If you live in the country, wellies are a necessity. Doesn’t matter what you call ’em: gumboots, rainboots, whatever.
You need them.
Well, I need them.
They are not a fashion item
first there’s the mud
goats, and what comes out of goats
and guinea fowl
so [ assuming I’m not wearing my cowdy boots ] a good, strong, basic, black gumboot that will last forever is the order of the day. Even the Queen knows the value of a good pair of wellies … although in my mental picture of her Majesty tramping around Balmoral, hers are possibly green … but still … y’know … practical.
what can I say?
