Please educate me --- what is a "twit two"?
Sounds as if it might be what in the UK is called a wolf-whistle.

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

It depends on if you consider being looked over by a burly truck driver an advantage! A long walk that my wife and I like to do fairly frequently takes us past a transport café on one of the main trunk roads out of London, and we like to drop in for a take-away coffee. Today, we arrived a little ea...

Re: Swim skirts: Crossing a line?

I think it's better to find a beach where you don't have to wear anything at all. That way you avoid the unpleasant cling of sodden fabric amidships when you get out of the water.

Re: Hello Skirt Cafe!

We got in line to buy an ale and a mead for her when the guy behind me tapped on my shoulder. He discretely said to me, "hey laddie you've got your kilt on backward. You look like a Catholic school girl." It wasn't very discrete (or even discreet) of him to say such a thing to you. Especially in a ...

Re: How old were you . . . . ?

Anthony, I wear the shorts with ankle socks and she doesn't like the look. The shorts are either the ones that look like trousers only cut above the knee or like sports shorts, football shorts, athletic shorts. There's method in my madness. If it's the ankle socks that antagonize her to your skirts...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

Went out yesterday with my wife for a longish walk, to try out my new, black Purple Rain adventure skirt. And my conclusion is that it's the lightest, coolest and most comfortable thing ever for a hot day out (temperatures were pushing 30° hereabouts). What surprised me was that nobody at all seemed...

So 7.5 hours on your feet and 20,000+ steps later - tired feet, legs and back - you're knackered, mate.
On the other hand, if you're doing 20,000 steps a day on 5+ days per week, you'll very soon have the perfect excuse to choose a collection of new skirts to fit your new, lithe figure ;-)

Re: Corona Virus

I just spoke to the owner of Purple Rain skirts the other day. Her business is taking a serious hit and she may not recover. I am sure she would appreciate support from us if any of you feel inclined to do so. http://www.purplerainskirts.com/ A skirt and an Adventure Kilt from Purple Rain reached m...

Re: Postive Wife Support

I had heard that Barnitts was closing and am glad that it's not. Many years ago a similar hardware shop closed - Stubbs, was it? Such losses are sad. Very sad. Just a year ago, we lost an excellent local shop of the same kind five minutes' walk from where I live, and there's really nothing to repla...

Re: Postive Wife Support

Geron, I wouldn't know as I so rarely go into the town centre. When shops like Barnetts close down I think the writing is on the wall. Barnitts closed down? That certainly would be a blow. But according to the York Press, it's just about to reopen, though downsizing a bit because they're selling of...

Re: Postive Wife Support

Cheer up, Dennis -- things are looking up in York. I'm informed that Roberto's Gelato has just reopened in Goodramgate, and I can feel the pull from here.

Re: Postive Wife Support

Having some maintenance jobs to do around the house during our recent fine weather, I told my wife that I was going to put on a short denim skirt to which she'd previously objected quite strongly (about four inches above the knee, so nothing exceptional by the standards of the Café!). I explained th...

Re: Items on eBay

There's risk both ways. Thousands of customers demanding cash refunds could push the airline into administration but at least you should get your money unless you are last in the queue. Accept vouchers and the airline will be relieved and possibly prepared to bend over backwards to accommodate you ...

Re: Items on eBay

Two foreign excursions went to the wall, even the one planned for September, so I expect it'll probably be next year before I can get off the Island and wrap my tongue around a foreign language, even if that language is English! Airlines aren't offering refunds on cancelled tickets, just vouchers t...

Re: Postive Wife Support

Apparently [my wife] is ok with me wearing them providing I don't wear one she would wear? :o My wife, unprompted, used exactly the same words to me yesterday. So perhaps this is a common reaction. (Unfortunately it was in relation to denim skirts, but at least it's useful information!) Might it be...
