All very nice Mark, and congrats for managing to work in not one but several photos - all good, I grant you…but I want to see some of these people who skite about getting about in next to nothing, e.g., togs or bikinis often with tops or bottom left off, put their money where their mouth is. Of course that'll hafta go on OTDE I suppose...

That's fine as long as hubby doesn't start wearing a mini-skirt.

We stopped at a marina on Hilton Head, SC and asked the dockmaster about restaurants. He suggested a nearby one we could walk to but said "You can't go dressed like that." I told him I had a pair of jeans on the boat He told me I couldn't wear jeans there either. We cooked on the boat.

So now I keep a pair of Bermuda shorts and a shirt with a collar on the boat "just in case".

Well, maybe if you just wore a regular skirt instead of a mini-skirt, they would have let you in!

Decades ago my parents and I pulled into an Atlanta restaurant for lunch. We knew it was fancy and dressy at dinner but this was 11:30 in the morning. Still my father was wearing shorts and my mother told him they'd never let him in. Well, we got out, went in. They said no. My father's response was, "Well, I've been kicked out of better places."

Atlanta is still a bit uptight. But also decades ago, Lorna Luft was performing in the club at the Regency Hyatt. One evening she ventured down to the restaurant, I believe it was Hugo's or something like that, wearing a pant suit. Designer I'm sure. Well, they wouldn't seat her. She asked why. Now they set off the firestorm saying, "We don't think pants are feminine." Not wise. She now walked around the restaurant asking the patrons one by one if they thought she looked feminine. It didn't take too long for someone to get a grasp on the situation and then seat her at a table way in the back near the kitchen. It also made the newspaper the following morning.

Wifey B: Don't think that's going to happen. He'd have to do a Joe Willie Namath and shave his legs to do that. Getting him to wear shorts more has been enough of a challenge but I've succeeded.

Just call in advance for a reservation for DOCTOR (your name) and you will usually get in.
