MARCH 2019 – Marching Along
Steady: We’re getting through this winter thing, together … and you’re doing well!  Pushing through the final stretch of bluster and chill before the daffodils pop out and the last coil of dog poo thaws out by the 149 bus stop.

Let’s review where we’ve been, where we’re at, and what’s ahead at DreamBagsJaguarShoes, ThelVictoria and HandloflGlory …

DEATH VALLEY GIRLS!
What an incredible night, thanks to Death Valley Girls (supported by Night Shades and Roxy Girls) who absolutely smashed it at The Victoria last week.
