I lost a lovely pair to mud year ago. (I love shoes) Red leathes with a little black bow. They weren't exactly "go to church shoes" but, they were so pretty. I must have had them a year (just to look at), before wearing them. Wear sensible shoes or boots and carry your lovely shoes with you. This is a great reason to buy a new bag!

Better keep on the ruby slippers, you're not in Kansas anymore, Miss Gale.

Um, El.... It's January. The snow, ice and mud has only just begun. Have some cocoa, you'll feel better.

I have dress uniforms, and various suits [black, grey, brown, dark pin-striped] with lots of ties and multiple dress shoes. My DW has nice dresses, shoes, purses.

And yet, we come here and I wear bib over-alls, boots and a straw hat. My wife wears jeans and steel-toe safety shoes [at least her employer supplies her with new red-wing safety shoes every year].

We seriously dress down now.

The second time Northern Maine Land Man took me out in the woods, he asked me, "What are you wearing, house slippers?"
I thought it an odd question, but it was another case of a man trying to communicate with a woman. I said, "Loafers"
He didn't really say anything, just ''hmmph." And through the woods we went.

I guess I have to rethink my shoes.

AliceT -

It could be a matter of man / female; however it could also be reality.

On my property to go "out in the woods" your best options are:
1. snowshoes,
2. work boots [with drainage holes and that fit tree-climbing spikes],
3. waders,
4. swimming shoes.

It depends on which section of my land you are planning on visiting and the season.

Alice T... and Forest...

I got a big chuckle out of that exchange...

mud... loafers.. seems like a scenario for shoes getting sucked off feet, if Maine mud is anything like Colorado mud or Iowa gumbo...

I tend toward keeping a pair of $3 tennies in the truck... at least I have SOMETHING on my feel that will likely stay on, and if they get too soggy/gunky/ lost... oh well... it ain't like I can't replace them for... $3.

My last pair of irrigators succumbed to rubber rot though, so I guess boots will likely be on my "replace" list this year.

around here it is adobe mud! it is as slippery as ice and it clumps onto your shoes, until they weigh at least 10 lbs. You can't imagine what its like. If you let it dry on it is as if you left your shoes in quick drying cement. The adobe was a blessing to the indians and settlers as it is a great building material. But it is awful to garden or to walk across after a rain.

How did we get here from bugs......sorry for takng that turn.
