You know kimonos, robes. ” Audra seemed more impressed by my ring attire than by my grappling experience. I told her that my kimonos were sewn by Ruby. She knew who Ruby was. Even in San Francisco, a woman in her forties with hot pink hair who showed up to see every psychobilly band that came through town tended to stand out. By working the clubs, Audra had seen a lot of Ruby.
