I confess, I love leather. I love the smell of it and the touch of it. I like going into a tack room and reveling in the smell of leather and horses.
On my list of things to do is go to the Old El Paso Saddle Company in, wait for it, El Paso. The craftsmen all dress in authentic 1800’s garb and are avid historians. Oh, yes, if I had the money I would take off a week just to spend shooting the bull with them. Since I don’t, I will take off a day, go down there and breathe in leather and history for a day. I will order something just for me. I’m thinking a hand carved leather bag. I carve leather, but don’t know when I would have time with trying to finish this book and actually make it readable.
Anyway, suffice to say, I love leather. So, when John sent me this link to this ad, it struck me on many levels.
I actually have had men offer me their room keys. I wish I had been as quick as this woman, but alas, my mind takes a bit to recover from the shock. I did pass one key on to a very drunk, very…worn lady and explained the man was too shy to ask her to visit him. She, being very drunk and very…worn, was not so shy and staggered off to meet Don Juan.
Oddly enough, I have a leather coat just like the one in this commercial except mine is burgundy. Loves it I do.
Thank you, John. I loved this. The best part is the moron doing the double take when he sees the man with his room key.
