Fifth Annual Willow Manor Ball



OH, TESS, I just love what you've done to Willow Manor.  You were right, as usual, didn't need more than a dash of whitewashing!  And the moat at night!  Now everyone will want one!  Fabulous, of course!!


 
OH, this old thing?  So glad you put me in touch with your little dressmaker!  I intend to wear it more than once, something I never do...it's just so cute...I mean FABULOUS!  My date, my charge, my next husband, well who knows?  I try my best but the sweet old thing still keeps confusing me with a chair...see what I mean?
 
 
 
 
Yes, I do still call him Mr. Eastwood, don't like to overstep my bounds!  He generally calls me, (or the chair) punk, as in "Do you feel lucky, Punk"?   At this point he generally pulls out the chair and in very clipped tones, tells it, "Go ahead, make my day".  Sometimes he says that to me.  At times I have accommodated.  After all, a legend is a legend!  But for the most part, he is a fabulous companion.
 
 
 
 
How adorable of you and Radical Rad to be giving dance lessons on the terrace!  And no, it's never too late to learn the two-step.  Touch dancing is so fabulous!
 
 
 
 
Chocolate martinis..if anything will get me to look less like a chair...this could be it!  Cheers, and I'll  let you know about the fabulous results later.  Oh, Mr. Eastwood, I'm right here, next to the chair!!
 
 
 
 
Some thing's working!  Now Mr.Eastwood is talking to a green girl...."Go ahead, make my day"!  Does he mean me, the green girl, or the chair?   Anyway, we've had a fabulous time.  Tess, no one can throw a ball the way you do!!  See you  next year!!

Heaven said...

Mimi Foxmorton said...

Oh my! Chatting with the green fairy? I think you are in for a wonderful time tonight with Mister Eastwood............. *wink-wink*

Lyn said...

Hi ReBelle-
I keep trying..just want to have fun..Thanks!

Lyn said...

Hi Heaven-
We have the same taste...thanks!!

Lyn said...

Hi Mimi-
I'll try my best..as usual..another night, another ball..thank you!

Tom said...

Clint keeps asking me how many bullets he has left in his gun, but whenever he fires that little green fairy pokes her head out of the barrel and sticks her tongue out. I'm pretty sure there's not much punch in the punch, if you know what I mean...

Catfish Tales said...

Love your 'old thing'!

Lyn said...

Hi Tom-
Mr. Eastwood wants to know if you feel lucky.."Punk"..his words, not mine. But not to worry..he's already forgotten what you said..I thank you, though!!

Helen said...

Lyn, you are lovely in sparkles! Give Mr. Eastwood the boot, I'll lend you mine!

Tess Kincaid said...

Your little gold lame number is stunning! Clint Clint Clint...oh you must introduce us...swoon...

Lyn said...

Hi Catfish Tales-
I'm flattered! Thanks so much...

Bee's Blog said...

You wear the gown beautifully.

Mr Eastwood - doesn't he know beautiful when he sees it???

Lyn said...

Hi Helen-
Thank you, my dear! And I don't think he'd know the difference!!By the way, that scream you hear is my frustration at still not being able to reach your blog..the only one..hmmm!!!

Lyn said...

Hi Tess-
You bring out the best from my closet! Love to bring the 2 of you together..but he may think you're a martini!

Lyn said...

Hi Bee-
Thanks, you're more than kind..maybe he's jaded by now..only has eyes for a chair!!

Karen S. said...

Oh I feel so out of the loop- Tess never shared her dressmaker to me! I must find out who it is...I simply must, and I must begin today, or tomorrow, or surely by the end of the week so that I can be just as stunning next year! Alos, I won't even begin with Clint (as you see we met way back when under or in a bridge over Madison county...moons and boots ago!) Ha! Ha!

Lyn said...

Hi Karen-
You are funny..Clint was sure lucky on that Bridge!! Thanks..

Margaret said...

ah... Clint just likes to have fun. He knows what's goin' on. I'm sure with a drink under his belt, he gave no more attention to that chair.

Sandra Leigh said...

Well, I must say you are a very understanding companion. *I* would be telling Mr. Eastwood that he should get a pair of glasses or find himself another date. He is so vain! On the other hand, he's cute, isn't he?

Yoli said...

Lovely dress! A pleasure to have met you!
