Friday Funnies

Walking downtown yesterday afternoon, I saw this single boot against a brick wall.
And IF you (like me) were curious about the other boot, it wasn't found despite a search around the area — someone will have cold feet


For no special reason, I started thinking of phrases/idioms containing  the word "boot." Here's my list — 

You bet your boots,  Too big for your boots
Get the boot,  Tough as an old boot
Bet your boots,  Shaking in your boots,  Booted out
Die with your boots on,  Shaking in your boots
Pull yourself up by the bootstraps
Boots on the ground,  Boot licker
Too boot, Boot hill, Boot camp
Boot-up, Re-boot

Can you think of more? 
Enjoy your weekend, Everyone.

Interesting boot phrases, but I'm wondering about the person who lost that boot and where the other one might be now. Mystery.

You really booted up the blog today, and it was a good one to boot.

One always wonders with something like that- why the one boot or the one shoe? It's easier to lose one glove, but footwear?

i can't think of any other but i can tell you my least favorite of your list. the word re-boot. i do so hate to do that.

I also thought of Nancy Sinatra and her walking boots!

Puss 'n Boots, the fictional character came to my mind, but that's more a name than a phrase. Cute post! :) Have a nice weekend!

I always wonder how people manage to lose just one boot or tennis shoe. I always think it fell out of their car or something.

I just found your blog on Connie's site. I like this poem very much about "boots." This is a great idea to write a poem.

Given the boot; too dumb to pour p*ss out of a boot; your mother wears combat boots; a lie goes halfway 'round the world before truth gets its boots on; tough as old boots; wouldn't want to be in his boots; bad luck to wait for a dead man's boots; nobody big enough to fill his boots' these boots were made for walking...

Good one and I like all the boot-isms :)

I often see single shoes around, but don't think I've ever seen a boot!

How about "giving someone the boot!" - for when they are firing someone.
