And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two?

What would you wear to keep from getting wet? After a while, I mean. Chaps would inadequate. Leather would work for a while, but then it wouldn't. Sooner or later, it's going to be coming through. That snow is going to melt, and it's going to make for a wet seat, no matter how you slice it.ReplyDelete
Then you slice it a different way. Fer instance, a floor length oiled canvas duster. Put one on the hoss too.Delete
You use paraffin to keep you duster and chaps waterproof.....Delete

I remember hearing that there is no such thing as bad weather, instead there is inadequate clothing. When I worked a night shift I would leave the house in warm sunshine and return in the cold pre dawn, either way I was inadequately dressed.ReplyDelete
