Until our forum begins (YES!) I need to ask what I might be using to "condition" the snakeskin trim on my Ramona? I am so afraid it might dry out or peel without any type of conditioning ? Do you think a good rub with a leather conditioner would do it? I also have one teeny tip to hand out on caring for the "baby" when dining out. I am forever afraid that my waitress will have all the gracefullness of an oxen and dump a drink on my Ramona. I now carry a gorgeous designer scarf from Gucci (it even has pictures of purses emblazened on it -- on sale at Bluefly) and drape it over the top of my Jimmy while dining . I'd much rather take the scarf to a dry cleaners than cry for weeks with a drowned Ramona. THANKS FOR OUR JC FORUM!!!
