    Edmonton is an iffy Zone 3 just like we are here in southern Saskatchewan. Don't believe those who say early May planting...I mowed grass and shoveled snow in the same week in Calgary more than once....

    They are called kneeboots. The first pair look like Italian brand, the second may be Protecto Skin-Tights. What is missing on the first pair are the suspenders.

    I have seen them used behind as well. Oddest thing I saw was a trotter wearing two pairs behind - the top pair were upside down. Apparently he could shred a scalper by the quarter pole so they tried...

    It isn't easy at all, even for people who made their living here for years. The latest one they want to kick out is Henry Burris who has been a CFL quarterback for many years. He wants to stay but...
