Where’s Enas? July 22, 2010

Posted by Mitchell in Home.

Yes, sorry for the virtual disappearing act. It is busy at work and busy at home these days. I read everybody’s stuff, but I just don’t comment much lately. It’s a character flaw, I know, and I do try and work on it. Sometimes anyway.

So a little bit of catching up with some stuff. First off – I finished my bathroom!! YES!! It took the better part of FOUR weekends but I finally finished it off last Friday. It looks fantastic, I have to say. I took pictures, but I doubt they do it justice. I’ll put them up soon anyway so stay tuned. I also got some interesting ideas about the paint I used. I haven’t tried them out yet, but I plan to this weekend.

Item two: vacation plans! I was approved for two weeks off starting two weeks from today. The Parental Units & I are doing a Road Trip from Las Vegas to Jacskson Hole in Wyoming to go see the Grand Tetons. We’re going to stop by Salt Lake City on the way up and see what the Mormons are up to. On the way back we’re gonna swing down to the lower Utah / upper Arizona boarder and check out Monument Valley national park and finally swing through the lower end of Zion national park in western Utah. It will be really nice to get out of town and this dreadful heat. I will take my camera and get lots of pictures. I’m also taking my watercolor pad and paints and hopefully there will be some time and opportunity to get a few quick ones done. I dunno. We’ll see.

Item three – a new leather lusting!  No, it’s not more Saddleback stuff.  Well, yes ok there is some of that too, but that’s not what this is about.  This is about boots!  Specifically – these boots.   I WANT.  Very much bad.  The guy who runs Saddleback has a twitter account that I follow and yesterday he said that they will have some new merchandise soon!  That day in fact!  Alas, he then changed it to today, and now it looks like it’s been pushed back to tomorrow.  Anyway, they also have a facebook account and I got to see a few pictures of the new stuff coming out.  Very cool!  And, yes I plan to buy something.  Anyway, getting back to those awesome boots.  Someone on the facebook page asked if there was a boot maker kind of on the level of Saddleback’s bags and someone replied with a link to that West Coast Shoe Compay site.  I’ve always wanted some boots like those and now I’m obsessing on them. 

I gotta go get my meds, so I’ll type at y’all some more later.

Dude, I love those boots.

Being an Orygun boy, I know that location and have been there. You need to visit and get fitted in person, then go to McMennamin’s Edgefield, get a room, and go down to the bar and drink Black Rabbit Porters until you can’t stand up. I was just there a month ago but alas, I did not not check to see if they even made BRP any more. You ought to go find out.

Well, you don’t NEED to but I would, were I you. 🙂

Hoary clap…yorling again???

Ok, I’ll give you a pass since it falls under “SHOES” 😀

3. Enas Yorl - July 22, 2010

I priced out a custom boot order for me y’all – $828 bucks!!!


It’s doable tho.

Hoary clap am I nuts for even thinking it??

4. LC Aggie Sith - July 22, 2010


DUDE….. Even I don’t go that far with shoes!!

cmblake6 - July 27, 2010

Well, darling, you’re not Filipino.

LC Aggie Sith - July 29, 2010

Smartass 😛

5. Enas Yorl - July 22, 2010

Well, no of course not for mere shoes. These are high-end boots! Completely different class of merchandise here Aggie. Surely you must agree with that!

Plus that price includes a knife pocket on the outside of the right boot! Knife! Pocket!! Nothing says “Complete Bad-Ass” like a knife pocket (complete with a Benchmade osborne knife) on your boots.

Hell, it’s actually rather reasonably priced if you think about it. Complete Bad-Assery for a mere 838 bucks! (I upgraded the lining a bit.)

Man, I really need to stop thinking about these boots.

LC Aggie Sith - July 23, 2010


For that price, it better come with RoboCop 😛

6. Nicole - July 22, 2010

Dude. I haven’t spent that much on my yorling unless I’m getting a long vacation out of the deal. The boots are sweet, but dayum, when you yorl, you yorl all in, doncha? 🙂

7. Lemur King - July 23, 2010

Is this the “New Fiscal Responsibility” thing you were going to embark upon a while back?

You’re scaring me. It’s like you’re grafting on Obama’s Spend-Ourselves-Out-of-the-Economic-Tailspin.


No, I’m just envious. I went to the Ann Arbor Art Fair today because I had to be downtown anyway. Hot, muggy, way too uncomfortable for slacks/shirt/tie, but there I was. And I saw a beautiful leather shoulder-bag-briefcase thing that I’ve seen more in Europe than here. Beautiful, solid, but supple… and $450.

I walked away quickly and never looked back lest I turn into a pillar of salt and tears. I guess I could sell either a kid or a kidney tho… hmmm.

But…but…but for that figure you could have bought another gun? 🙂

For that you coulda almost bought a Sig! You coulda bought TWO pistols, or TWO rifles.

Instead you buy foot-mittens? That don’t even shoot anything? 🙂

Why…why I bet they aren’t even deadly if you throw them at anyone!

Well, at least they came with a knife.

9. Enas Yorl - July 23, 2010

What can I say Nicole? I aquired a taste for high-end leather goods thanks to you.

Calm down McGoo! I havn’t actually bought them.


Am seriously contemplating it though. Christmas is coming up and I’ve been a very good boy this year! Yes it’s pretty early to start thinking about Christmas already but it seems that it takes them three months to make a pair of boots! Or six weeks if you’re willing to cough up another c-note to put a rush job on it. So. I’m going to sign up for a catalog and dvd and look at that stuff before going any further. I’ll keep you posted. I don’t spend nine hundred dollars rashly!


A tie LK? In the summer??? What the hell would ever drive you to do a damn-fool thing like that?

I’m back!!!!! I got your comments and i know i’ve been neglecting everyone! But i’ve posted up my excuses 😛 Those boots…..ROCK!

11. Enas Yorl - July 23, 2010

Oh goody! I don’t have many readers so I can’t afford for another one to drop off. Yes, it’s all about me. 😀

12. cmblake6 - July 27, 2010

And I bitch about $39.95! If I were at that point in financial life where I could just say “I like those, I’ll have them”, perhaps. “If you’ve got to ask, you can’t afford them” sort of life. I ain’t nowhere near there.
