Good morning, Good morning...
Exciting day, getting ready today as well.
Jax, i am sure enjoying your Master of Ceremony, you are just so much fun to read everyday!!
See you all tonight!
Got my Spats all shinned you for dear little Teddy, wh woll be making his grand entrance on the heels of a mule...
psssst: I think our MC, Alfonso Sago Palm, Esquire is either at the salon to take care of his 'coiffures' or sleeping it off . But I'm sure he'll be here when the sun goes down!
No babies to show off here, guess I'll be in that "neutral" corner with LK and Synda!!
Will Charley be dressed up too, Charleen? Can't wait to see him in his best summer hat!!
Whew, lots to prepare for...Getting excited.
Just checked the invitation The Catillion begins at 7:00, I'm guessing according to DG time: located up in right corner.
Ahh thank you for reminding us, Judy. You know I have CRS!!!
AHHHHHH!!! But , of coarse. A mule of distinction.....
Is it 7:00 central time? You all on the east coast are 1 hour ahead of me, I would not want to be left out!
Well, hands on hips here...Hope Im not late, cuz i dunno!!
I am thinking by the time on the blue line on top...where the tabs are in the right hand corner...Thats DG time, I always thought.
OMG, my camera died!! have to rush and charge the other cameras batteries...
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 to hear you have poison ivy rash all over. Hope it goes away really quick!
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!

Alfonso Sago Palm, Esquire, there's a bee in my corsage, sir?
Are you trying to tell me that my perfume's too heavy?
Charley, you certainly made the flower prettier!!
Well, it is almost time, everyone should be arriving soon?
Just got an RSVP from Susie, Mama to Baby Linda May.
She sends regrets not being able to attend as there are urgent matters that need her attention.
Being it's Saturday evening, me think there will be a few Mamas that's partying in town too.
That's okay.. more lobsters and shrimps for me :D
Oh the bee's trying to sip my mimosa..
Shoo bee.. go make honey... leave my mimosa alone!!
Bring on the Babies, we wanna see them....
"OMG" Is that Al Pacino, going up the staircase to rescue the little fraidy cat? That reporter from the New York herald is taking their Picture!
"You are hearing us live at the Nicotania Reserves, folks! Where dance cards are bing filled to the brim, and socialites are mingling.........waiting still for the first Debutante to come down! I am Alfonso Sago Palm, Ladies and Gents....welcoming you to the Ball OF THE YEAR!"
Hey Hey..he's looking good!! ♫♪ Dorah dum dorah dum didy dum♪
I'm headed over to the bar, anyone join me for a cold one?
Aww LK.. I'm soo sooo sorry. She would be the belle of the ball.
Nicotania Reserves?? That's what we are at?? No wonder I'm seeing lots of "butts" laying around.
Sorry folks.. it's Jax that made the arrangement.
Nicotanis do smell so good,but not butts!
Me! me!! I'm coming LK. Need another Mimosa.
