. I believe it would be a nicer place to live if there were properly funded Catch / Neuter / Release
programs for oft abandonded animals. And while it's well nigh a stereotype that one tosses a boot out the window at the alley cat but some treat felines left behind to fend for themselves in a more caring manner. Such is the case when people make winter shelters for feral cats
. IndyFeral's website is particularly helpful providing practical pointers on proper bedding materials. One of my favorite shelter plans is a hideaway made of sheet foam insulation
which is relatively easy to make, requiring few tools and adaptable to do right in the field. But be certain to raise it and weigh it down afterward.
What time is it? World Time Zone
will tell you - anywhere as contrasted to Greenwich Mean Time. As I type this it is almost midnight in London, England. Looking at the chart one sees quirky variants like Venezuela and Labrador, both of which post their times half-an-hour off from adjacent time zone denizens; then there's the norther hemisphere almost all of which observes Daylight Savings Time, save Iceland, New Mexico and parts of the province of Alberta. A boffo resource if you want to call someone on the other side of the planet, but don't wish to abruptly wake them up, since they might want to
toss a shoe at you.
Speaking of which, at Sock and Awe
you, too can have your chance at tossing one of your size tens [but you only get to toss it at Dubya
] in the privacy of your own home and without worrying that the local gendarmes will get to torture you for your efforts. Then again, it may depend on what telcom you use to log on to the internet, what with protected illegal surveillance and all that.
Just in case the ordinary shoe doesn't meet suit your fancy Pennagalan
and Hot Boots
selection of fetish footwear that is not to be dismissed. And for those so inclined amongst my viewers Pennegalan offers a variety of Vegetarian boots
, just as queer and kinky as the rest of their assortment. The site says that they are "...synthetic leathers, made from animal free materials and glues
...[and they are]...Approved by the UK Vegan Society
. Of the two sites, Hot Boots
offers stuff more mundane and common, workmens', biker and engineer boots; stuff that would make a gal like Elaine Miller
[not to mention a passel of gay guys into rough trade types
] happy. Says Elaine, of men's work boots
Here's something I love about all my butch boots. It's the sure-footedness, and the steadiness. It's the jingle of spurs and the steady clomp clomp sound of one's own stride echoing down an alley late at night. In contrast, high heels make a nervous ticking noise, accompanied, in my case, by a little "yeek yeek yeek" noise at the end of a night because my feet hurt.
But back to where this started, a good hefty chunky boot would be much more effective at making a mark on some pompous outgoing warlord's forehead ...make it memorable.
