John and I have been too busy to take it on and we haven't heard about anyone else wanting to plan it. :(

I will have to remember this for my next outfit ...

but to us even a pair of pink socks or a collegiate scarf shows that the wearer has punk spirit"

Just sent this down to New Orleans for the winter. I miss it already, still had the original horse hair saddle

If you are looking for leather ankle straps for your next BBC that don't break the bank, Restoration Hardware had some (p)leather straps on sale for about $10 + tax. Brooks they ain't, but few people could tell the difference.
