John's summer hobby is golf -- and in the winter, he cuts wood. This year -- his hobby has turned into a full time job. Which is more like a survival contest, really...This winter has been so bitter cold -- John spends many hours working with wood -- just to keep the house warm.
The muck boots he had been using created a problem because the boot top rubbed so hard against his skin -- he had bloody shins. Of course, his legs were so frozen, he didn't feel anything...Ugh...
So-- John got a new pair of boots with much softer tops. AND they're rated to 40 BELOW zero.
When it's this cold, he likes flannel-lined jeans....but the legs are too thick to tuck into his new boots.
NOT TO WORRY -- I CAN SEW...
|The first step was to cut off the legs of his flannel-lined jeans...|
|The new skinny legs are actually two layers...one flannel and another black polar fleece...|
|And this was important -- I sewed the new leg bottom WRONG sides together - so John wouldn't feel a seam.|
