Be there...or be square...


Preparations are well under way for the cyber event of the year, The 6th Annual Willow Manor Ball, this Sunday, October 20th. Lots of hustle and bustle going on at WM this week; the rolling back of carpets, the polishing of floors, and silver. My staff assures me that everything is on schedule for a sparkling evening, which miraculously lasts all day.

A linky widget will be posted, here at Willow Manor, this Sunday, for you to share your blog URL. We want to see your fabulous attire, and outrageous dates! Be sure to wear your dancing shoes. R.A.D. Stainforth, my co-host, tells me there will be lots of brilliant music, including two legendary Arts ... Art Pepper, and Art Blakey. Guinness will be the main refreshment of the evening, including a full bar managed by my trusty staff. My good friend, chef Dominic Franks, tells me the food will be like nothing you've ever tasted on this planet.

Be ready to party like crazed weasels. Remember, anything is possible in cyberspace.

  1. Wow! I may be able to call in after all. I hope so but one can never tell with how things are in these parts. Some places just don't have the technology to allow one to land.
