Spring Fundraiser - Sorry to say, but support numbers in general have been VERY disappointing!

We will conclude this next week - may have to cut back a bit

Petticoat Pond  celebrates its twenty-second year this December!  During that time, it has striven to become a friendly place for all who
appreciate The Bouffant and petticoats, and femininity in general - Yes, you're not the 'only one!'  Part of our philosophy is to welcome all,
no matter whom, and no matter their financial station in life.  Consequentially, we try to rely on banners and spurious monetary contributions. 

However, that is not always enough.  In the past we have periodically held fund raisers to see us through those leaner times (The last was
held a couple years ago), and now is such a time, a time to help us keep our head above The Pond water, as it were.

We appeal to those who can, to send even a small amount - it is certainly appreciated! 
Of course, special thanks to those that send funds when they can!

Funds can be sent by check, made out to 'Coral Computers - PP' and sent to PP, PO Box 624, Gainesville  VA  20156;

OR,  PayPal, using this address: <<lierse@reagan.com>>   (Best is to designate the money as 'personal', and not 'business'.)

WE HAVE DISCONTINUED HONORING CREDIT CARDS

We are committed to NEVER making The Pond a pay site.

"How many clouds of scented lace kiss each other under your skirt?"  
                                                                             
C. Govoni (1884-1965)

 
WHEN I SEE...
A fetching lass, enveloped in tulle,
declaring, defining the beauty of Man(kind)
Slim of waist, contours of mystery.
Dark tresses which defy description,
a mantel of the soul.
She leads on, unaware of her uniqueness--
Classic, haunting,
Deep auras of eyes
Deep vibrations from the heart
Deep color of the gentleness of her inner self.
I see jealousy
I see my yearning to take her place
I see, also, my utter, deadening sadness.
Tes Staylace -- July 12, 1992
Update Page Policies
Generally, updates are linked to the appropriate area so you do not have to search for it.  We keep updates for as long as six months,
after which we merge the individual entries into the appropriate areas of the site.  Very rarely is anything discarded.
Pettipond  ALWAYS attributes the source of pictures when possible.  Image contributions should include the source, when possible, so at least the site from which it is taken can posted with it. It makes no sense, and is unfair, to have the same image on the Internet more than once, especially if the site originally posting it doe not at least get the benefit of a link. If an image is not attributed, and later is found to be in violation of copyright laws, it will be removed.
The Pond is FIRSTLY a petticoat/bouffant/crinoline site, and SECONDLY a TG site.  Image contributions are always welcome and appreciated, but our policy is to not post TG images (with the exception of Poufbunny Parlor Pinups and the occasional VERY passable CDer (in our Flash Pinup section).  Please do not be offended - there are many TG sites on the Internet, but only ONE Pond, and we want also to be inviting to GGs and non-TG males who merely appreciate females in petticoats!
Pettipond Reflections response additions will NOT be listed in this area.
