    Yep. I refused to upgrade my wardrobe when I lived there back in the early days (Duvall had its own sort of "renaissance" beginning a few decades back)and began to feel so uncomfortable in my surroundings that I was forced to leave (the upper crust crowd began staring at me - it was really uncomfortable).
    I'm pretty sure it was Levis I wore though. And the old authentic plaid flannel shirts just weren't cutting it whenever I went into town.
    For all the younger guys on here; we used to wear the old original plaid flannel shirt - long before they became the rage with the Capitol Hill "hipster" crowd that my daughter points out to me these days. I swear to high heaven those are the Duvallite high society we must be seeing all dressed down like that when taking a sojourn away from the "Paris of the West".
    Anyway, you're not alone in feeling that way, Charlie. Us "pee-ons" with the mud on our boots can find solace together right here on this very forum.
    I'll just keep on wearing that old original flannel shirt from Warshalls ("google it" youngun's) and hold my head high!...

    You have fettered my fear of inadequacy, Greg. I shall march down Main Street (Hwy 203) proudly in my faded Wranglers and muddy boots. My only shirt is a cotton work shirt with a frayed collar. But I shall wear it proudly.

    Don't worry Olive, you're not missing much. The Wine Club bunch are former socialites that have aged out of their skinny jeans and natural corks. Now residing in the Trilogy neighborhood on Novelty they're enjoying their retirement days maintaining important friendships and discussing the finer points of John Deere
    green. So next time you're cruisin' Duvall and happen upon a half dozen new German made luxury cars parked neatly grill to grill you'll know you've bumped the covey!

    I bumped a fire hydrant once, does that count?

    Only if it happened in Duvall - it's been said that it'll bring you good luck.
    But just remember; bumpin' a covey is always a good thing - or so I've been told.

    My wife will not let me play with coveys. So, I guess bumping is out of the question.

    Just too old to argue.

    Besides they all look about the same.

    The strength of the briney pallet of the Snoqualmie Valley Escargot depends on where and when they are harvested. AM or PM, upstream or downstream of the sewer plant.

    Would you recommend a good Pinot Noir with that escargot?

    Or perhaps a nice fruity Ripple?

    Actually, heroin. That's the preferred pharmaceutical in Duvall these days.
    From what I hear anyway.
