Last night at our regular 2nd and 4th Tuesday gender-role-free English Country Dance in Jamaica Plain, we had a special night to celebrate the recent wedding of a pair of regular attendees. (They is one of those soon to be obsolete opposite sex marriages since Massachusetts is about to destroy that institution). The lovely couple sponsored the band (Piano and Fiddle) and we had a dress-up night. I pulled together my outfit rather quickly so didn't notice that the pearls were not pure white which would have been a better match to the earings, shawl (and my beard).

English Country dancing is always enhanced by wearing white gloves.
