I guessed she was a visitor to the Vizcaya villa on Biscayne Bay -- maybe James Deering's concubine.

Judy--she is the bounteous untouched lands west of the Mississippi--or west of the Hudson--or someplace mythic!

Virgin West! I get it now.

Virgin West? Wasn't she Honey West's maiden aunt?

Should you use the phrase "after the jump" after an article where a woman was shredded in a parachute accident? :lol:
