For enthusiasts of early banjo

Can't recall if I shared this before. If so, sorry for the redundancy. If not, then this would be a good month to do so.

Everyone of any use ought to have at least rudimentary knowledge of cooking, sewing, and dandling babies.

It's funny (or maybe not) how males felt threatened simply because some women were choosing a more practical/comfortable fashion that very loosely resembled men's wear.

Yeah, people never like when their privilege or power feels threatened in any way. Human nature.

Al you must enjoy all those amazing old photos of early women's baseball teams, and the wonderful uniforms they came up with in order to practice sports.  :)

Strum, sometimes at vintage base ball venues they might have a couple women's teams there and I always think that if I were them, I'd add a huge cuff to the bottom of their dresses/skirts so that the ball might be caught without even trying.  We have one woman on our club but she wears the same uniform as the men.
