As golden trumpets blare their fanfare, a dapper man steps up to the microphone. "HEAR YE", "HEAR YE!" (say the master of Ceremony) "On this starry nite of June 4, 2011, allow me to welcome you to the RMB 1st ANNUAL COTILLION! I am the MC for this gala event, my name is Alfonso Sage Palm.As we gather here at the Nicotania Reserves, amid all the beautiful rambling gardens and fountains to pay homage to those we hold so dear. It will be my intense honor to introduce to you--tonight--the most beautiful, most talented babies for 2011!"

But first I want to introduce our Orchestra for the evening--THE EPI REELZ COMPANY". Their speciality is Big Band music, Swing, and Jazz. They also will take requests. Let's have a round of applause for them! Make sure your dance cards are full, Ladies!"

"I also like to express our graditude to the vivacious, generous benefactoress of the evening's activities-- Madam Heavenscape. Isn't she glorioso splendid in her formal attire? Aren't you just Nephthytis bright this evening, Madam?"

"Decorations wer inspired by Madam Musa Basjoo. The beautiful tourquoise and silver pallette do so compliment your eyes, Madam".

"I wish to congradulate Mrs. FOTV for doing such a Asiatic Double job of creating our Buffet menu tonight. It consists of:
CHAMPAIGNE & MIMOSAS
SLIVERS SMOKE ALASKA SALMON ON SOURDOUGH TOAST POINTS
SHRIMP & LOBSTER BISQUE

LIME SORBET
WHITE WINE/WATER

"We will partake tonight of several Parlor Games. Such as Musical Camellia Chairs, Monstera Gown
Contest, Ireland Belle of Ball Contest, Alfonso Says, Evergreen Nursery Murder Mystery, as well as a fantastic Door Prize. Hold on to your tickets, everyone!"

"And now, without a Cast Iron delay, you can see the Paparazzi with their blinding lights as the Loropetalum clad participants come down the grand double staircase--anxious parents will form a welcome receiving line at the bottom. Trillum moms will announce and give details descrptions of their precious charges to waiting Cosmos Society. And here comes the very first prticipant down the Nite Bloom Cereus staircase to the tune of Glenn Miller's "String of Pearls". Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Debutante ...

Well, I'm sorry to say that little L. Phoenix will be unable to attend the Cotillion. However, it is not because he croaked, er, I mean didn't make it ... but because he is cutting many new baby teeth!!! He's too cranky to attend and his mother has a bad case of poison ivy so she's not too cheerful herself at the moment. He wanted me to send this picture along with his regrets. Although out of focus because his mother couldn't stay outside in the sun without starting to itch like mad since it's 96* here, if you look closely you can make out all the little red "nubs/bumps" on him where he is sprouting new baby teeth. Oh, happy day! He will be such a handsome thing with many new branches and leaves in no time at all. He is making his mother very proud.

You all enjoy the ball and we will enjoy all the pictures. Phoenix sends slobbery baby kisses and kindest regards to the attendees and to his Auntie Jax. :-)

Sorry you're suffering from teething, LP (not you, LK). You sure will be reinvited for next year's cotillion.
Mama Carole, what a shame... but we understand...baby comes first. Hope you won't suffer too much with that poison ive.

LK, I'll tell the doorman to let you in early. Help yourself to the refreshments. Tell the catering staff you're VIP ;)

We'll get the bestest carrots for Charley!

Congratulations Dear Linda Kay, lol, i could only guess about 10...
Well, i was busy looking for the bar, er I mean the refreshment stand.

Sorry very sorry to hear of C-ville having the poinson ivy, poor dear, hope you are feeling better quickly.
Oh now, just look at your Baby, isn't he going to be spectacular...hope his little teeth emerge soon!

Sistah jaye darling, arn't you spunky, hollering for a drink...And don't you look just lovely too.

Hi Neener,

Waiving across the floor, Crit, good to see you.

Oh now Charley does look quiet Dashing with his hat and floral...Looks like he takes very good care of Teddy.

Well, I have been so busy, not sure i can dance this evening, so i'll mostly watch...hopefully i won't get too dizzy.
whew...anyone have a fan i may borrow...

Oh and Jax what a lovely Ball...big bummer my ticket was close, but not close enough, sigh.

Next year I think we all need to be on the same time zone so no one is late. :-) Or at least know what zone we need to adjust to.

Perhaps we might find a walk in the park a delightful way to pass an afternoon with the children getting to know each other a bit better. Would that be amenable to you?

If Charley sees it, he will have to sample to see if it is good Stuff. Undoubtedly it was very good!!!!

Gotta return to see that the cleaning crew did a good job since Charley and Jax left their droppings behind.

Glad to know LK and Charleen went home safely.
But.. Jax... I know no cabbies will take you home, with that reek?
Did you call your son to pick you up? Or you hosed yourself down.
I got the fumigators bill btw, and they charged extra for "hardship".
Errrr...next year we'll just have to make provision for in case of "hardship".

Susan, we miss you too!! Thought when you learnt we won't be serving Dom Perignon, you chose to stay home!
But my mimosas were outstanding! The champagne used was a Budweiser brand!

Jan, Jan, Jan.. you should have come in!!! But I don't blame ya!!
Those celebrities can be intimidating!! At least Sharon Stone kept her legs crossed!!

Don't know who won that door prize. But I know the prizes are good surprises LK!!
(Now why didn't you tell me goodbye?)

Oh no!!! A dead body!!!!!!!!!!!
Why oh why didn't I know about this??? Why oh why didn't the cleaning crew reported it???
Ahhh.. the "hardship" add on to the bill. I understand now.
It's just not Jax and the draperies stench.. but the body too!!
They could have disposed it!!

I'm leaving a sign on the door that it's closed and for Mamas to continue to check in on...

Jan, you wanna chime in with your advice on how to be a great Mama? Come on over.

Maybe one of you can figure where that dead body came from!!

LK!! Darn, for a while there I thought the mimosas had minimized my brain cells.
That's the right link. It's home...
Since the Cotillion is over, no point hanging in the building... except to find clues as to that dead body.
We'll just be wasting money if we were to rent another building.
So, we'll just resume meeting at the original RMB site :-)

Good idea Crit. Then she can be re incarnated through another pot.

He probably didn't even see her as a plant. He likes to paw the ground before I feed him. I tell him" I'm not going to feed you any faster" but he just keeps pawing the ground. "hurry, Mama, Hurry"

It is one of those that can be reused, Like the bags at Walmart you buy to put groceries in.
See it there in the background? It is stiched up It's really neat. It is a Quizno's "green" bag.
to take to the store when you buy a sandwich to carry home.

Jax, you were so sweet sending me my very own Tiki Party in a box for coming up with the Best Menu. I got a Quiznos bag too and am saving the over-the-shoulder Leather bag organizer for Winter. Love it all and you too, Dearie!
