Sounds just like the garden club Miz Anne belonged to back in the Sixties.
Women only, no men except the waiters and the bartender. If you forgot to
wear your girdle one day you got talked about. "Ladies don't jiggle, you
know." She made three meetings and said the hell with it. Gardening was
never mentioned nor were any flowers or vegetables in evidence except the
plastic ones on the table. Just as well, they probably wouldn't have
approved of our fertility rites in the garden. <VBG>
