in properly with a good ride on the Harley, but until the weather breaks, that will have to wait. Meanwhile, I broke in these boots (manually, at first–see this post), then I wore them while wearing them all day Sunday, starting with taking some senior pals to church, then running some errands, and then taking some pics for a photo shoot for my website. After that — snuggle time with my partner (with my boots on!)
Today, I will be in work boots and jeans while doing a major home safety make-over for a sweet senior couple to whom I was introduced recently. I have recruited several friends, including some pros (carpenters and electricians). We will spend the day as a day of service commemorating the values of Dr. Martin Luther King, whose birthday is the reason for this holiday. I am putting my time off to good use (and no longer terrorizing the ‘hood by running around in full leather LOL!)
Life is short: enjoy your boots!
