These tough boots are the supreme in the industry, top-of-the-line, with prices commensurate with their quality and USA-handmade construction.
I strive to lead a gentle life and be kind. That has been my guiding principle or “life value” as long as I can remember. Even before I remember learning what kindness was, my family told me that I just was. Kind.
Here are some thoughts from personal insights and reflection…
Last week, volunteers from my fire department were deployed to help with rescues and back-filling support for a sister fire department in North Carolina, in one of the hardest-hit areas affected by a recent devastating hurricane.
I was not among those who volunteered to deploy… been there, done that. Not necessarily in this location, but over a span of two decades, I have deployed for response to provide support for hurricanes, floods, and other calamities wrought by Mother Nature. This hard, dirty, and ugly work is better suited for the younger generation.

More explanation follows…
Yesterday, I attended a memorial service for a man who I worked with closely during my career when I was at my longest-term employer where I worked for 20 years. I had grown close to this gentleman during our 20-years of collaboration on dozens, if not hundreds, of joint projects used nationwide by millions.
During the years we worked together, we…
Call me old-school. Seriously, like “stone-ages school.” I remain about the last man on Earth who deliberately chooses not to use SMS text services to communicate. Why?
Many of my loyal blog followers know that I ride a Harley and having had a crash but suffered no abrasions because I was wearing proper gear, I have been a strong advocate for “ATGATT” — “All The Gear, All The Time.”
However, when conditions in the swamp…
