The Lady Grace Dudley is the distressingly adventuresome only daughter of a British Duke, Her Ladyship passes her time as many other women of her station do, in travel and whatever pursuits happen to catch her fancy. Unlike most of her feminine contemporaries, however, she has a deep and abiding love of technology and a penchant for tinkering. Always the lady, gloves and an apron are a must over her fine frocks when there's a spanner or an oil can in her hand. Whatever is going on, tea is always promptly served at four, and all work or adventuring pauses.
Lady Grace's esteemed father considers her a little on the benignly mad side but indulges her interests and her travels generously. It seems to keep her out of trouble. Well, the sort he knows about anyway. In possession of a brand new dirigible, Her Ladyship is certain that she can improve upon the design (the last one just had no call to blow up on its landing pad like that, the temerity...) and then has every intention of making a return trip to Egypt by way of France and Italy to examine some recently discovered antiquities for herself.

Sounds lovely! I only recently moved to the area from Pennsylvania under the impression that Springfield was just a suburb of Eugene. Now that I have learned my lesson, my husband and I will be moving into Eugene proper as soon as we find the right place. It would be lovely to catch some music at Sam Bonds or lunch at Laughing Planet as these are places that have been recommended to me that I have yet to explore. This would make the perfect excuse! I think that it would be lovely to get a steamy group together for our area, if you would be interested in something that meets once a month, let me know!
