I Got the Boot… Three Times

I Got the Boot… Three Times

Sometimes I’m not sure if I get on some sort of unconscious jag that makes me seek out groupings of things or if I just happen to be moving across a sticky thread of the universal web that keeps putting them in my path.

What am I talking about?


Are you superstitious? Do you think things happen in threes? Well, over the last 3 months I’ve had 3 big boots come into my life.

First there was a visit to the Haines’ Shoe HouseΒ which is decidedly boot-like and all sorts of awesome.

Then on a pitstop at LL Bean in Freeport, Maine I saw the giant Bean boot.

Boot number three came rather serendipitously to complete the trifecta of footwear.

A few weekends ago I rode past the ruins of a place once called Fairy Tale Forest in Oak Ridge, New Jersey. Behind the fence of what is now a self-storage facility there was a giant boot-house was being refurbished.

You can go a whole lifetime without seeing any giant boots. Then whammo! they’re everywhere.

What does it all mean?

  1. A kick in the pants is coming?

    You need new boots?

    You are just destined to share these oddities with the world. And I am happy for that. πŸ™‚

  2. Nice trifecta.

    Is the universe trying to give you a boot in the a$$? That seems to be the theme.

    If they are, I’m glad…….. great pics.

    You have the greatest luck finding really cool stuff. I think you are correct – the universe draws you to the cool things. Maybe cool attracts cool. πŸ™‚

  3. I love the boots! I’ve seen only one boot-like house at either Adventure Land or Santa’s Village when I was a kid. I believe the old woman who lived in a shoe was its inhabitant. Ha-ha.!

  4. Hmmmm. Reminds me of the guys on “American Pickers” and their big ol’ boot that they are trying to sell!

    Must be a trend…

    What a “kick”!
