Re: re nursery interview apparel

Marge - my garden togs, especially the warm weather stuff, wouldn't make
muster at Goodwill. But the thinner and more full of holes stuff is, the
cooler it is. And since I garden all summer long in often 100
degree-plus heat, cooler is good. And the neighbors are used to it so
who cares? Everyone else in indoors until 7 anyway. No guts, no glory!
