Thoughts on craftsmanship (and a request)
More and more, I am finding my mind attaching itself to “Proper Manufacture” of things. Lately, that has been more and more foot oriented.
When Jack-jack ate my boots last year, I went out and bought a replacement pair that didn’t last 6 months. (made in China, of course) By that time, I was on the road, and money was even tighter. Throw in mechanical issues and the like (of which the graciousness of donors made my life much easier to handle) and, well, I am still running with cheap-ass chinese made sumpin-r-nudders that resemble boots.
I am looking at finding replacements. Not cheap replacements either. More something that I know I can wear for years (like my last boots, wore ’em for near 15 years and only needed resoled once). Money well spent, unlike the money I have spent on the crap I am currently wearing on my back paws. (and this or similar is what I am looking at)
I guess you could say this is a plea for small donations. I hate to ask, but with current trends in my income, scrapin’ by is a nice addage.
If you can donate $5 to the paypal account, it will all add up so that I can put something decent on my feet. And with all the ground pounding I do with the Voodoo, it will be a blessing for me.(edited to remove the offending company. Further donations are on hold for the time being. A huge thank you goes out to WonderDawg, China, RDP, Soffitrat, and a ghost for their generosity. If the alien does what I think he intends, a HUGE gratuitous Voodoo lick is headed his way.)
