I did manage to get some things cleaned up. I came up with a solution to my-boots-in-the-middle-of-the-floor-can-never-find-them-in-the-dark-closet problem. I stuck cup hooks on the closet door and hung the boots up on them. His boots on the left, hers on the right (those teal tops are 18 inch shafts).
I love my 2 pairs of bronc boots that I ride in, cowboy heel and all. They are split quite low in the front and back so they slip off before they get hung up, thus the name bonc boots. Saved me at least once from a big wreck.
The holes in the top make it easy to hang on the hook. The other boots I had to run a flexible wire through to hang them but it seems to work. I'll tell you after this week if it's too big a pain to do that. For now I'm pretty pleased with myself.
That pink stick leaning against the wall is my cow-poker that I won as a door prize at the Ladies Livestock Lessons. Not that I ever poke cows. My tool of choice (my rope) is a little longer (45 feet).
