Petticoat Pastiche

Ever since Petula Darling got out her petticoat, I've been hankerin' for one. I finally got up to Petticoat Junction last week and snagged a nice black one. I figure if I like it enough I'll go back for a white one and a short red one. Because I need them. I love that store. It has wonderful dance clothes, shoes, rhinestones, and of course many different kinds of petticoats.

Today the latest incarnation of La Bande Pastiche had a gig for the opening of the Broadview Library. I got to wear my new petticoat *plus* my new sequined bustier, and that made me really excited! Several folks I know showed up to listen, and my friend Sabina took some pictures. You can see my lovely new poof, glitter, and my freshly polished rubboard. For some reason the copper breasts get finger prints all over them.

Today La Bande Pastiche consisted of Claudia on fiddle, Lucy on accordion and fiddle, Ted on guitar, and Sandy on bass.

A good time was had by all, except that little girl who cried when she saw us.
