I was up late last night reading about the Third Annual Willow Manor Ball. I have not cyber-attended in the past and wanted to this year, and I thought I might select as my escort actor Tony Curtis. But I had today to write the post that would include some photos of Tony Curtis dressed in formal attire, and to select my own gown and accessories, so I got some sleep.
When I turned on the computer this morning the news on my i-Google page announced the death of Tony Curtis. I think it would be gauche to resurrect him so soon as my date for the Willow Ball, and I cannot now think of anyone else to replace his image as my escort for the evening -- thus, my attendance at the Willow Ball this year will be in thought only (which is, of course, what it will be for everyone there but they will be there in full regalia and spirit!).
Here he is at an earlier ball before he had a chance to realize what a fun date I make (well, okay, she looks like she was a lot of fun, too).
