Taking a cotton to three smiling ‘swabbies’

Photos by Laurie Marechaux

Artist Laurie Marechaux spotted her favorite ladies at the Country Girl Diner in Chester on Thursday morning sporting these custom T-shirts.

Of course, she couldn’t resist taking several photographs, especially given the fact that several weeks ago, Marechaux herself had dubbed the three — Kathy, Judy and Wendy, from left, in the bottom photo — “Q-Tips.”  That prompted Wendy to take things into her own hands and have the T-shirts created.

Texting from the diner Thursday, Marechaux,  who now calls herself the “Q-Tips’ agent,”  added that “we have out-of-towners wanting to take their” picture. And, she said, one white-haired gentleman also asked for a T-shirt!
