IT Technicians Feet

All of this wet weather and the subsequent return of the farm to it’s traditional muddy state has reminded me that I was not born a farmer. I can get as many animals as I want, put up barns, coops, feedbins, I can pull lambs from sheep and calves from cows at will, sow a field of forage beans, reap the years corn harvest and take home the top trophy at the tractor gymkhana but I’ll never be rid of my IT Technicians Feet. I know this because of my wellies – if I wear them for more than an hour I’m reduced to hobbling about like an over-ambitious coal walker. It is very painful and makes me very irritable. Okay, even more irritable than my usual uber-ornery self.

Is there a cure? Is there a solution? Do Cloudwalkers do a wellie or should I brush up on the old ‘have you tried rebooting it?’ spiel, hang up my overalls and head back into the office? I don’t know, but if anyone can come up with a fix please write it on a postcard and send it to The Wet Foot Farmer, Kingsville Farm, etc etc.

  1. Dunlops are comfortable, especially with thermal insoles. Great for fishing and farming. You can get them at the Port Hood Ceilidh Co-op. Just a thought?

    does this means your boots are leaking ? or your back is done for ?
    maybe something by Dr School’s will work , cheaper at walmart

  3. I could knit you some welly socks- they are traditional for wearing with wellies and thick and should cushion your feet. Pink or blue?

    • Could you do pink and blue stripes so I could wear them with ambivalence? Actually yhrt ecolour will revert to clay brown in no time so any old bobbin ends will do!
