Re: re nursery interview apparel

Well, Kitty, I found that with Gemplers, if you get the wrong size,
they will exchange it as the first pair of boots I ordered from them
was too big.  If you can't find what you want to try on, you might
call their customer service and I bet one of those nice people would
go measure a pair for you:-)  They were super to deal with.

Well, re: rubber boots - to each their own.  I figure they're not
going to make me any hotter on a 90+ degree day than I already am and
they really don't.  In hot weather, you could garden naked or fully
covered and would sweat the same buckets...so I opt for the full
covering to keep off bugs and make sure I don't get covered in poison
ivy or whatever...works for me tho' I have had it intimated that my
garden togs are a bit other-worldly:-)
