Hi Everybody, I hope that this week-end is going OK for all of my friends in Bloggerville! Last night, as I do every Saturday OR Sunday evening in the Summer time, My best friend Alex, aka Ajax and I, went on our usual road trip. We usually get started about 7:30 or so by getting a hot, fresh, and delicious cup of Tim Horton's coffee. We usually have a pre-roll of some sort of Herbal Extract on hand, and we head for the country...Let's see, from where we live, that usually takes about 5 minutes. We have no specific route, we just cruise, sip, puff, dodge deer, and listen to the Oldies station. Last night we ended up in a very small rural town called Bancroft. This is a typical little Berg, but it does have a great Biker Bar there called Pirates Cove. They have a great menu, and their beer is ice cold. On the week-ends they usually have a band, and the people are friendly. Last night was the owner of the bars birthday, his name is Scott Wilson, he has 2 great looking Harley's, and he supports all local Biking events. I don't know where I'm really going with this ramble, but please bear with me for a minute..
As I was sipping an Ice-Cold Budweiser for 2.25 each, I casually glanced up on the wall and noticed a line of bra's along the top of the ceiling. Now I've been to many bars in my life, and I've seen the same line of bra's on many bars ceiling's...But I have NEVER been there while one was being taken off for the collection. Maybe I don't stay late enough, maybe I don't buy the right Bimbo her Cold Bud, Maybe they buy them at the Goodwill and put them up in the daytime, I don't know, all I know is that I've never seen a removal of this private piece of wearing apparel in a bar. Well well, doesn't that sound like a segue'?????????
Mary Phelps Jacob, a teenage debutante in 1913, wanted to wear a Rose-Garland dress to a party one evening, but her corset cover kept peeping through the Roses around her bosom. So she took off the corset, pinned 2 handkerchiefs together, and tied them behind her back with some ribbon. "The result was delicious", she later recalled, "I could move about much more freely, a nearly naked feeling"..The contraption eventually became known as a "Brassiere"-
A name borrowed from the corset cover it replaced..( Jacob later became famous for riding naked through the streets of Paris.....on an elephant!!)
Have a great Sunday everyone..... Peace
