Boots required for GoY Winter Wellie Olympics.


As we now have some snow and it is soooo cold, training just has to be done in these!

And Hubby got me to take this to prove, despite cold and snow, he got down on the ground to get the photo of the furry ‘wellies’. True dedication for a good cause!

LOL....No, he was actually saying 'why am I sitting on this freezing ground taking photo's of your boots? I must be more nuts than you are'!! Or should that be more potty.....

Wow, these are some very impressive wellies !
Hubby is a very dedicated GoY Olympian.
Would he like to volunteer as one of our official photographers for the Winter Games ?
He looks to be the type of Hardy Perennial we need. :o)

LOL TT, he says he is certainly not a little weed! And I am sure I can persuade him to join our GoY band of Olympians as a photographer. We may have to provide a waterproof mat for laying/kneeling on though, or may-be just suitable trousers.
My furry boots are very old, had them about 28/30 years! But it has been so cold stood on my markets that I got them out of the wardrobe and now could not be without them! Toasty warm feet..mmmmm....

Those boots look very well-groomed :o)
I'm sure I can find hubby one of those fancy garden kneelers for him to use with his photography...
or maybe those fishing waders ? Lol. :o)

Bruno and Barney are worried your boots are made of bear skin. Can you put their minds at rest please?

I love your fluffy boots! I had a dog that was that colour and that hairy, When he went out in the snow, it made little balls of snow that stuck to his hair, his legs were so short, he soon got to the stage when he coulldn't walk he was so "balled up", he had to go in warm water in the kitchen sink, to have them melted off him. It didn't put him off, he loved the snow, it got him so excited,he was Tibeten
Love of snow must have been in his genes.

Oh, B & B they are most definitely not bear skin! Please do not fear, I am not walking around in your ancestors!
They do cause a lot of comments to be made....half woman, half you know your legs need shaving? :)

Marge, would that be a Tibetan terrier? I have a friend with one, such a great character, hairy dogs always look fun characters!

Why, PG!! Wherever did you find a pair of Mukluks in Wales??? They are great and nice and warm. Well done. Poor hubby on the ground. What a dedicated hubby he is.

What a great name Gilli ~ Mukluks!! I have had them so long all I can remember is it was from a ski shop, as we were going to Austria and they were our apres-ski boots. They certainly do the job of keeping you warm!

LOL PG. I would think they do keep your feet warm. I think Mukluk is an Native Alaskan word. Either that or its an Inuit word.
