Willow Manor Ball 2011

Mr. Jackson and I have been looking forward to this evening. Ruth and Reya you are positively stunning! I can see Willow on the dance floor with Sir Tony. Is that a rose in Tony's mouth?



 The night has been spectacular so far and full of surprises.

Pierce Brosnan made his way through the crowd slipping his arm around my unsuspecting waist and with a whispered "May I?" to Mr. Jackson led me off to the dance floor for a bit of a whirl.
Mr. Jackson had a martini, shaken not stirred, waiting as Pierce and I foxtrotted across the floor. Tapping him on the shoulder, Mr. Jackson handed Pierce the martini and led me onto the dance floor for a slow tango of our own.
Meanwhile Sting, who just celebrated his 60th Birthday at the Beacon in NYC sends his regrets and promises to be here next year. Harry was kind enough to stop by with his orchestra and play a few tunes though..this was my favorite ...



Perhaps Sting and Harry can sing a duet next year?

I think I am going to rest a bit and just take in the scene...



Willow, you have outdone yourself , my dear--to hear the rave reviews and see more stroll on over here!

That WAS a rose in Sir Anthony's mouth. He has been out on the grounds with Arlo, having a smoke. I expect him to get even crazier this year than last.

Your dress is stunning!!

Too bad about Sting. Maybe he'll slip in later on, to avoid the papparazzi. Is that how it's spelled?

Cheers!!

Pierce with scruff .. be still my heart! Your blue gown looked amazing on that body!!

Stafford Ray said...

wow! Minor Swing took the Django sound and pushed it further! Forget Stephan, she was outstanding! No, don't forget Stephan, he pushed the boundaries too.
And Harry and orchestra! How smooth was that!
Wonderful ball music.. and the gown!! Mmmmm!

Gosh, but don't you have SOME dance partners!

Margaret said...

I think I'll take a breather next to you on the pillow with my Chocolate Martini and enjoy the sweet crooning of Harry Connick Jr. By the way, you look fabulous in black.

Looks like a great time in your corner of the ball. Is there a reason the buxom blonde in blue velvet is missing the rest of her head?

Ruth said...

Please tell Mr. Jackson that he was the most elegant man at the ball, and you, my dear, were radiant, no wonder Pierce found you.

Cheryl Cato said...

You gown is beautiful and I am seriously envious of your foxtrot with Pierce. Somehow I managed to miss visiting with you last evening. Next year I shall make certain that we have a chat! And now for the hair of the dog to get me started for the day. The breakfast at the manor is the perfect ending to a beautiful evening.
