I usually introduce you to others as Mistress, especially when they are 
asking about garb and the time period you do so well.

I didn't know you felt that way, I wish you had said something eariler.  
But that gets back to that familiar thing I was talking about.  
(Arabella logs her file folder brain to call Jeanmaire, Her Excellency, 
when she has her hat on) It's really hard when you have a close friend 
who has a hat to remember they have a title and may like to be called in 
such a way.

On the other hand, I don't remember you introducing yourself as Mistress 
or Her Excellency during the Thunder Buns Competition.  LOL!!!! Wouldn't 
have been to proper I guess!  HEHEHEHEHEHE!
