Not Any of the Ladies I Know
The pink dress I'm wearing today came from the same shop, so it was a little like a homecoming. The label indicates the maker was an unfamiliar brand called, "British Lady." I suppose you could read that a few ways, but as it is made in the US, I think they mean it as a title of nobility, not for your, "Hey, lady, you can't park there!" sort. At any rate, I don't know any British ladies that would be caught dead in this getup. I tried to imagine what it would sort of clothing you could market to a UK audience called, "American Lady" but all I could come up with was some sort of calico prairie thing, or perhaps a track suit that reads, "juicy" across the bottom...but we've already done that I suppose.

PS-look at my tiny garden grow. I can't believe how much produce I've been able to harvest from our little pots and raised bed. I always thought I had a good garden on the farm, but this small plot has really been productive.
