Rainboots. Who lives in Seattle without them?
Well, me, for the last 7 years or so. Dodging water, soaked socks. Not good.
Until 2 days ago when I stepped into Lambs Ear in Fremont.
It was one of those moments. You see the item in the window. You look again. You want to say yes.
You walk in, take a look, and the sales lady says: "I just marked those down this morning."
Done and done.

Aigle Boots. 150 years of happy, dry, toes.
Rubber that scuba divers use to stay dry.
Boots with a 25 year warranty. Seriously? Seriously. I'll be 54 by the time I have to give these up to wear & tear.
10 minutes later I was walking out of the store with my old shoes in the new box.
New rainboots on, ready for some deep, dark, Northwest puddles.
