More boots

Dear Diary, Angelo:  I have such a cool papa!  A fortnight ago, Adam had a present of new boots.  I was very happy for him because he still doesn't have many shoes and boots.  I couldn't be jealous because I have lots of them.  So, I was very surprised when a package for me arrived from Hong Kong.
Imagine - not 1 but 3 pairs of boots!  These are the finest boots, or shoes for that matter, that I own.  They are so well-made and fit me perfectly.  The scale and attention to detail is fantastic.

The next day we brought a picnic lunch and sat at the shore in the sun to enjoy the ambience of the place.  While we were eating, a man came by with his dog.  The dog loved to swim and every time his master …

The boots are very nicely made with a zipper up the back.  They are a snug fit but I don't mind.  As you can see in the photo above, the tights don't fit too well; they are more like 'low-riders' in the crotch.  I hope the pants fit better.  The pair of boots are made for the right and the left foot, unlike many of the generic 18" doll-sized shoes which can be worn on either foot.  The tights are sheer and I had to pull them up tightly (you can see my toes in this photo) so the crotch wasn't down to my knees.  I haven'…
