Kimono - Something to Wear

This Japanese loanword designating a loose-fitting robe opens a big box of exotic associations for many English speakers, so it's somewhat ironic that the components of it in Japanese only mean "wearing" and "thing."

Good morning KJ. I noticed your comment to Julie about click following and not being a follower. I thought, "A woman of like mind. I have to go visit." And how glad I am that I did. What I have seen so far, I very much like. I've bookmarked you so I don't lose you. Best wishes from one California girl to another, Annie.
