I love the felt insoles. I just bought the boots because they were too cheap to pass up (it looks like they have gone up now) and don't have much use for them since they are not waterproof, so last year I took two of the felt insoles and put them in another pair of boots that were lacking. It greatly improved them in both comfort and warmth. I'd like to find a stash of just the surplus insoles. They are so much better than these foam ones today that break down with that slick layer of fabric that peels off and is so annoying. And the felt just molds itself to your foot after a while.

While you are there, you might also look for some of the original wool boot liners that were used with them. Even the modern Goretex boot liners are quite cheap in flea markets here. You might find a use for them. They make decent houseshoes themselves. They could even be worn to bed since they have no sole. Really, I would look at any milsurp cold weather gear while you are there. I find it to be one of the most phenomenal bargains for the quality.

Off topic, but have you ever seen the US military old-style extreme cold weather "mukluk" boots? Oddly, the only insulation in them is two wool felt insoles about 3/8 inch thick in each boot. The boot is made from light cotton duck with a relatively light rubber sole vulcanized to it. They are tall, but you could easily modify them and they may work well for you. Last I saw, they were worth about $12-20 since there's not much interest in them.

My first thought was, "I've never heard of a urinal having a sexual preference, but I fully support your urinal's lifestyle choice whatever it is." Hah!

In a world of donkeys everyone thinks they're a tiger



I'm not so sure we're not to the point where most think they're the lion, lol!

The donkey said to the tiger:

- "The grass is blue".

The tiger replied:

- "No, the grass is green."

The discussion heated up, and the two decided to submit him to arbitration, and for this they went before the lion, the King of the Jungle.

Already before reaching the forest clearing, where the lion was sitting on his throne, the donkey began to shout:

- "His Highness, is it true that the grass is blue?".

The lion replied:

- "True, the grass is blue."

The donkey hurried and continued:

- "The tiger disagrees with me and contradicts and annoys me, please punish him."

The king then declared:

- "The tiger will be punished with 5 years of silence."

The donkey jumped cheerfully and went on his way, content and repeating:

- "The Grass Is Blue"...

The tiger accepted his punishment, but before he asked the lion:

- "Your Majesty, why have you punished me?, after all, the grass is green."

The lion replied:

- "In fact, the grass is green."

The tiger asked:
- "So why are you punishing me?".

The lion replied:

- "That has nothing to do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green.

The punishment is because it is not possible for a brave and intelligent creature like you to waste time arguing with a donkey, and on top of that come and bother me with that question."

The worst waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who does not care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on arguments that don't make sense...

There are people who, no matter how much evidence and evidence we present to them, are not in the capacity to understand, and others are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and all they want is to be right even if they are not.

When ignorance screams, intelligence is silent. Your peace and quiet are worth more.

I usually ignore them or cut off the branch with the nest, but it seems they cause many more problems where you live. All proper safety concerns in mind, I know people in my area who eliminate the nests with a match or lighter.
