: : : I know people know me as a cowboy boot guy and I do wear them everyday, but Monday I needed to do a serious cut back of an old rhododendron. I had to get down under it to saw off large sections near the base. It was an excuse to wear my favorite old hip waders. A couple pictures taken after I was done.
