Unfortunately the ladies had been reading "So You Think You Want To Be A Crop Duster" by Miles E Gibson of Colorado USA. So there was a certain amount of confusion. They were disappointed, I think, that I wasn't dressed as a cowboy.
Might it be possible do you think, to accommodate that wish? We are your blog followers afterall and some of us would truly like to see that.
We can't promise a cowboy outfit . . . but if you're curious about the passing fads and fashions of a Man of Letters the next post might interest you.
