    Mr. Palmer did a great publicity shoot at Douglas that day. Dress was a bit formal I would say! Oil coated aluminum shavings from a lathe are not something I would wear good clothes around!

    She is probably getting paid really good money for that time.

    Shavings don't always come with oil on them.
