The deals are RAINING down! Get it?



I spent a few hours at the University of Tampa yesterday talking to the journalism students. It was a soggy day, but not torrential, so I was surprised how many cute and funky rain boots I saw on campus. We've talked about rain boots before, but I've never actually seen that many in real practice until yesterday. There must have been at least six or seven college hotties clomping around campus in rubber shoes like it wasn't no thang.

Funny thing was, that morning, my friend Alan Mohney Jr. e-mailed me to tell me about the rain boots he's now carrying at his business, Seminole Nurseries in Pinellas Park. Rain boots on the brain! Alan carries a brand of boots, garden clogs and apparel called Sloggers, but sells the brand in the shop for about 30 percent less than the standard retail price. The rain boots come in several colors and designs that kind of remind me of Vera Bradley. Very ladylike!


He's giving away free gardening gloves with the purchase of a pair of boots or clogs. How long? "Until I run out of gloves!" he said.

Stay dry, sea otters.
