Got my boots back from Red Wing. Sent them for a re-sole, general clean up, and conditioning. Here’s some before and afters. An amazing job and worth every penny. Ready to last another decade of hard wear.

Note to self: It’s not enough to make the list. You have to take the list. You have to look at the list. You have to trust the list. You have to work off the list. You have to ignore and or defer all that is not on the list. Capture the important incoming for the next list.

You can’t pay your respects, if you don’t have any. If you are empathetically bankrupt, you lack the currency to pay the expected emotional debts. Better to stay away than to face all that you owe with the empty pockets of your soul.
