The last member of the tribe! This boot came from the half-log shown on the left side of the introductory post. I got caught with my design being a bit short , so the boot was styled and carved with the grain going up and down the vamp instead of left to right lengthwise along the boot as shown for boots 1, 2, and 3.
I like the little branch on the left side of the boot vamp. It reminded me of Bogart’s comment, “Here’s looking at you, kid!” Still have 40 inches of plum log left but that will be for next year.
I’m looking forward to 2017 as there are two events that will excite me! First, my favourite will be to see Donald Trump becoming the next President of the U.S.A.! The swamp will be drained! Hopefully that will happen in Canada too!
Good luck President Trump!

Second, Mark August 21, 2017 on your calendar and plan your holiday in the central part of the U.S.A., to witness a total eclipse of the sun! I think Denver, Colorado would be a good place to be at that time or maybe at Mount Rushmore to see how the shadows develop during the eclipse! Yikes! What a spectacular event!

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!
Roman the Bootman!

The usual fine FOOTWEAR!

If you go to Mount Rushmore; swing east on the way back north and see the Terry Redlin museum at Watertown SD.

It is almost worth a special trip by itself. When I was there the admission was even free! I can not guarantee that though. A real treasure of rural themed art!

Now you can celebrate, properly The New Year evening with you wife as you accomplished what you set out to make out of that Plum tree. Color is sure nice and the direction of the grain sets it off.

A very Happy New Year to you and your wife. Hope we can visit again in the New Year.
