Anthony, I have considerable admiration for the wealth of knowledge this crowd holds, but you may need to explain your pun to some -- meantime I'm smiling. :cheese:
Sorrrrryyyy. New Zealand is often referred to as the land of the long white cloud (which is obviously a meteorological feature). Some original inhabitants have a different take on the phrase.

I've been at the family home in Maryland dealing with my Mom's estate since early November. I wore dress pants at the memorial service on November 6, as I didn't want any undue attention on me since the service focused on Mom.

I had also packed a pair of blue jeans but I've not worn pants since the memorial service. Back home in Illinois, I wear pants for a weekly peace vigil (look foolish enough standing on a street corner with signs). So this is the longest by far that I haven't worn pants. Well, I tried on a pair of Christmasy leggings for a minute but was unimpressed. I'm still doing all the everyday (during COVID season) things of walks in the park or suburban streets, grocery shopping, and hardware stores. I'll soon be starting to paint the interior of the house, preparing it for sale, so I'll have to pick a skirt that I'll sacrifice for painting jobs. Or maybe I'll just wear a long old teeshirt I found here like a dress.

One more woman speaking out for us:

I've not idea who she is save the bio blip; but every bit helps.

There is probably a better thread for this -- if any know it; feel free to shift things about.

Yes Faldaguy, but it's the numbers of all genders who don't that are the problem.
Sorry for the pessimism.

Hey Steve,

If that doesn't grab you, how about this technique?

Faldaguy,
Hmmm, perhaps some pointers from the cafe would set that guy on the right track,
The lady, however, I could speak to to my heart's content.
Good call.
Steve.
