A lot of us put our boots on when the Shang came.  We grabbed our rifles and we went to battle.  We came home to a heroes welcome.  I kept my rifle.  I kept my ship.  I kept my boots.  They aren’t the same boots of course.  I’ve replaced them over the years.  But I still wear ’em.  I still stand up to do what needs doin’.  I intend to die with my boots on.  Unless I’m with a blonde, a brunette, and a redhead of course.  That’s a no boot zone right there.
