Matthew you are wonderful. also would like to add that when ladies wore patent leather tops on their boots ( an American thing?) if you crossed your legs you did not get polish on your breeches! Of course you should clean your boots better

Check out this week's Middleburg Life wherein "The Master's Voice" (i.e. a retired MFH that we all know) comments about correct attire.

I'm for keeping the "old" tradition. Viviane Warren OCH
