The Art of Skiing

Or SHEEing, as it should be pronounced.  I love to go skiing at least a few times a year.  I often think of this old Disney cartoon when I'm on the slopes.  I must have seen this 100 times when I was a kid.

...the very pants I was about to return

  I had to return the Rugby corduroy mallard critter pants.  What a shame!  They were almost perfect.  Corduroy, Critters, the waist and length were good; but they fit like tights.  Corduroy leggings they were.  Am I getting too old for these brands aimed at young people?  Maybe, maybe not.  But I have been shopping at Lands' End and L.L. Bean more often.
  The bright side is now I have the money back from the pants.  And the money was from my mammy to buy X-mas gifts for myself.  I can't let her down now can I?  And I need another pair off shoes like a hole in the head.
  But, I do need a new pair of boat shoes.  They're my 3 season go to shoe.  I wear socks with my boat shoes when it's cold outside.  I especially think that rag wool socks look great with boat shoes.  And I know that Sperry makes winter boat shoes and high top boat shoes; so maybe you can buy them for me.
  Hey Sperry, can you make a boat shoe with a red brick sole but a regular leather upper (not suede)?  Thanks.  I'm afraid of ruining the suede.
  So I'm going with the Authentic Original Boat Shoe, again, but in the classic brown color this time.  The Sahara color has served me well, but it's always good to switch things up.

I've also ordered the Bass Brockton in white nubuck from Piperlime.  I've been debating getting white bucks because it takes a lot confidence and style to pull them off.  They were on sale so I bit, and if there's anyone I know who can pull it off, it's me.
I always think of this Seinfeld clip when I return pants.
