Though some beware the Ides of March
My mum adds some extra starch
My shirt is like steel
My trousers won't kneel
With the zip as stuck as a larch.

Maybe you should do your OWN laundry then, Rico? :)

Well, that's a different way to celebrate the Ides of March, Rico! Very funny. Hope you are able to avoid the starch this year. Best wishes, Carolyn

When I was a little girl learning to iron, I spray-starched my father's underwear. He was so sweet and only said how neatly they were pressed. Poor Dad!

When I was stationed at Sembach AFB (Germany) the Base Commander was starch gung-ho, so on Monday mornings, the troops were as stiff as puppets - certainly not "combat ready"! I never forgot their "bullet proof" fatigues! Aloha! Rico
