the wax on their boots. In olden days to get a spit-shine, one would apply layers of wax to one's boots. Some of the members here still prefer a well polished boot, while others prefer the oiled look. I have seen a platoon of Marines stand at attention long enough to have their shoes turn opaque with melted wax. We are in for more cold weather and can only look forward to the hot steamy days of summer. Groundhog, you are not welcome as the flowers of spring.
